Skateboarding has reached new heights with an extraordinary feline achievement in China. A remarkable American shorthair cat named Bao Zi has not only broken a Guinness World Record but also shattered expectations with his impressive skateboarding skills. At just 1 year and 8 months old, Bao Zi set a new record for the fastest 10 meters on a skateboard by a cat, covering a distance of 32 feet, 9.2 inches in a remarkable time of only 12.85 seconds. This was reported by SSPDaily.

Bao Zi's owner, professional dog trainer Li Jiangtao, initially brought him home to help tackle a persistent rodent problem. However, it soon became evident that this skateboarding sensation possessed talents far beyond ordinary mousing. Jiangtao, reflecting on his feline companion's aptitude, revealed, "I've been training dogs for over a decade, and I started skateboarding with my own dog for fun. But Bao Zi showed a keen interest in skateboards, so I decided to nurture this behavior."

Nurturing this talent, however, proved to be quite a challenge as training a cat is markedly different from training a dog. Jiangtao commented, "Actually, it's quite challenging to train a cat because they don't learn things as quickly as dogs do. Dogs make improvements day by day, and they remember it. As for cats, they can learn a trick and then forget it the next second." Nevertheless, after about a year of dedicated training, Bao Zi mastered the art of skateboarding, impressing everyone with his speed and agility.

Such exceptional ability has led Jiangtao to expand his business into training cats. Alongside skateboarding, his specialty lies in teaching felines to use toilets and even flush when they finish. With his expertise and cats like Bao Zi pushing the boundaries of what is possible, Jiangtao is paving the way for adventurous and talented cats everywhere.

Bao Zi's awe-inspiring achievement serves as a testament to the remarkable abilities of felines and the endless possibilities that can arise from nurturing their unique talents. In breaking records and challenging perceptions, this skateboarding sensation has truly made his mark in history, leaving us marveling at what cats can achieve when given the opportunity. The thrilling world of skateboarding has found an unexpected star in Bao Zi, proving once again that exceptional feats come in all shapes and sizes.
