This first story has been all over the Internet, so apologies if you’ve seen it elsewhere. A cat in England has taken to riding the bus each morning. It’s a brief ride (one stop only) that takes the feline suspiciously close to a fish-and-chip shop. One blogger argues that only an escaped lab cat could navigate public transit, a feline Mrs. Frisby as it were. Catmanager thinks the blogger doesn’t know enough cats.
A story from earlier in year tells of Tama, a cat appointed honorary stationmaster of a Japanese railway station. Although the original news story doesn’t seem to be available, a photo and some text from the original article are preserved at this blog.
From one of catmanager’s favorite feline Web sites, Purr-n-Fur, a profile of the resident cats of the Ft. Smith, AK, Trolley Museum. Purr-n-Fur also has several stories of cats taking nonpublic means of transportation such as airship, military vessel, methanol tanker, and spaceship.
