The Caturday Report! Max The Shark Cat Loves Riding His Roomba

"This is Max, a 12-year-old cat dressed in a shark suit, riding on top of a Roomba vacuum.

"He loves to the ride the Roomba," Max's owner, Helen Arnold of Houston told "He does it pretty much every day. Sometimes I put it away, and if the Roomba is hidden somewhere in the corner, he just sits there and looks at me."

Max's shark impersonation is more precious than ferocious as he dons his adorable shark costume, which was actually originally intended for Arnold's pet dog.

"I do costumes for Halloween and my dog's name is Sharky, so we've been looking for a shark costume for him," Arnold, 33, explained. "But I haven't found a good shark costume for a dog, so I bought this one and it didn't fit him so we tried it on the cat."

Arnold and her husband rescued Max from behind an abandoned house as a kitten. They first discovered his love for riding the Roomba five years ago when they purchased the vacuum.

"One day he was riding it when I got home," said Arnold. "It was scary. He knows how to press the button."

The adorable "Shark Cat" YouTube video has more than 713,000 views since Arnold posted it on Aug. 5."


Here is the above mentioned Sharkcat video,  with Jaws soundtrack music added in by me for extra dramatic effect! :)
