This cat has got to be the best pal a biker could hope for. Chiquinho, Brazil’s answer to Garfield, always rides on his owner’s motorbike.
The 12-year-old wears a cool pair of sunglasses as he travels around on the bike and has become somewhat of a local celebrity in Rio de Janeiro.
His owner Alexandre Goulart posts hilarious videos on his YouTube channel of him and his ‘gato’ Chiquinho blissfully biking about.
Some of the videos actually appear to show the cat looking for traffic whenever they come to a stop. Chiquinho seems completey unfazed by other motorcycles, or the high speed of the motorcycle.
According to Alexandre, When Chiquinho isn’t on a bike, he likes to lie on his back to soak up the sun, exposing his plump belly.
Alexandre says that the secret to a plump bellied cat that likes to ride motorcycles is a diet of a basic ration of yogurt, beetroot and steamed carrots. (If we didn’t think this cat was odd before, we certainly do now….)
Alexandre continued to explain: “I’ve looked for a meaning in life without Chiquinho, not found. It’s the love of my life. I ask God to give many years of life to him.
“Chiquinho is the king of São Conrado.”
Alexandre takes his cat everywhere during his daily routine.
The cat comes with him to church, the shops, the beach and the pizzeria.
Chiquinho apparently also demands a daily walk down the sandy shores of their nearby beach.
He is definitely the coolest and most unique cat in Brazil, if not the world.
