From a Cowboy Monkey to a Surfing Cat

Here's something interesting about Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey (besides the fact that he has the coolest name ever):  He's 21 years old, according to the AP!  And he's been riding for longer than many of you have been alive:  18 years!

Now I remember seeing Whiplash once or twice before, but the surfing cat was easily the coolest piece of new video I've seen in weeks.  Its owner says he's training the four-month-old kitten for international competitions.  SAY WHAT?  How many cats know how to surf?
