I think this is in Israel and the cat is Mitzi. She is a calico – tortie-and-white and quite the little madam (catitude). Very confident and thoroughly enjoying the company of the commuters. Only one commuter touches her but they accept her unquestioningly, it appears. Israel is known for their stray cats and in general there is a decent relationship with cats in Israel. For instance they are the only country beyond certain European countries where declawing cats is banned. That’s quite indicative of a caring relationship.

Can we call her a ‘working cat’? I think so as she greets the commuters and I’d hope that she makes them smile. That’s a contribution to human welfare!

  1. Ironic that Israel does have a good general attitude and policy on cats, while in practice (at least in this video) they were a little indifferent to this one cat who was glad to be there for them. Yeah, only one person petted her, a gentleman. I’d expect at least a smile from the girl too, but they were apparently just all business. A lost opportunity to appreciate a uniquely, pleasant moment, to connect with nature amidst the cold, unnatural steel and concrete wasteland. Maybe they didn’t want to spook or bother her.

    • Totally agree that they lost an opportunity to enjoy the moment and pet the cat. Most almost ignored her. At least they accepted her and didn’t do anything stupid. And the railway staff appear to have accepted the cat. I am not sure it would be the same here. They’d probably have a fit and panic.
