Not quite discworld related, but close:

Mystery cat takes regular bus to the shops
Bus drivers have nicknamed a white cat Macavity after it has started using the No 331 several mornings a week.

The feline, which has a purple collar, gets onto the busy Walsall to Wolverhampton bus at the same stop most mornings - he then jumps off at the next stop 400m down the road, near a fish and chip shop.


This reminds me of the travelling cat from Terry's The Unadulerated Cat.

Hah, yay MacCavity. People online thought I was nuts when I told them about this cat. Nice to be semi-vindicated.

Also, yay heterochromia. So many white cats (in photos online, anyway) seem to be heterochromic. Wonder if there's a genetic link.
