This gives me the heebie-jeebies. It terrifies me. Yet the cat’s owner who is driving the motor scooter (moped) seems quite content with idea of having his black-and-white cat ride pillion without any safety devices or mechanism to keep him on the bike.
It would appear that the only thing keeping the cat on the bike is his claws grabbing his owner’s shirt. I see there appears to be a string or something around the cat but it would seem to serve no practical purposes. All is well as the bike proceedings along the road in a nice straight line and at steady speed. But what would happen if the driver had to stop quickly or swerve to avoid a pedestrian or another vehicle?
The cat would most likely fall off onto the road where, of course, he/she would risk being killed or severely injured. Someone will find the video amusing. I find it more scary and worrying.

Yes, there is an amusing side to the video. I can see that clearly but for me my anxiety dampens down my amusement.
