    Beating this record could be hard, depending on how much your cat likes to play

  • aww! i lov ur cat!

  • Crazy. My cat looks a lot like your cat, loves to fetch, and even prefers that exact same style of toy ball. I think we can beat your record. Cue the theme to Rocky.

  • Best record ever? I think so.
