Even though he initially looks unsure of himself, Yetti pulls of the ride like a pro skater!

Instagram made him the focus of its weekly series highlighting the best furry influencers the platform has to offer: "On today’s #WeeklyFluff, meet Yeti (@yeti_ready), a 5-month-old white Himalayan kitten, who makes moves around the apartment on his new favorite toy."

That was all it took for the video to skyrocket to 11 million views in just three days.

And the heart emojis are filling up the comments section, too. "A real skater cat," one user wrote, while others called the Yeti's talent "awesome" and "impressive."

"He can skate better than me," one person admitted.

A post on Yeti's Instagram page confirmed that he first got on a skateboard about a month ago, which makes him a real natural!
