Wiske is a very unique cat. Most kitties detest getting dirty and avoid manual labor at all costs. When outdoors, they prefer to sun themselves or catch a quick cat nap.

Wiske, on the other hand, loves to garden and has a knack for yard work –  at least he thinks he does!

Every time his dad Simon breaks out the shovel and gardening gloves, Wiske marches right out into the yard with him to lend a helping paw. Here’s a delightful video of the energetic black and white kitty contributing his landscaping services to Simon’s latest project.

Simon told Love Meow that Wiske is fascinated by everything the great outdoors has to offer.

“There’s a hunter lurking in there, soon to be unleashed probably! But at the moment he’s more than happy to just chase dirt and sticks and anything that seems even remotely interesting!”

Wiske takes curiosity to a whole new level. If it moves and/or makes noise, he is going to chase it, pounce on it, and investigate it. Sticks are his absolute favorite, though.

Simon is a very lucky Cat Dad because Wiske doesn’t just limit himself to yard work. Here he is assisting with the laundry.

Young Wiske has a very patient older brother named Swakke who loves him despite his crazy antics.

Together, the two of them have dozens of adorable photos and videos on their Facebook page Swakke the Cat & Wiske and on Simon’s YouTube channel.

Be sure to follow these two cuties for plenty of sweet, cuddly moments and frequent doses of belly laughs!
