Macavity Cat: A Typical Commute

The Grave Digger
English bus drivers have nicknamed a white cat Macavity after it has started using the the busy Walsall to Wolverhampton bus several mornings a week.

The cat was nicknamed Macavity after the mystery cat in T.S Elliot's poem. He gets on the bus in front of a row of 1950s semi-detached houses and jumps off at the next stop: a row of shops down the road which include a fish and chip shop.
This cat has been taking the bus several times a week since January.

Passenger, Paul Brennan, 19, who catches the 331 to work, said: "I first noticed the cat a few weeks ago. At first I thought it had been accompanied by its owner but after the first stop it became quite clear he was on his own.

"He sat at the front of the bus, waited patiently for the next stop and then got off. It was was quite strange at first but now it just seems normal. I suppose he is the perfect passenger really - he sits quietly, minds his own business and then gets off."

Link to the original post. I Can Has Cheezburger? has an intimate interview with Macavity, with direct quotes about the trials and tribulations of a bus commute.

A brief survey of American Bus Drivers revealed the following statistics about suggested names for a bus-riding cat

41% Whiskers
37% Snowball
18% "Get offa my bus, devil-eyed cat!"
04% White kitty
