What breed of cat jumps the longest?
- In a battle to see which breed is best at leaping, any of these will undoubtedly come out on top.
- The title of Guinness World Record holder for the longest leap was bestowed to one particular cat known as Waffle the Warrior.
- In 2018, Waffle made a leap of seven feet (213.36 cm).

How high can a cat jump?
The average height that a domestic cat can jump to without running is around five feet. This suggests that cats have a jumping ability of between 6 and 8 feet (2.45 meters). In contrast, the human species holds the record for the highest vertical leap at 8 feet (2.45 meters). You can’t possibly leap higher than your itty-bitty pet, can you?
What is the world’s highest jump?
In 1993, a new men’s high jump world record was established and has stood ever since. In those days, Javier Sotomayor of Spain established the bar at 2.45 meters, or 8 feet and 0.5 inches! That’s an astoundingly lofty goal! To add insult to injury, it is not even close to being high enough for the typical house cat to jump over; to say nothing of the comparatively tall domestic cats.
How to make your cat love jumping?
You may satisfy your cat’s need to leap by giving your home more vertical attraction. Your cat will thank you for it. Think of things like cat trees and towering scratching posts, as well as shelves of varying heights that your cat can jump between. You may even give your cat the opportunity to climb and leap on tree trunks if you have an outdoor catio that you can put furniture in.
