AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, April 30 (UPI) -- A Dutch man created a custom "Kittymobile" from his bicycle and rode the vehicle with his two cats 300 miles from Amsterdam to London.
Thomas Vles, founder of Netherlands cat product company Poopy Cat, converted his bakfiets cargo bicycle into a Popemobile-inspired "Kittymobile" with an enclosed transparent compartment for his cats Mushi and Cheesy.
Vles rode the Kittymobile from Amsterdam to London, about 300 miles, as part of a promotion for Poopy Cat, which makes specially designed litterboxes and play structures for cats.
"I know how much the British love their animals and from the overwhelming response we had to our online videos and Kickstarter campaign, we knew that the UK had to be next for Poopy Cat," Vles said.
"Mushi and Cheesy are Poopy Cat's ambassadors," he said. "Not only are they the face of Poopy Cat, they also inspire our product development team, relieve us from stress in the office and test our products extensively. Mushi and Cheesy had to be there for the launch in London, however first class travel for cats is not yet available. The Kittymobile was the perfect solution, offering a spacious and personalized travel vessel!"
