Stray Calgary kitten boards transit, rides rails to new home with CTrain employee
He may have been lost, he may have been lonely, but a kitten down on his luck changed his life by boarding a CTrain. It was a dark night in September when the feline was spotted prowling inside the Barlow/Max Bell station.
The 6½-month-old tabby charmed strangers he met along the way, enjoying an ear scratch or two. When the kitten bounded up to the platform, he came into view of Calgary Transit’s security video.
Staff watching the screens did a double take when they noticed the obedient kitten sitting patiently behind the yellow line, waiting for the incoming train. As the train’s doors opened, the cat climbed aboard, lapping up attention from delighted riders clamouring to pet him. (City of Calgary Transit / Handout)
