Reer: Catty Muni bus ain’t having none of it

This 47-Van Ness:

a) is taking its Catbus aspirations way too far.

b) finally found a way to react to being San Francisco’s punching bag day in and day out.

Punk rock cat was more punk rock than all y’all, and nothing was cooler than Sunglass cat’s medically necessary duds, but we never quite expected one of our transit chariots to actually become a cat.

Thanks for the tip, @jchrthomas.

World-weary, wag-worthy pups on Muni

We stop and drop everything when “distinguished” and “Muni” show up in the subject line. Per sender-inner D:
I was on the 33 on my way to Carnaval when I spotted this little guy. He was so relaxed and regal at the same time. I asked the owner if he was still a puppy and he said, “Oh no he’s a good 5 years old!” I wanted to snap a pic of his owner too since they actually looked alike with their gray (white?) hair but was too shy to ask.
If that doesn’t float your boat (??!) there is always a good old-fashioned dog in a bag, from our good friend Amy at Capp Street Crap.

Birds of a feather…end up on the subway

Subway riders are so hard to impress, especially these New York City folks who happened upon a passenger and his rather exotic bird.

Matthew Hayes (@chayesmatthew) tweets:

Midday on the @NYCTSubway. Guy walks onto a train with this.

A fine peacock in all its majesty, with that unmistakable iridescent tail and looking like it knows it’s prettier than everyone else. But judging from the faces of the fellow passengers, it’s just another Tuesday. What would it take to get their attention? A punk rock cat? Bunny in a bonnet? Yoda? We on the best coast have those and more.

Thanks to Amy Y. at Capp Street Crap for the tip.

Easter Bun-day again: bunny in a bonnet on Muni

rabbit bunny on muni in a bed by dhmspector

Attention on the concourse, and be still our beating hearts, we’ve received word of a bunny in a granny cart on Muni. And it’s wearing a…rabbit coozie? It kind of makes the rabbit look like it has bangs, to which we say: werq, Muni bunny.

I’m not up on my rabbit facial recognition skills, but I don’t think this is the bunny on a leash we recently posted. Which means, cross all fingers and toes, that this is a budding trend.

Thank you @dhmspector for the Instagram submission.

Rabbit on a leash waits for Muni

rabbit on muni

From the depths of Reddit comes this delightful street snap: A rabbit on a leash, complete with adorably snug harness, waiting for Muni at Powell station. Redditor Amg137 reports that the rabbit was “was amazingly chill considering how loud that station can be.” Perhaps those bunny ears cover some of the noise from the train?

Enbiggen!

Observe: floppy bunny ears and…is that front-paw foldage?

Shh, don’t tell the Muni rabbit this Boston rabbit rode the T with a bit more freedom:
