Kitten has an adorable attempt to jump onto a couch in Turkey

A kitten braced itself to leap onto a sofa but didn't even manage to touch the side of the couch during its feeble attempt at its home in Istanbul, Turkey.

The tiny kitten, named Simit, was filmed landing in a starfish position with his limbs extended after pouncing on June 13.

The owner commented on the adorable attempt, saying: "He falls in the cutest way he can."
