With Catlike Agility

Let's briefly examine the phrase "with catlike agility."

I was watching the White Sox today, and one of the commentators (whom I abhor) said, "Man, Joe Crede really dove out for that ball with catlike agility." My main problem with this statement is that according to http://www.dictionary.com, to be agile means "characterized by quickness, lightness, and ease of movement; nimble."
My cats are not agile, by this definition. My cats can run fast, but they frequently lose their balance, slide around on smooth surfaces, and fall off of ledges. In other words, they are quick, but not graceful. Then again, this description really does describe Joe Crede, except for the quickness part.
