Casper the cat catches bus

A cunning cat in Devon has worked out how to bag a free ride on a bus.

Casper has been queuing with other passengers to get the Number 3 bus from his home in Plymouth for months.

He often curls up on a seat during the journey and has become so well known on the bus that the drivers even know where to let him off!

A spokesman for the bus company said drivers had been bussing Casper around for months, but his owner had only just found out he was using public transport.

Susan Finden said her rescue pet had a habit of wandering off: "He does love people, and I don't know what the attraction is but he loves big vehicles like lorries and buses."
