I’ve been saying this for years; in fact, since I “owned” my first cat. Cats are aliens – from what planet, I don’t know. Most of them are observing humans and by some means, likely telepathic, reporting their findings back to their home planet.
Casper, which is 12 years old, boards the No. 3 service at 10.55am from outside his home in Plymouth, Devon, and travels the entire 11-mile route before returning home about an hour later.
He has been making the journey for so long that all First Bus drivers have now been told to look out for him to ensure he gets off at the right stop.
Susan Finden (Corr), 65, a care worker who is Casper’s owner, said: “Casper has always disappeared for hours at a time but I never understood where he was going.
“Casper is quite quick for his age so he just hops on to the bus before the doors close. He catches the 10.55am service and likes to sit on the back seat.”
Rob Stonehouse (corr), one of the drivers on the route, said: “He usually just curls up at the back of the bus. Sometimes he nips between people’s legs but he never causes any trouble.”
Casper has travelled an estimated 20,000 miles but Mrs Finden says because he is getting old the drivers often have to shuffle him off at the right stop.
A spokeswoman for First Bus said the firm has put a notice up in the office asking them to look after the non-paying passenger. (Source-The Telegraph)
I was going to offer more evidence of felines’ alien behaviors, but both Mouse and Sara are looking at me strangely, as if they know what I’m posting.
I’d better go.
