BuzzFeed explains: “Her human, Peter Mares, told BuzzFeed that she started doing it one morning as a sort of stretch and he grabbed his camera. The next morning, she did the same thing and he rewarded her with her favorite: coconut oil. Now it’s become so routine that ‘she has come to recognize the camera, and does these “goal hands” whenever she sees it.’”
