I got to go to the pet shop! My human decided to bring me along since I was due for a bath. She decided that taking me out first and bathing me when I got home was the equivalent of her washing her hands. I’d say it was a little bit more than that, but whatever. I was really excited to go out. I was practically dancing when she pulled out the carrier.
The world is so different from the last time I was out. For one thing, I only got to be on the counter, and I wasn’t allowed to bury my face in the cat toys like normal.
I did take an intoxicating whiff of the dog chews, though! Another thing, we were the only ones in the store. The girl who checked us out wished she could have petted me… but she was allergic, on top of all the quarantine stuff!
I wonder if things will ever get back to normal! I hear that some humans think things will never be normal again.
The really cool thing about going to this particular pet shop is that it’s only a few blocks from my house, and it’s mostly residential streets. So sometimes my human lets me ride loose in the car, the way I’d prefer I always do! It’s the only time she doesn’t make me go back in the carrier.
