Here is a kitty who will take your breath away! Didga (pronounced DID-ja, as in didgeridoo) is an Australian feline who loves to skateboard! Here are some of her best tricks… but don’t think this came about over night. Didga learned her skills for 18 months, and this video took 6 months to shoot, often with two camera operators. You can tell how much she loves it — and I would too if I had the beautiful Australian coastline to look at while I skated! Make sure you watch all the way through — there are some very cute shots at the end.
In case you are wondering, Didga’s human, Robert Dollwet, is an animal trainer with 33 years of experience… and he adores his girl!

OMC, Sparkle. That was a pawsome video. Didga is super talented. We really liked the end when he had Wilson, the dog, riding behind him. Thanks for sharing. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

I’m too sleepy to skate today…however I will be ice dancing tomorrow
Hugs madi your bfff
I’ve seen that before and assumed it was special effects – I kept wondering who is making the skateboard move? But it is fun not matter how it was created.
Sparkle Cat says
Actually, except for the shot at the beginning with the skateboard moving by itself (and of course the slow motion) it’s all real! You can tell the skateboard was mounted to a camera dolly in some shots, but it was Didga’s choice to be there.
Glogirly and Katie says
We are in LOVE with Didga!!!
Now that is one cool cat,xx Speedy
Toby & Leia says
What a beautiful and talented girl she is! And her hoomin clearly understands Kitteh to get such results. Our Mom really needed something like this today. TY so much for sharing.
Fraidy Cats! says
mol! how pawsome! great movie, Sparkle! thanks for sharing. Didja has some great moves 🙂 Our mom wonders now if Hollie would like to skate since she likes to carpet surf on her cardboard scratchers…hmmm…
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie
That was AMAZING……Didga got some pets and admiration too – which is nice….not just from her trainer but from passersby as well. Bless her heart…..
Angel Abby says
Wow oh wow we want to get one of those skateboards for Annabelle. Maybe she’ll skate off to Kansas!

I especially liked seein’ Didga hope over that dog, Pippa. Oohhh.. and when she jumped on that guy’s shoulders? PRICELESS.
MOL! I could see my trying that one!
The Island Cats says
How cool! Didja is very talented on that skateboard!
Well, that was great fun. That cat is so good. They sure did a good job training that kitty. Have a terrific day.
Katie Bella says
Now THAT was a fab treat this morning. Fanks you Sparkle. LOVED it.
Hannah and Lucy says
Sparkle that was an amazing video of Didga skate boarding – sad to say Mum hasn’t got a skate board or we’d have liked to try that.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
