Loyal Cat Walks His Little Girl To The School Bus Every Morning

For many parents, a new school year means seeing their kids off to the school bus every morning.

But in one family, that duty belongs to their cat, who insists on seeing his favorite human to and from her bus stop every day.

When Jessica Leatherman’s 7-year-old daughter started first grade this year, she began taking the school bus. But she doesn’t wait at the bus stop alone.

She has someone special making sure she gets to school safely — the family’s rescue cat, Craig.

Leatherman adopted the black-and-white feline in 2019 after spotting him at an adoption event. Craig had been in a shelter for over eight months, but fit right in as soon as he joined the Leatherman family.

“He is very, very laid back. I don’t think there’s a single thing that can rattle him — there could be thunder and lightning, and he doesn’t even wake up,” Leatherman told The Dodo. “When he is awake, he’s like a clown. He loves to knock things off of countertops to make you pay attention to him.”
@craig_the_cat Besties for life! I noticed today that Craig sits when he sees the bus. Also, look at his tail wag! 😂🤣 #craigthecat #busduty #ThatCloseMessenger ♬ Manke, honobo, everyday, funny, loop - arachang

When Leatherman’s daughter started the school year, Craig took note of her new routine. “The bus stops right in front of our house, and I figured I’d let him come outside [so he could] hang out with me,” Leatherman said. “But instead of me, he chose to hang out with her, and he followed her down the sidewalk and down the driveway and just sat there the entire time she was waiting for the bus.”

“When it happened, I was like, ‘Is he really doing this?’ And as soon as she got on, I expected him to wander back to me, but he sat there and made sure she got on the bus and then watched it drive away,” she continued. “He will not leave the corner of the bus stop until it is out of sight.”

Craig has walked her to the bus stop every single day since. “He’s given himself the job,” said the girl’s mother. “I don’t know why but it’s super sweet.”

“Now all the neighborhood kids know him, and the whole bus is like, ‘Craig!’ whenever they pull up,” Leatherman said. “So he’s just kind of become this sweet little neighborhood mascot in a way.”
