kim pimmel is a designer, photographer, and inventor who just made one of the most amusing pet products we’ve seen to date. the DIY project saw pimmel design and build a custom electric skateboard for his cat to ride around the house. a small treat is placed into a throttle lever, which is pulled by the feline to retrieve a snack. upon pawing at the throttle, the skateboard is propelled forward and moves zooms the cat around — and she seems to like it.
