Hitchhiker kittie

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Does anyone else's cat like to hitch a ride on their car? Whenever our Boogie is outside and I return from taking my daughter to school,she is sprawled out in the driveway waiting for me! I stop and she jumps on the hood,either bracing on the antenna or climbing on the very top of the car,to "hitch" a ride to the house. Of course,if there was any danger to her,I wouldn't let her get away with it,but she LOVES it!! Am I crazy or what?

Isn't it dangerous?
It sounds so very hliarious though. I've never heard of a car-surfing kitty before! Maybe she likes the vibrations of the motor?

It IS hilarious!! I'd give anything to catch it on video! The car just barely crawls along and I can always see her.She sits so still it's amazing.I think she just likes knowing she has conquered such big prey!! I've never seen anything like it.

What we do for the love of a cat. They know how to train us, don't they?

You have to record that, it sounds hilarious...My cats arn't allowed outside unless on a leash and when they see my truck they freak out...(think Vet...) You have to send that in to maybe americas funniest animals or something!!

Yeah! But if I had someone to tape it,she probably wouldn't do it! Our other two cats won't get near it,but they sit on the porch and watch her ride. Good thing I live out in the sticks!

This sounds incredibly dangerous to me. Although it is very cute, there's always the possibility she could lose her footing and fall under a tire with devastating results. I know you love Boogie so much and wouldn't want anything harmful to happen to your little girl!

Just FYI, as I know Taterbug, this cat is very much into this! Taterbug drives veeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrry slowly. She loves her cats very much and would never do anything to endanger them. I know it sounds dangerous, but this cat really holds on!! I swear it. Its the weirdest thing. I guess you'd just have to see it. I'd almost worry more about running her over by not letting her jump up there--its either slow down and let her get up or just completely stop.
