CAT CATCHES THE BUS
Thursday August 6th, 2009
Plymouth puss, Casper is a true endorsement of the merits of public transport. For the last few months this most adventurous of felines has been queing at his local bus stop to catch the number three and enjoy a trip into town and back. So regular are his journeys that drivers know which stop to let him off so he can get home easily.
Although she was unaware of his daytrips, Casper’s owner Susan Finden, who adopted him from a rescue centre seven years ago, was not particularly surprised, 'He'd always go off and have a wander. Once I had to walk a mile-and-a-half with a cat basket to bring him back from a car park… He does love people, and I don't know what the attraction is but he loves big vehicles like lorries and buses.'
Plymouth bus drivers have been instructed to ‘look after the rogue passenger’ and driver Rob Stonehouse who regularly ferries Casper around had this to say, 'He usually just curls up at the back of the bus. Sometimes he nips between people's legs but he never causes any trouble.”
