Of course your cat has the record 'sweetest pet in the world' to his name. But did you know that his furry cat colleagues have also achieved all kinds of bizarre and sometimes almost unbelievable records? Check this out!
1. This cat stepped itself a record distance, along with a dog
Cats and dogs mortal enemies? That certainly does not apply to cat Sashimi and his dog friend Lollipop. These Canadian twosome form a top team. With two of them on one step, the duo managed to cover five meters in 4.73 seconds. With that they drove themselves to a record, namely that of 'Fastest 5 meters on a scooter by a cat and dog'!
2. And this cat performs the most tricks in one minute
Can your cat do many tricks? Let's see if you get close to Austrian Anika Moritz and her cat Alexis. Anika has been training her pet since childhood and with a great result: in 2020 she managed to perform 26 different tricks in one minute for Alexis. Most ever in one minute by a cat!
3. This furry four-legged friend can jump a record distance
Kat Waffle the Warrior from America can jump even further than his name is long. The pet managed to bridge more than 213 centimeters with one jump. And not from the ground, but from stool to stool. take a look . Very clever, especially when you consider that Waffle was already ten years old when reaching this record !
4. This cat has a record number of followers on Instagram
Maybe the next record will give you ideas. Kat Nala is a true influencer. She has her own Instagram page , with – hold on – no less than 4.4 million followers! The whole world is digitally watching the adventures of this former orphan kitten and her beautiful new life. Small side note: her owner will undoubtedly earn a lot of money with that…
5. This is the tallest cat scratching post in the world
Katon's cat houses are great in every way, but in terms of size they are dwarfed by the next record: the tallest scratching post in the world. The structure was assembled in China in 2018 and was no less than 9.85 (!) meters high. In total, the “pile” consisted of fifteen bearings and weighed more than 9,000 kilograms. Big question: who has enough room at home for this record-breaking scratching post…?
6. That's how long the longest cat whiskers ever are
A cat cannot live without its whiskers. He uses them to explore the environment and can spot possible prey with them. Kat Kaija Kyllön from Finland must therefore be a super hunter. With a length of 19 centimeters, he has the longest whiskers in the world!
7. And last but not least: the richest cat in the world
We close with a bang record. You have owners who love their cat and you have owners who go just that little bit further. This became clear in 1988 when the Englishman Ben Rea died. He donated his fortune not to his relatives, but to his beloved cat Blackie. In total, the furry four-legged friend inherited 7 million English pounds. That is converted to almost 8 million euros. What?!
