Leapfrog and her sister Daffodil came to Cat Adoption Team in April 2013. Being too young for adoption, they spent about a month in foster care. Once the two kittens were old enough, Jeanine Jackson and Porter Raper made Leapfrog and Daffodil a part of their family.
After bringing their new kittens home, the couple noticed that Leapfrog would hop over a specific spot on their kitchen floor. She could walk around it, but she always chose to jump! Jeanine set up a camera to capture one of these jumps on film—the resulting clip was completely cute and oh-so entertaining! Realizing the extent of Leapfrog’s abilities, Jeanine then began placing people, pets, and other fun props on the spot. No matter the setup, this adorable black cat almost always leaps right over it!
When Jeanine started posting the leaps to her Instagram account, a star was born! Leapfrog has more than 15K followers on Instagram, and has been featured on websites like The Dodo and The Daily Mail.
This holiday season, Leapfrog and her family are using her skills to #DoGood. When you donate to CAT in the 2019 Give!Guide, YOU could be entered to win a one-of-a-kind Leapfrog experience!
Leapfrog’s Give!Guide Raffle for CAT:

*Please note: While Leapfrog is lovely, a leap is not guaranteed. After all, she is a cat! Leapfrog and her parents will do their best to accomplish the leap for you, but Leapfrog’s well-being comes first. If she’s up for performing, a leap may not be possible. Thank you for understanding.
