    Poor cat! It must have been scared out of its wits a)for riding on a motorcycle and b)having the motorcycle crash.

    I’m glad the rider is OK, but I’m curious as to what happened to the poor kitty who didn’t have a choice in the matter.

    Do he go to the lamb foggo clinic? I bet not, living proof that it is waste of money! Have a safe recovery!

    Hmm hope it was his cat and not one being moved to ferry reach like the ones last year.
    Glad rider is ok.

    Sounds like it was as a cat-astrophe.

  7. concerned says:

    Glad the gentlemen is ok, but could someone let us know if the cat was found and if the cat is ok. This is someone’s pet, would like to know the outcome if possible. Thx

    Takes a special kind of stupid to be carrying a cat on a bike in the first place.
