For many cats, overnight fame might lead to a TV appearance, movie role or hiring a social media manager. We’re happy to report that tuxedo kitty is still down to earth and still riding on the back of his owner’s motorbike, as per usual.
The female cat named Chao Talok, translated to “funny girl,” made headlines last year after netizens in rural Nakhon Sri Thammarat province shared photos and videos of her riding on her owner’s motorcycle. She was spotted again this week after we haven’t seen her on social media for over a year.
Chao Talok’s owner, Wisit Noothapon, said in an interview last year that he worked as a school janitor, and when he spotted a homeless kitten, he felt sorry for the animal and decided to adopt her.
Wisit couldn’t leave Chao Talok home alone, so he started bringing the cat to work every day and trained her to sit on his motorcycle.
Wisit insisted he did it out of necessity.
Considering they’ve been doing this for at least a year, it looks like Chao Talok is a pro at riding a motorcycle now.
