Didga the cat surfs on a dog. Seriously, this happened.

Why fight like cats and dogs when you can surf like them.

Or, at least that’s the way Ice, the dog, and Didga, the cat, roll. GoPro recently featured their mad skills in the water on its YouTube channel. Didga is a rescue cat, or, as owner Robert Dollwet describes the tabby, “one of the most talented cats in the world.”


As far as Dollwet, who happens to be a dog trainer, is concerned, you can teach an ordinary cat new tricks.

“Who say’s cats can’t learn,” he writes. “Didga, adopted from the shelter is out to prove (with a little help from me) that myth (along with many others) WRONG! I’m here to show you just how smart and teachable cats are using a specific positive ‘methodology’ similar to the way marine animals are taught. On CATMANTOO, you will not only watch Didga do amazing tricks and stunts (you’ve never seen a cat do before!) but, you’ll learn how to teach your cat too, like how to walk on a leash, do a few cats tricks, stop behavioural issues, even teach them to use the human toilet.”


Indeed, watch Didga the Dog-Surfing Cat at their home in Australia.

You can see more of Didga’s adventures on YouTube channel CATMANTOO, on Facebook or Instagram. Because, of course, all the cool cats are on social media these days.
