A British shorthair cat named Qiqi has gained attention among Chinese netizens for its extraordinary climbing skills, earning it the nickname “spider-cat.” The three-year-old feline was recently captured on video scaling a wall with ease by its owner, Ms Luo, a high school teacher residing in Leshan City, Sichuan Province. Ms Luo revealed that Qiqi has always had a fondness for climbing and would do so to reach the highest point possible. While initially concerned about the cat’s safety, Ms Luo was amazed at Qiqi’s agility and has since been amused by her pet’s antics.
Last month, a British shorthair owned by Ms. Luo, who happens to be a high school teacher, grabbed her attention with its amusing antics. The incident took place in Leshan city, located in the southwest region of Sichuan province in China.
Ms. Luo, a Chinese pet owner, shared that her cat Qiqi has always had a passion for climbing and spends her days leaping up and down. She started sharing videos of Qiqi’s “mountaineering expeditions” online, and one of the clips went viral on Douyin, a Chinese platform similar to TikTok. People were amazed by the agility of the British shorthair and nicknamed her the “spider cat.” One comment referred to Qiqi as the cat version of Spider-Man, while another compared her to a lizard climbing down the wall. Some netizens expressed concerns about the damage to Ms. Luo’s furniture and wallpaper.
Meet Qiqi, a three-year-old British shorthair residing in Leshan city, southwest China. She has gained popularity as the ‘spider-cat’ after a video went viral of her effortlessly climbing a wall like a lizard. It is no surprise that cats are skilled climbers with their strong hindquarters and back muscles, allowing them to jump several feet in any direction. Their claws provide excellent grip and leverage when climbing up vertical surfaces such as trees. Although there are times when they may misjudge the distance, most of the time, they land softly. While Qiqi can climb anywhere she wants, her furry friend Mi Bu, another British shorthair from Guizhou province, wasn’t as lucky. A trending clip shows Mi Bu struggling to climb over a pet gate while being held down by his buddy, a Shiba Inu named Mi Yuan. Source: dailymail.co.uk
