Crazy Cats Go Cruising

Waffle and Tirzah are two cats who really know how to make an entrance! At the recent Steel City Kitties cat show, Waffle rode in child-size Model A followed by his sister Tirzah, who rode in a two-wheeled cart pulled by the little car.

Waffle, a black and white tuxedo cat, and Tirzah, a tortoiseshell, are owned by Greg and Karen Sue McCandless of Butler, PA.

"We never planned any of this, but Waffle loves his little car and they both love the attention they get," said Mrs. McCandless.

While most of the cats in the show were purebred, Waffle and Tirzah were entered in a class for household pets of unknown pedigree. Both cats won ribbons, but their owners learned that they would rather entertain than compete.

"It is such a good feeling when you are out there with the cat car and people are smiling," said Mr. McCandless.

  1. From a kitty point of view, I can't see what's not to like. After all, the car gives them a very efficient way to keep an eye on their territories. And I can't think of any animal better at conserving their energy than a cat.


  2. I absolutely love this post. Who would have ever thought you could get a cat to cooperate long enough and sit still long enough to ride in a car without restraints.

  3. What a great way to have fun with a cat.

  4. Hey, it's Jet here. That's a riot! My feline brothers would never agree to that experience... they're kind of diva-ish.

  5. Oh how I love it that house cats are driving the cars! Hee hee, how fun, love this post.
