Cat Goes to the Train Station to Meet Its Owner Each Evening

Posted on September 21, 2011  Comments (5)

Graeme, a cat in Melbourne, Australia, walks to the train station with its owner in the morning and then goes off to play (and probably lots of sleep, it is a cat) and then returns in time to meet its owner at the train station after the work day.

The pampered cat cannot get enough of attention, with scores of regulars calling him by name as they stop for a chat and give him a pat on the head. Safety conscious, the sociable moggie is meticulous about using the subway to cross to the city-bound platform, rather than take a dangerous short cut across the tracks.

When the evening peak comes around, Graeme puts on an encore performance, arriving at the opposite platform in time to greet owner Nicole Weinrich as she returns home from work. “He always seems to know which train carriage I am on and will be sitting there behind the yellow line when the doors open, because he is all about safety,” Ms Weinrich said.

But sometimes Graeme can take his desire to be close to his fans a bit too far – he has been known to jump on the train and get off a station or two later. “He doesn’t do it often, but we do worry about that,” Ms Weinrich said.

She said Graeme, believed to be about 12, had roughed it on the street before being saved from the RSPCA’s “death row” six years ago, so his love of people is tempered by his survival instincts.

    Nature goes on surprising us every day. Every time I see a dog or a cat crossing the street I am astonished by the fact that these cute animals cross the street at the exactly places where people do that. Or my dog Nicy recongnizes my foot steps long before I approach our gate. We should be more carefull about these animals as they make us so happy.

    My husband told me about this story so I googled it. I am curious now because at 4pm, I happened to be here before my husband came home and I saw my cat, Jack, jump a little bit after 4pm and waited at the front door for my husband. He gets home between 4:05 to 4:15. Jack was sat up at attention patiently waiting for my husnband. Amazing.
