My Missed Adventure

Road trip missed adventure I really enjoy riding around in my stroller with the top open so I can look around. I even liked doing it at BlogPaws as long as there weren’t too many loud noises or a lot of woofies.

On Saturday afternoon, on our way back to the room to rest up before the Nose-to-Nose Awards banquet, I decided it was time to explore the joint on my own.

As we got off the elevator, I jumped out of … Continue reading

I Couldn’t Fool You — More Car Time

Christy sitting by carrier looking out the window - I Couldn't Fool You -- More Car Time

Christy close up in the car getting more car time in prep for her tripI teased you a little yesterday with my selfies but it really wasn’t that hard to guess where I was. Most of you figured out that I was getting more car time in preparation for my trip to the BlogPaws conference in June. Mom had errands and it was a beautiful, sunny day — purrfect for a family outing. Well, not the whole family.

As you may remember, I haven’t been that happy riding in the car. Mom thought maybe it was the carrier I didn’t like so she had decided to try the larger carrier … Continue reading

The Birth of an Adventure Cat

Enjoying the ride around Petco in the shopping cart

As you may know, mom will be attending her second BlogPaws conference in June. Last year, even though she had planned to take me, she ended up going by herself. My harness training just didn’t go as planned!

For this year’s conference, she really wants me to go with her so she had planned to work diligently on my harness training and getting me out in public. So far, the weather has put a damper on that. It has been raining almost steadily since Christmas. Mom says rain won’t make me melt but she wants my trips out to be pleasant.

On Monday, mom got out the treats and I ran through my tricks a couple of times, so far sit, high five and up. Then the harness went on. No problem. We do this often.

I followed mom around for a while … Continue reading

My First Car Ride in Over a Year

Christy in her carrier

Christy sleeping in leopard harness prepping for- My First Car Ride in Over a YearMom has really been trying to work with me to get me ready for the BlogPaws conference in June. I’ve been wearing my harness a lot but what I need to work on now is getting out of the house and around people. The problem is, it hasn’t stopped raining, and even snowing, in weeks. When we have one or two days without rain, mom has outdoor chores to do and then it starts raining again. Mom says we can’t complain though. After four years of drought, we need all the rain and snow we can get.

A couple of weeks ago, mom finally decided to take me out on a day … Continue reading

The Purple Harness

WW Flower PowerA while back, mom went to a big craft fair in Sacramento called The Harvest Festival. She went last year, too, and since we had just moved here, she got a few nice things for the house.

Well, this year, I thought maybe she’d bring something back for me. Remember when she went to her first cat show to see our pal, Summer? Do you remember what she brought back for me? A pooper scooper! Now, what kind of a gift is that for a cat? Isn’t that really just another gift for her? And what did she think made it all right? It is purple. Yes, I like purple — purple feathers, purple catnip mice, … Continue reading

Sunday Selfies: Treats Make Everything Better

Good morning friends. Can you see I have my harness on? Mom has been making me wear it a lot lately. She says I have to step up mySelfie in my harness (you can barely see it) - I got treats! game so that I’ll be ready for BlogPaws next June. I was so NOT ready for this past BlogPaws in Nashville.

I’m much more comfortable in my harness now. I don’t try to run and hide when I see it come out anymore because I know I will get treats after it is on. It still feels a little funny but I’m OK with it for the most part.

Mom says the next step is to go for some rides in the car. That should be easy peasy because I was such a Continue reading

5 Things to do Before Disaster Strikes — Cat Disaster Preparedness

Cats-in-crates - 5 Things to do Before Disaster Strikes -- Cat Disaster PreparednessSeptember was National Preparedness Month. We didn’t write about it at the time — we got to live it. When the Butte Fire broke out on the afternoon of September 10th, mom knew we might have to evacuate. By the next morning, it was becoming a real probability so she started getting some things together like important papers and the computers and camera equipment. Late that morning she learned that we would definitely be evacuated and things got into full swing. We then had about two hours before we would have to leave.

Mom had our carriers ready and handy. She closed us in the family room and put the carriers in there with the doors open. Of … Continue reading
