Cat taking a bus

Here's a fun article about a cat that has learnt how to take a bus - though of course I don't think this would be very welcome in Singapore, and from the comments in the article, may not be very welcome in England either!

Mystery Cats takes regular bus

Dog Takes Bus To Go Bar Hopping

November 9, 2006.

York, England (AHN) - Gary Kay, a dog owner from Dunnington, York in northern England, has to chain his pet to prevent his terrier from taking a bus ride to go on nightly bar hoppings.
Kay said his dog "Ratty" regularly takes the bus on his own to a bar known as Black Bull in Hull Road, York. According to the York Post newspaper, the dog visits the bar twice a week because the barmaid feeds him sausages.

However, the bar started catering to the elite market and banned all animals from entering the premises.

Kay said Ratty found a new local bar named Rose and Crown Pub in Lawrence Street to frequent.

He told the newspaper that his dog gets off the bus at the Black Bull on his own then crosess the street and turn up at the Rose and Crown.

Kay said, "I've had to start chaining him up because, although he can get to the pub on his own he can't get home. I've no idea how he is doing any of this or how he crosses the road. This dog just has a mind of his own."

Reminds me of the dog which tried to take the bus at Toa Payoh some time ago. He went in and confidently walked around looking and sniffing at the passengers and finally settled on the empty back seat. I tried to lure him out with some cat kibbles but he was not interested. Finally the bus driver took a broom and shooed him out. He looked well fed, hope he found his way back home again…

Hi Anonymous I think the people who commented were worried that others would object - ie that they would crack down on the cat :) I hope that they're wrong though but I also hope the cat doesn't get run over one day!

Cat getting a free ride eh... :)
So cute but very strange ... i cant believe that they know which stop to alight. It's either we can't see the "person" who's with the cat or the cat is a human in disguise :a

They might have some sense in where to alight I guess. There's a cat that used to take the lift with me and it always got out on the 2nd floor where it lives! Guess they know it's the first stop that matters.
