If you live in an urban area, odds are, you take public transportation every now and then. But have you become famous for it?
A very handsome tuxedo cat has for just that reason…waiting for the tram! In the Netherlands, Ake the cat has caught the attention of the folks that rely on the transit system to get around. Residents of Rotterdam-Kralingen have really taken a liking to the little commuter.
This is Ake.
He”s waited at this tram stop every day for ten years.
He always gets a ride back to his stop to take pictures with his adoring fans…
And also so his owner knows where to find him to take him home.
Rain or shine, he loves to hang around with his fellow commuters.
Ake”s even got his own sign that reads, “Seat only to be used by black-and-white cat.”
Everyone loves him and likes to feed him snacks.
Though his owner recently posted on Ake”s Facebook page notifying people that he”s got an illness that requires a special diet, so please don”t feed the tram cat!
Ake”s owner is surprised by her cat”s sudden rise to fame within her town…and worldwide.
She reassures all of his fans that he can always come home and stay inside if he wants.
He just really likes hanging out with passersby…
…And everyone loves him back!
Just goes to show that sometimes even adorable cats can take comfort in a daily routine. Ake serves as a reminder that we should all take pleasure in the little things in life! This kitty”s got it all figured out: shoot the breeze with adoring fans, enjoy the fresh air (rain or shine), and never accept food from strangers!
