Meet Didga: The One and the Best Skateboarding Cat Ever [Video]

Didga the cat, the latest Internet animal sensation, skateboards better than most people.

Please, meet Didga the cat and her motorized companion Ollie the skateboard. The cute pair recently teamed up and set off for an exciting adventure around a beautiful beach town in Australia.

In the video “Cat Super Skateboarding Adventure,” the amazingly talented feline pulls off a series of pretty cool tricks what probably makes jealous other fellow-cats. The compilation of clips also turned the adventurous feline into something of a celebrity in Australian hometown Coolangatta.

Didga abandoned all fear as he jumps off the board and onto ledges or over objects before parading his skating skills. The cat launched himself on a passer-by, catching him unawares, before coolly landing back on its paws and continuing the ride.

Onlookers are stopped in their tracks as the skateboarding cat casually zips by, checking out the sights in the process. After scaling trees and jumping over obstacles, Didga performs his last trick: leaping over a Rottweiler and landing back on the skateboard without stopping.

YouTube user Craig Weaver commented on the viral video saying: “He’s pretty daring, tricking over a Rottweiler! (I still think he’s a pussy though).”

The YouTube video was filmed by Robert Dollwet, who trained all of the animals featured in the clip.

“I’m a professional animal trainer with a very talented cat named Didga. I have a few viral videos of my cats doing cool tricks & stunts,” the official Facebook page says.

He said that it took him nearly a year and a halt to complete the entire filming, as well as editing process.

After the video was uploaded to Mr. Dollwet’s YouTube channel, called Catmantoo, it has been viewed over 190,000 times in just one week, with one user commenting: “So today I watched a skateboarding cat… My life is complete.”

Another added: “Any second now, that cat will start talking.”

Maybe one day Didga could cooperate with Tillman, a skateboarding bulldog, which appeared in the iPhone commercial. The 2007 clip of the dog riding around on his deck has over 21 million hits to date.

The adorable dog later gained more popularity with his in his the Tv show “Who Let The Dogs Out” on Hallmark Channel, taking part in several commercials and even scoring an endorsement deal from Natural Balance Pet Food, says the Daily Mail.

This Englsih bulldog can not only skateboard but he also took part in the eighth annual Lowes Surf Dog Competition-Unleashed by Petco. Even tohugh it was his  first time catching waves, the 60-pound celebrity caninedid not disappoint his fans, taking first place in the large dog category.
