Videos of cat in shark costume riding Roomba hits 13 million views

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON - Max the cat is becoming very popular and has recently hit 2 milestones - 13 million views and 13 years old.

Max, you see, was dressed up one day as a shark… and got onto his human mom's robot vacuum cleaner, called a Roomba.

A video was made of the cat cleaning the floors - and the rest is history.

Max is now known as The Roomba Shark Cat, in honor of the brand of robot vacuum he rides in videos that have more than 13 million views.

Just last year, he was named THE most important cat out of 30 finalists in 2013 by BuzzFeed.

Now, he's showing up everywhere: He was in People magazine, local TV, a wedding cake of him and there has been a Lego version of him created - along with a duckling that is also in the videos.

Max lives with his mom in Houston and a pit bull dog named Sharky.

Max just turned 13 a few weeks ago - and shows no signs of slowing down on the Roomba! Human Mom Helen Arnold told KHOU-TV the feline can spend hours bumping into wall after wall and spinning around on the robotic vacuum cleaner.

Last year, he released a special video during Shark Week.

Max apparently fell in love with the Roomba when Arnold first bought it - four years ago -- and he hasn't slowed up yet.
