"Learning how to ride a bike can be hard, especially if you`re a cat.
Bike courier Rudi Salida of Philadelphia, rides around town with his tabby Mary Jane perched on his shoulder."
Bike couriers aren`t exactly admired or liked; they are a menace as they dart in and out of traffic, with little regard for their own lives.
But commuters find it difficult not to smile when they see bike messenger Rudi Salida make his appointed rounds with his cat, Mary Jane, precariously perched on his shoulder.
Bicycle couriers are free-spirited individuals, and I doubt that Salida named his feline Mary Jane " as a tribute to his grandmother. His cat`s name is probably a reference to his love for weed, and for his safety, and that of his cat, let`s hope he doesn`t ride under the influence.
Needless to say, Rudi`s videos have garnered tons of views. If you want to become an Internet star, feature a cat in your video.
