So casual.

Cats like catching mice. And this cat apparently likes to catch the train, too.

According to RocketNews24, a commuter kitty has been spotted by various people on Tokyo’s Seibu Ikebukuro Line. The cat looks to be taking the subway solo, just chilling and waiting for its stop. Look how comfortable it is with taking public transportation.

It’s become such a habit that the urban feline even sometimes nods off a bit during the commute.

Pets are supposed to be in carriers if they’re on the subway, but this is no ordinary kitty. It’s doing just fine riding along with humans—better than your typical manspreader, even.. 

And if the cat needs any tips for travel abroad, it can always ask the famous Seattle pup that gets around the city by bus
