The tale of Casey Crazy-Cat
Once upon a time, we had a cat named Casey. He was larger than most small(ish) dogs, loved to drink water straight out of a tap, adored my oldest son and had a thing for sitting in cars. He also had horrible allergies and had to wear a cone on his head at various times, for various reasons. It was a BIG, dog-sized cone because he was soooo big.
Anyway, back to his car-sitting habits. One time he went to the airport with a van full of relatives visiting for Christmas. Other times he ran errands with me because he'd hopped into an open car window and sat in the back seat, sunning himself. By the time we noticed he was there, we were always too far from home to turn around.

THE HINDLEGS OF CASEY. He'd ridden on the TOP OF MY CAR all the way from the house. With his hood on!!!!!!!! When I braked to turn, he slid almost entirely off the back of my car. (The screeching noise? All of his claws fully extended, trying to hang on to the roof.) Only the back windshield wiper saved him from getting flung into the ditch.
No wonder that guy in the car ahead of me was staring. o.O I never laughed/cried so hard in my life. I was so relieved he hadn't been killed/amazed he made it that far...wearing a hood!
Apparently, others have had the same experience:
Only in this video, they weren't going 35 mph. Or wearing a gigantic hood over their heads.
