Cat on the Bus

Casper-bus-traveling-cat.jpgA cat has become such a well-known user of a Devon (England) bus service, that its drivers know where to let him off.

Casper, the former shelter cat,  has been queuing with other passengers to get the number three service from his home in Plymouth for months, according to the bus company "First".

Casper's owner Susan Finden, who has had him since 2002, said he had always been a free spirit.

Mrs Finden said she named her pet after Casper the Friendly Ghost, as he has a habit of wandering off. I don't know what the attraction is but he loves big vehicles like lorries and buses she said.


Drivers report that Casper quietly pads on board and curls up on a seat for the ride.

A spokesman the bus company said that drivers had been bussing Casper around for months, but Mrs Finden said she had only just found out about his use of public transport. She said: "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."

A notice has been put up by  the bus company in the bus drivers' break room asking them to look after the Casper if they spot him coming on board.
