    A healthy, medium-sized cat can jump about six times their length or over eight feet (2.5 metres) in a single leap thanks to strong muscles in their back legs, veterinarians say.

    Small kittens have been captured on video while hopping and climbing on a wall that appeared to be a strange competition. A little spider-cat managed to reach a height of nearly six feet (two metres) and apparently won the competition when they froze for a second and slowly descended from the wall. 

    There could be many reasons for this behaviour, but one of the most likely is that the cats were simply exercising.

      Canines love walking with their human friends above all other things - and hate it when people say it's time to go home.
