Poor commuting kitty

Quote:
A cat which became famous for catching the same bus every day for four years has been run over and killed - while crossing the road to catch its daily lift.

Crafty Casper died in a hit and run accident as he tried to board the No3 service.

He hopped on the bus around 10am every morning and sat on the back seat throughout its entire 11 mile route.

The freeloading Feline would travel around his home city of Plymouth, Devon, for up to an hour before arriving back at the same stop.

But after an estimated 20,000 miles on the bus Casper was killed crossing the road to catch his daily ride.


The entire story can be read at....

Re: Poor commuting kitty

I remember reading about him here some time last year. Poor little kitty.

Awww. Poor kitty. He was about 11-12 years old I think. Guess he just couldn't get across the road like he used to.

I bet he is missed by his community. A local star!

Re: Poor commuting kitty

Oh dear - poor thing, but what an interesting life he led! ...Whatever prompted him to start this habit...?

I bet the bus drivers are heartbroken...
