Spider cat

A daredevil cat in the UK named Charlie has earned the nickname Spider-cat for his fearless gravity defying antics.

Charlie is regularly seen scaling a two-storey 13ft wall of a block of flats to get into his first floor home, which has turned the seven-year old into a local celebrity in Denny, Scotland.

Owner Hannah Smith explained: “If no one hears him at the front door, he then wanders round to the back of the buildings to find the balcony. He then climbs up the balcony to get in.”

She added: “I think it is totally incredible how Charlie is able to climb up a roughcast wall. I’ve seen cats climb trees but I’ve never seen a cat climb a wall. It’s amazing.”
