Cats are more environmentally conscious and will have no truck with such things.

Cats have more dignity than to belittle themselves for the amusement of people. Cat amuse us by accidentally falling off furniture.

Driving would be for a lesser species that has to ferry the cat around. Tounge1.gif Those doggies are very clever though and uber cute.

That is a seriously cool bunch of dogs.

The cat says she always knew the dogs could be useful - now she can train them to drive to the fish shop to get her barramundi.

You're possibly right.  happy.gif but it does explain why dogs chase cars.  They really just want to drive them.  biggrin.gif

And now that you mention it, it explains why Buttercup prefers to travel in the front of the car - she thinks she's going to get to drive (in your dreams Butterball).

FYI, she travels in the back part of the wagon, or on the back seat all nicely strapped in.

Don't bet on it. I have a Burmese cat who has no dignity whatsoever, and more brains than any cat has a right to. I remember the day we picked him up from the breeder, he was 12 weeks old and as she handed him to me she said "This one will keep you on your toes, he's got more front than Myer and more energy than the Energizer bunny" And 6 years down the track, we're still waiting for him to mature and slow down.

I could easily see him driving a car, and I don't dare let him in my Prius as it has pushbutton start and he'd figure it out in a flash!

Dogs pass driving test

They may not have owners yet, but these dogs are now licenced to drive their motor vehicles on the road.

I suspect driving around NZ just got all shades more interesting. laugh.gif

I was just coming in to post the update Spikey - you bet me to it.   original.gif

Driving in NZ has always been *ahem* interesting.

DH learned to drive in NZ. His stories are kind of harrowing, but amazing. Amazing that he's still alive after driving around in a death trap of a car. rolleyes.gif

*Snort* Whenever Bandit gets in the car he jumps over and sits up in the passenger seat and then tries to get in my lap when I am in the drivers seat. This is before I've strapped him in!

It's a great story and great reminder for people at this time of year that rescue pets are always a great option!
