Kit Kat has achieved an incredible milestone by securing a spot in the Guinness World Record.
According to the Guinness World Records, animal trainer and talent producer, Trish rescued Kit Kat when she found him and his siblings in a barn with their mother.
With his owner, Kit Kat showed off his jump-roping skills by skipping nine times to break the record for most skips by a cat in 60 seconds.
“The feline had been training for this moment his whole life,” Guinness World Records said.
Owner Trisha Seifried shared insights into Kit Kat’s journey, revealing, “By six months old, Kit Kat was jumping rope in front of huge crowds of people at the farm, helping to bust myths that cats can’t be trained.”
Jumping ropes is not just the only talent Kit Kat has. The feline can do around 20 tricks, including giving high fives, waving, spinning, meowing on command, going to a mark, and touching with his paw, GWS said.
“He loves to learn. When treats are involved, he puts his whole heart into it,” Ms Seifried said. “He will spin around with excitement and try to offer all of the things he knows!”
Seifried said, “Jumping rope is definitely his most impressive trick. However, because of his age, we do keep his jumping to a minimum. I would say his favorite trick now is high five. He loves high-fiving all his fans at events!”
She added: “Kit Kat LOVES performing his tricks! He has been performing since he was a tiny kitten, and you can tell how excited he is to get out on the floor to show off his stuff.
The feline sensation’s repertoire includes the jump-roping feat that earned him a world record, a social media campaign for Friskies cat food, and an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
