Cats are the most independent of pets but this furry feline takes the number one spot; navigating its way through the notoriously complicated Tokyo subway system. This king of the concrete jungle has been a regular commuter on the city's Seibu Ikebukuro Line since 2013.

His fellow patrons have been tweeting about his travel experiences, noting his very polite behavior, even moving over to make room for others to sit down.
