Car-surfing Oregon cat sparks police call, but owner says pet loves it

Jesse Dorsett was a bit confused when a Sandy police officer called him Thursday morning asking about one of his cats.

He has three: Pixie, Dixie and Jinx -- named after the Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters.

Apparently someone had reported seeing Pixie, a 4-year-old domestic shorthair, perched on the hood of Dorsett's Volvo as it was driving slowly in the parking lot of a Taco Bell. The witness took video of it, called police and talked to TV stations.

Pixie was indeed on the hood of the SUV, Dorsett admitted.

The officer wanted to know if the cat was injured, Dorsett said. So Dorsett woke up Pixie at his Rockwood home, put her on his bed and took cellphone video as she sleepily looked around and sent the clip to the officer. Pixie then hopped down and went back to sleep.

1. No problem with that at all...

 

After reading the article, the owner sounds more conscientious than most dumbass pet owners that I know...

2. Funny - Omaha used to have a chihuahua that does this

Attending the College World Series for several years, I've seen a guy - a couple of years in a row, and randomly - driving in downtown Omaha in a military Jeep or VW Thing (I honestly can't remember which) and his chihuahua does this exact thing - the dog clearly loved it. My kids did too.
