Urban Village – Motor Meows

A common sight in India are families of 4 or 5 perched precariously together on a motorcycle. Dad driving with another kid in front of him. Mom at the back with a babe clutched on one side and daughter squished between her parents.

Yet the ‘seat’ space is limited… And it turns out, just enough for a cat to comfortably stretch out and have a nice nap!

Bikes make great beds, don't you know!

Don’t believe me? Here’s another ‘scooter kitty’!

Of course the REALLY cool cats hang out beside their motorcycles…

Cool cats

“I’m too sexy for my bike!”

Bandra bike cats don’t need fancy photo ops…

You lookin' at me?

“You lookin’ at me?”

I’ve also seen folks transport their animals by bike – like a goat in front, driver behind. I’m amazed at both the engenuity and circumstances that leads to such creative vehicular adventures.

    It’s funny how similar Jakarta is to Mumbai! Cats are lounging around their motorcycles all over the place here too :-) One funny sight here is a motorcycle with several riders and one has a giant bird-cage strapped to his/her back.

    Necessity being the mother of invention and all that :-)
