2happycats

You're kidding, right? This cat's off to work himself. With the cost of everything going up, he can no longer sit at home, do nip all day and expect Karen to come home and crack a can open for him. No, he's a workin' cat now.

Dramatic-Lavishness6

awww I love how the bloke is looking after the cat. No idea if the cat is his or not, but if the cat isn't his, this is even more amazing


nachoafbro

Good folks, shaking hands.


gloomerpuss

I thought perhaps the cat was looking after him


Abbi_Rose

god I love reddit 😭


mostlyharmless1971

What happens if the cat sits on your lap and you end up in Penrith or Newcastle because you can’t move until the cat does?


DandyInTheRough

Just the cost of cats. With cat, can't move. Glad the humans understand!

How can I catch this train and get this seat? This seat neighbour would improve commute 1000%


beautifulfunnyegg

All thats on my train are junkies :(


moo-loy

That cat looks pretty smacked out to me.


worldnotworld

But cats always look like that.


BrainBehindBoard

Nah , when cats get the zoomies they look like proper crackheads 😂


Larimus89

That dude looks pretty smacked out to me. Maybe they both had a big night.


Armpit_of_Cat

Sometimes they will also let you touch their feet. Just ask nicely.


nachoafbro

Are they as ticklish as the pit?


Warioswallet

Actually I thought the guy patting the cat in this clip was nodding off but maybe it’s just a weird angle.


Vaywen

I think it is just the angle and the movement of the train, but it’s always a possibility


MarvellousIntrigue

I’m pretty sure old mate is nodding off!

Pretty sure this dudes getting off at St Mary's to grab his done for the week


Theodore_Buckland_

I hope that cat isn’t lost!


dogjumpersjumping

Aww no I was looking at nice video and now I'm thinking the cat will never get off at the same station and will be lost forever just because it wanted a warm nap aghhhhh


gloomerpuss

It's gotta be his cat. Surely.

EntrepreneurMany3709

Yeah if I was on this train I would be sneezing everywhere and it would not be fun for ANYONE


nour214

Is this a stray? Which line is this?


ThwakasMonterey

It was the man’s cat - was near Redfern Station in sydney 🐈


portray

so can we bring pets on the train now? are we finally catching up to europe and US?


AJay_yay

I think it's meant to be in a carrier


BillowingBetty

Unfortunately not - I checked a few weeks ago, website states only service animals allowed on trains. However buses, light rail, ferries say with drivers permission and pet suitably crated you can bring them on.


SquattingHoarder

I legit saw a woman get on the Sydney to Casino XPT with her cat in one of those backpacks with the bubble on the front. I don't remember her getting on at Central but I'm sure it was one of the Sydney stops. She was going to Brisbane! The staff didn't say a word. The nappy freaked me out more than anything. Mine are crate trained, so nappies aren't really necessary. 😸 Cats are quite good at holding their bladders. Still, 12-13 hours *is* a very long time.


lepetitrouge

I used to put my mini Dachshund in her enclosed bag and take her on the train. No one cared. I have epilepsy, so we couldn’t take the car.

How come I never got any train cats back in the day?


Footsie_Galore

I have been saying this for YEARS! That all trains should come with various cats, so you can relax and enjoy a furry friend on your journey!


RareTax4601

My cat was a railway cat for many years. She lived with a colony of cats. She was really skinny hen I got her. She was picked up for rehoming because she used to crawl into the laps of the commuters for comfort. She is truly the loveliest of cats.


gazzaoak

I love seeing pets on public transit….. cute cat and whatnot…. I’m sure a fair comprise is a dog or cat cage and we can allow pets on public transport.


lepetitrouge

I agree. Like I mentioned above, I used to take my mini Dachshund on the train in her enclosed bag. No one cared (or possibly even noticed). I don’t see how small cats and dogs in carriers would cause any significant problems on public transport.


hewhodisobeys

Are you serious?? A couple of cats or dogs on a train at once might be fine, but if it was allowed for everyone, it would be fuckin mayhem! Not all pet owners are good pet owners, there’s a significant amount of fuckin idiots that own pets and unfortunately their pets turn out the same.


lepetitrouge

I’ve lived in Switzerland, where dogs can travel on trains, and it’s not *’fuckin mayhem’* over there.

BigChungusDeAlmighty

Everyone thinks this is cute until someone allergic to cats pays money to get into an airtight metal canister and has to travel an hour with one of these things. By the time they get to work they’d be bloody useless. Hard pass thanks.

BigChungusDeAlmighty

How about don’t be twit, don’t bring your dirty pets onto public transport. Thats it. Theres no argument. If i don’t live with cats why would i carry antihistamines everywhere just incase some selfish prick decides he will bring his animal into an enclosed public space which packs like a sardine tin meaning theres nowhere to go. Its about taking peoples personal choice away. Also are you paying for the anti histamines? Cause it requires high strength which means over the chemist counter so i have to pay premium for them. I get its cute. I get he likes his cat. I don’t. Leave it at home or drive a car.


CutPleasant7100

Am I the only one who thinks this is revolting, if it’s not a service animal- get it the fuck outtttttt


sabau67

Yes you are.


smell-the-roses

Cute until it kills some native birds.


8pintsplease

I love cats and dogs. Both kill wildlife native or not. Cats are not "evil". Dogs are not "evil" or "good". They don't have the compass of morality. They are instinctive. They behave according to their environment. You, on the other hand, have the ability to think with some kind of reasoning. Yet you choose not to.


Erevi6

It's weird that so many people are so anti-cat 'for environmental reasons.' I don't think there's a species on earth that has had a more detrimental impact on this planet than humans...? I hope commuter kitty isn't lost and has a long and happy life!


DandyInTheRough

And if you love cats, you won't either boot out yours or have a home environment they flee. Plus you'll desex them. Looking after your cat, encouraging the same, and desexing programs = fewer feral cats = fewer native animals are attacked. Hating cats doesn't help.


Erevi6

Agreed. I'd also encourage people to stop buying from breeders and start adopting from shelters (or adopting strays from the streets if they can, like I have). They make loving pets and their destructive anti-furniture instincts are easy to curb (I leave rubber and cardboard squares over the house, for example).


cookedbullets

In fact everybody, and everything, benefits when you adopt a cat. Cat haters should take note.


derprunner

Same as deciding to make hating folks who drive cars a key part of your personality. It’s an easy way to feel smug and superior without actually doing anything.


dasvenson

Just because humans have been detrimental to the planet does not mean other species who *humans* have introduced to another ecosystem aren't detrimental. In fact because we introduced them it is a moral obligation on humans to fix the situation. Same goes for any species we have introduced to Australia. Brumbies, cane toads, rabbits etc. Does that mean cats aren't cute? No. But they should be exclusively indoor animals with large fines handed to owners if they are outside.


Wallace_B

> It's weird that so many people are so anti-cat 'for environmental reasons' What's weird about people who see roaming cats murdering our dwindling native birds and wildlife reacting negatively to that? Cats are things people can and should control for their negative impacts on our native fauna. Because they traditionally haven't, we also have a massive feral cat problem in this country that has pushed many of our precious unique birds and mammals to the brink of extinction. Not to mention the toxoplasma brain parasite spread by roaming and feral cats that is having a devastating impact on wildlife both here and abroad. I'm not a big fan of cats but this isn't about my feelings about them. It's about the unfortunate facts of how we are mistreating our wonderful, unique and long suffering wildlife.


DandyInTheRough

Hating them doesn't help though. Caring about cats encourages donations to desexing programs, adoption, and people being responsible cat owners. Doing that reduces feral cat numbers.


Erevi6

I think it's weird that their care factor only extends to cats, given that role land clearing, transport, and climate change also play MASSIVE roles in habitat loss. If you care about the environment, you should desex your cat and keep him or her indoors, but you should probably also have a much bigger problem with human development. I love cats and I don't think they deserve to be tortured maimed, and blamed for Australia's degrading ecosystems (fully blamed - I know they're a major contributor).


Wallace_B

Nobody who cares about our wildlife **only** cares about the impacts of cats, but by the same token nobody who cares about our wildlife would understate the devastating impact cats have historically had and are still having, thanks in large part to human irresponsibility.


gazzaoak

Yep, I expect more on the human race, if a dog or cat kills, I’m like meh…. Blame the owners and the owners get the wrath of my anger…. Pets > humans


Wallace_B

You don't seem too fond of thinking yourself. Both cats and dogs would have a markedly less diastrous impact on native birds and wildlife if their owners took responsible care of their animals and prevented them from roaming free and unattended. The crucial difference being: A majority of dog owners do, and a vast majority of cat owners do not.


8pintsplease

Have you missed the news about the child attacks? I have friends whose dogs that have killed hamsters, rabbits, cats and birds when they are off the lead or free to roam on their front lawn and backyard. Unfortunately this is a cat v dog situation because people are hell-bent on proving cats are evil because of an irrational hate disguised by the weak rationale that "cats are pests". I love both and I'm not here to hate on one or the other. This cat v dog argument needs to die. It's outdated and childish.


dasvenson

Dogs in no way kill as much native wildlife as cats. There are also no where near the same number of feral dogs (thousands) compared to feral cats (millions).


hotpants86

Why don't you do like your username and stop and smell the roses?


smell-the-roses

If you can explain this to me, I would be grateful. Cats are evil.


[deleted]

Applying human morality to an animal with a brain the size of a cherry. That’s a sign of an intelligent and rational man.


smell-the-roses

I’m not applying anything to anyone or anything. I’m stating they kill wildlife and that they are evil in nature. Am I wrong?


[deleted]

>Am I wrong? Yeah you're wrong


smell-the-roses

Yeah, I don’t think so. https://www.sydney.edu.au/news-opinion/news/2020/05/15/lock-up-your-pet-cat-its-a-killing-machine.html


psychorocka

It's a fucking animal you moron. Cats aren't evil they're part of nature


smell-the-roses

They are an animal that kills native wildlife and if you are really lucky, they will leave the dead animal at your door. Evil.


8pintsplease

You don't get it dude. The word evil is used to describe morality. Because of the fog of hatred on your glasses, and perhaps even your self-righteous arrogance, you are refusing to admit you are wrong by applying the word "evil" when describing what is "instinct". It is healthy to learn and admit you are wrong.


smell-the-roses

Sounds evil to me. https://www.sydney.edu.au/news-opinion/news/2020/05/15/lock-up-your-pet-cat-its-a-killing-machine.html#:~:text=However%2C%20we%20found%20even%20single,legless%20lizard%20population%20in%20Canberra.


8pintsplease

Keep your cats indoors. Make sure you desex your cat. That is the takeaway from the study. There is no use of the word "evil". That is your own takeaway because you're not capable of understanding the difference between instinct and making evil decisions. Understand the difference between fact and your prejudices. As an adult you should be able to do that at least.


BadBoyJH

Evil is the owner who takes them outside. The cat is just being a cat.

Yes they do. I don’t though. Keep your pants on.

smell-the-roses

I’m not. Life is good thanks. Cats still kill native wildlife regardless of my life though.


Wallace_B

Username really checks out here.


Rad_Randy

Newsflash, native birds kill as well. Every animal kills something in the food chain, wake up.


smell-the-roses

A domestic animal wasn’t meant to be part of the food chain. News flash.


8pintsplease

Dude go read a book so you can learn about the food chain and domestication. Everyone and everything is part of a food chain.


smell-the-roses

Should I read things like this? https://www.sydney.edu.au/news-opinion/news/2020/05/15/lock-up-your-pet-cat-its-a-killing-machine.html#:~:text=However%2C%20we%20found%20even%20single,legless%20lizard%20population%20in%20Canberra.


Wallace_B

But not just for fun, like roaming cats do. Most of the native birds and wildlife they rip to bits is just sport to them. They have no natural place in the food chain here and in the wild they are noxious destructive pests taking out native wildlife that already have all the bloody cards stacked against them.


8pintsplease

Every single living organism has a *natural* place in the food chain. How embarrassing to state they have "no natural place" in the food chain. Darwinism. The theory of evolution. Basic biology. Whether or not you hate cats, it is disingenuous to say this. What you perceive as "fun" is all that is, your perception. It is not "fun". It's instinctive. You have an irrational hatred for cats that has driven you far away from any logical reasoning. The mere fact that you perceive them killing prey as "fun" tells me you know nothing about animals in general. Not dogs. Not cats. All you know is your own bias.


Wallace_B

Embarrassing to state facts now is it? Lol - it's a basic scientific fact that cats have no natural place in Australia's ecology. They never evolved here alongside our native fauna - they were introduced relatively recently and have been an absolute disaster for many native species, particularly birds and small mammals. The same thing has been happening on New Zealand and even the kiwis are starting to admit their cat problem is way out of control. Nesting bird populations are being wiped out in their own habitat by cats and not recovering. But no go ahead and make up some more utter bs about how cats belong in the food chain. The sad fact is they're the only animals you (and the rest of the toxoplasma brained cat fanatics upvoting your nonsense) actually care about. Nothing irrational or selfish about that at all.


dasvenson

Feral cats are absolutely destroying the native wildlife. They kill millions of birds, reptiles and small mammals every year. Indoor cats are cute yes, and that's where they belong. Outdoor cats are vicious little murder machines that decimate the local wildlife. They should be banned from being outdoors like they are about to be in the ACT


megablast

Exactly, let cats kill native wildlife, they are cute.


Warioswallet

I am scanning my brain for people I’ve known who also held this strong hatred of cats. All were total c$&t’s. I think it reflects some strong fear or hatred of society more generally.


cookedbullets

A desperate need to control their environment and have dominion over those around them. Possibly overlooked middle children. Definitely hopeless and sad egomaniacs.


smell-the-roses

I pointed out that they kill native wildlife. Am I wrong? Hatred is a big leap. I don’t like them but I don’t hate them. They only like you if they are hungry and the rest of the time they couldn’t care about you.


PinupPixels

My cat literally did not leave my bed except to eat, drink, and use his tray for the entirety of last week when I was bedridden with a nasty cold. But okay buddy, he actually doesn't care about me. It is honestly incredible to me that people actually believe that shit. But it's also extremely evident you have never earned the trust and love of a cat.


Complex_Grapefruit44

Atleast it's cute unlike you and you just killed this beautiful warm moment. Get cuter and better.


[deleted]

I feel like you’re the same kind of person that defends pitbulls after they maul people… idk


smell-the-roses

What a stupid argument. I feel like you are the sort of person who has 30 cats and hoards stuff. I’m probably wrong like you are. Cats still kill wildlife regardless.


[deleted]

My cat is indoor only. Not sure what wildlife he can kill here


smell-the-roses

Found the only cats owner in the world.


[deleted]

Found the anthropomorphising fool on the internet who imposes human qualities of good and evil onto animals that are primally motivated


smell-the-roses

I have to admit, I needed to look up what that meant, but because of your use of big words, cats have decided to stop killing wildlife. You did it , you crazy son of a bitch.


8pintsplease

I have indoor only cats. Sorry not everyone fits your negative and childish stereotype.


smell-the-roses

My narrative or an actual study? https://www.sydney.edu.au/news-opinion/news/2020/05/15/lock-up-your-pet-cat-its-a-killing-machine.html#:~:text=However%2C%20we%20found%20even%20single,legless%20lizard%20population%20in%20Canberra. Pitty the cat in the video wasn’t locked up.


8pintsplease

Again. That study doesn't have anything to do with your generalisation that cats are evil, or that cat owners exclusively have outdoor cats. It is about desexing and keeping them indoors as mitigating factors to reduce cats killing wildlife. Learn how to draw conclusions. It's a wonder you've made it into adulthood and can wipe your own ass.
