A Clever DIY Electric Skateboard for a Cat That’s Driven by Strategically Placed Treats in the Throttle Lever

MIDI the Cat Electric Skateboard DIY

The very creative engineer and filmmaker Kim Pimmel shows how to create a DIY, treat driven, electric skateboard for cats of his own design. To show how the skateboard works, Pimmel recruited his beautiful gray tabby tortie named MIDI to demonstrate how she keeps the board moving just by reaching for a yummy treat.

I built an electric skateboard for my cat to ride. Put a treat into the throttle lever, and she pulls it to get a snack and a boost!
