Didga Sets a World Record
The 2017 Guinness Book of World Records will have a new entry for the cat who can do the most tricks in one minute. That’s Didga, the skateboarding cat (previously). The skateboarding put her over the top, because how many other cats do that?
The secret to training cats (or any animal) is to make compliance worth the effort to them. Didga may not show it on her face, but the opportunity to have as much fun as she does, plus a spot in the record book, is a big payoff. Trainer Robert Dollwet will tell you it’s certainly not as simple as explaining fame and fortune to a cat, but his methods work. And get this: since this video was made, Didga broke her own record by performing 24 tricks in one minute! Read more about Didga’s record at the Guinness site.
A dog named Smurf also set a record for the most tricks in one minute. He did 32 of them! (via Tastefully Offensive)
