Watch This Cat Ditch a Dog by Surfing to Safety

Afraid of water? We think not. This cat hangs 10 and steps away as if to say, "No biggie."

Summer’s still here, and there’s still plenty of time to hit the beach — or, as your cat likes to call it, “The BIG Litterbox” — and ride the waves. Yes, even if you’re a cat.

Okay, so this kitty isn’t surfing at the beach or hitting any 10-foot waves, but she does take a brief ride on a longboard across a pool … much to the dismay of the dog pursuing her. After being chased down some steps, the kitty sees her chance and leaps on a waiting surfboard, gliding across the water and casually hopping off on the other side. The dog is left utterly confused … you can almost see “Game Over!” on his face!

Contrary to popular belief, this kitty certainly is not afraid of water, and in a surprising turn of events, it’s the dog who won’t take the plunge once he realizes the cat has outsmarted him. But it wasn’t too hard to outsmart the dog, am I right? Saying “cat outsmarts dog” is redundant. We’re just kitty-ing!

We know plenty of you also harbor dogs in your homes; what ways do your felines outsmart your Fidos?

Thanks to Surf Dog Ricochet for this one!
