The Tokyo subway seems to have a very unusual and furry frequent passenger on its Seibu Ikebukuro line, a cat, and no one seems to know just where he came from.
The mysterious kitty has been spotted by fellow travelers, who have posted about him all over social media, since 2013, making him a well-seasoned customer.
The cat never quite seems to be pictured next to the same people, leading the Internet to believe that he travels solo and unaccompanied by a human. The clever cat literally hops on the subway all by himself.
However, at various times, the independent feline has been spotted along with another adorable four-legged friend.
He even appears to be so at home on the subway that sometimes the furry little passenger falls asleep on his journeys to and from the city.
Although the rules in Tokyo regarding pets on public transportation are very strict and dictate that animals must be kept in proper carriers or they are not allowed on, it seems that the rail company has made a special exception for their most unique customer.
While this particular cat has remained somewhat of a mystery, seeing as nobody knows if he has a human to go home to or where it is exactly that he goes on his solo adventures, one this is for sure, he never fails to bring smiles to the faces of all the commuters that he crosses and will brighten up anybody’s day on his favorite subway line.
