Our pets are lucky: while we're commuting to work they get to lie around at home, doing absolutely nothing. So this cat, who rides the rails in Tokyo, must have a pretty good job if it gets him out of bed every day.
Since 2013 passengers on the Seibu Ikebukuro line have shared their train with this four legged passenger. The route runs from one of the city's busiest districts out to the suburbs, so it really seems like he's going to and from his office.
No one knows who this mysterious cat belongs to - he doesn't wear a collar or travel with an owner - but the other passengers have made him feel welcome.

According to Rocket News, Japanese railways are very strict about pets, and require them to be kept in a box whenever they ride, so they must have some sort of arrangement with this cat.
He even travels with other feline friends every once in a while.
It's been a few years since the last update on the mysterious subway cat, but we like to hope that he's still making his trip every day. I wonder if he works on weekends?
