I promised I'd come back to show you my latest purchase. This is crazy catlady gear at it's finest! My five furkids are strictly inside cats, since two of them are declawed and we live out in a rural area where housecats are a delicacy on the menu at the coyote cafe. They love to watch what's happening outside from the cat trees and perches in our windows, and I know they love the smells of Spring as much as I do! So I invested in this pet stroller to take them out on the deck and for walks at the park in town. I got it from Amazon.com and was amazed at how many models they had available. It must a popular idea for city folks too! This one is light, yet very well made and sturdy and folds up for easy transport and storage. The soft cushion in the bottom comes out for easy washing too.
This is Sophie in the picture above, she loves catbeds and boxes and settled right in. Each of the furkids has had a little time outside last night and today, and they are loving it. Well, except for Stormy, who just turned 16. He's always been a scaredy cat and he's not so sure. He didn't cry to get out or come back in the house, he just had a lot to say about this newfangled box, in very definite meow tones! :-)
In the picture below he is checking out the rear window. He doesn't look exactly thrilled, does he? But I think he'll grow to like it as he gets used to it. He has walked out onto the deck once or twice in the past, so I know he's curious about what's out there!
Gracie and Tiggy were born in our house last Spring (their Mama was a rescued alley cat), and this was their first trip outside... it was fun to watch them so alert and checking out everything!
Chloe was previously my daughter's cat and loved roaming outside the apartment complex where she lived. She'd probably rather be free to go hunting, but enjoyed the night air just the same. I think I'll be in good company from now on when I'm blogging from the deck!
So yes, call me a crazy catlady, but this keeps my furkids safe from getting lost or hurt, and from picking up fleas or diseases. I really think it's pretty cute, and so does the Papa Bear, who even agreed to accompany on trips to the park (though he didn't specify how far behind me he intended to walk)! I can't wait to see the faces of people who peek into my stroller expecting to see a cute baby... hey, they are cute! :-)
