Oscar pretty much jumps wherever he wants to be.

My friends have a kitty who can jump from the floor to the shelf in their closet which is about 6 feet.

If kitty wants somewhere, he'll fiture out a way to get there. MOL

Well, the size of the cat, it's weight, it's age,how good of shape it's in, how long it's legs are, if it's jumping because something is chasing it, and how badly it wants whatever it's jumping toward probably count a lot for how high it can jump. My cats can jump from the recliner arm to the top of the entertainment center which is probably about six feet. It's getting back down that's the trick!!
