The amusing scene was captured on Sunday, October 11 by a passenger travelling in the north-western Chinese region of Inner Mongolia. The cat, whose name is unknown, could be seen being walked from the carriage by a no-nonsense ticket inspector.
The sight of its little back paws tapping shamefully along the floor during its forced removal has tickled cat and dog lovers alike, with many sympathising with the naughty – or skint – feline.
Now, there could have well been other reasons why cat was told to sling its hook. It could have been meowing too loudly in the silent cabin, or spreading itself out across two reserved seats and refusing to move.
However, it does look like quite a good cat so I can’t imagine it got up to too much mischief before it was shown the door. Either way, people have fallen tail over whiskers for this unlucky traveller.
One person commented, ‘Hahaha this is too adorable. Look at the way it was walking with choppy steps,’ while another remarked, ‘The cat must thought it could pay for a ticket with its overloading cuteness.’
