    HOUSTON, TX (CBS/KHOU) -- In case you didn't get enough of Shark Week, how about a video of a duck-chasing, Roomba-riding cat in a shark costume. The Houston cat named Max became an internet sensation.

    Max the cat can spend hours bumping into wall after wall and spinning around on the robotic vacuum cleaner, even at 12-years-old. His owner Helen Arnold says, "He might throw a mouse around but that's about it then he gets bored but he loves this Roomba."

    Max fell in love with the Roomba the day Helen Arnold bought in. And the shark suit? Believe it or not he has no problem wearing.

    The video, originally made by Helen and posted on YouTube to show her family back in her home country of Estonia, has gone viral with more than four million views so far. A second video, featuring the family duck has also gone viral. Arnold says, "Usually I edit some of the videos. I edit maybe many hours many weeks and this one I didn't even edit."

    But Max isn't the only video star. Her pit bull Sharky has his own video showing him playing with some chicks that has been viewed nearly six million times.

    But there's just something people love about this video of a really cool cat always ready to Roomba.
