The Cat on the Bus Goes Round and Round A cat is a regular rider on a bus in an English town, hopping on the No. 331 at a stop near a row of semi-detached houses, then debarking at a spot down the road where there just happens to be a fish and chips shop. A fellow rider told Britain's Daily Mail that the feline is "the perfect passenger" — though he never pays.

A cat is a regular rider on a bus in an English town, hopping on the No. 331 at a stop near a row of semi-detached houses, then debarking at a spot down the road where there just happens to be a fish and chips shop. A fellow rider told Britain's Daily Mail that the feline is "the perfect passenger" — though he never pays.

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne.

Another regular rider told Britain's Daily Mail, he is the perfect passenger, really. Minds his own business and then gets off. Well, except he never pays. The cat jumps off at a stop down the road. One clue as to why, there's a fish and chip shop there.

It's MORNING EDITION.
