I was heartily amused by the story of Casper, a cat from Plymouth in Devon who gets on a bus when he fancies a rest and settles down to sleep on the back seat. You can read the story here.

A client pointed out a similar story about a white cat calledMacavity who takes the bus 400m down the road to the fish and chip shop. His story is here.

I’m intrigued now. We’ve got plenty of patients who arrive by bus for treatment, but I’ve yet to meet one who comes by bus on his own. Perhaps it’s just a matter of time.
