    Default Freejumping training applied to a cat!

    This is just awesome. I mean, how do you train a cat to do ANYTHING, much less jump like a horse?!

    When we were kids my sister had a guinea pig we trained to jump - she got up to 3" with a 2" spread before we retired her on vet's advice. Pretty funny photo though. She loved her treats!

    This.


    I think the trot poles need to be spaced a little further apart. Kitty seems a bit cramped in their current configuration.

    Figures it'd be a German cat. Dem Chermans can trrrrrrain anyt'ing!

    What I want to know, is where to get those tiny little poles & standards. They ROCK!

    Oh, and I have a Norwegian Forest Cat and an American Snowshoe that would probably give GP Kitty a run for his money. Just gotta find those jumps,....................
