Shark Cat Strikes Again: New YouTube Clip a Viral Sensation (Video)

A feline the Internet has dubbed Shark Cat went viral again this week after his owner posted a new "Shark Week"-themed video of the animal riding an iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaner dressed as a vicious underwater predator.

Shark Cat, whose real name is Max-Arthur, stars in a series of YouTube clips posted this week as a tribute to Discovery Channel's "Shark Week." In the newest installment, Shark Cat sits nonchalantly atop an automatic Roomba vacuum in full uniform as it putters around a kitchen.

Max-Arthur first made waves on YouTube in November 2012, when his owner Helen posted a video of the Roomba-rider chasing a small duckling. That clip has generated some 3 million views. The current Shark Cat has 1.8 million views.

Viewers got a similar kick out of Shark Cat's latest venture.

"Best two minutes of my life," one YouTube user wrote.

"iRobot should enhance the Roomba by adding a Max-Arthur Shark-Cat Tail post-sweep addendum to their machines," a Facebook user commented. "It just adds that finishing, final touch to the sweep."
