Valentino The Cat, who is obviously not afraid of streetbikes nor vacuum cleaners!
Scott Kipphut of Meriden, Connecticut sent in this photo and a note:
"Our cat's name is Valentino. He came to us as a stray eight years ago and my wife said I could name him. I'm a huge Valentino Rossi fan, having seen him for the first time at the Dutch Grand Prix in 1997.
"Valentino is a very smart and fast cat who likes to hunt down his prey and play with it before totally controlling it. His humans are Scott & Lynn Kipphut."
