Watch The Cat Who Jumped Farther Than Any Cat Before

This feline can fly.

Alley leaped 6 feet to set the Guinness World Record for longest jump made by a cat, according to the newly released 2015 edition of Guinness World Records.

What's more amazing is that Alley, a performer for the Acro-Cats circus in Chicago, soared into kitty track and field history from humble beginnings. Alley was a stray who was found in a Chicago alleyway, the video above explains.

"Now she's a star," Alley's owner and Acro-Cats creator, Samantha Martin, said.

If Alley can vocalize like she jumps, maybe she can take on the mark for the loudest purr. Yep, there is such a record.
