So, what exactly is this big, colorful thing standing here in the living room?
Oh no! It is my human’s suitcase! It is big. And not only is it colorful, it is kind of hideous. My human says this serves two purposes: 1) it is easy to find at baggage claim, and 2) no one else will take it because they won’t want to be seen with it.
As you can imagine, I do not like suitcases. And the peace sign on this one is mocking me because I do not feel very peaceful.
This suitcase is very colorful inside too. And it is not quite empty either.
Since my human has left town to go to the BlogHer conference, I guess I can’t complain too much. She will be talking to lots of other humans about my blog, and copies of both my books are for sale at the bookstore there! So I will rub up against this thing and give it my scent of approval. Also it will smell like me so if my human misses me, she can sniff it.
You are very thoughtful to rub your scent on the suitcase so your human can sniff it when she misses you. I’m sure no one will question why she’s constantly sniffing her luggage. We hope she has a great trip.
Our mommy’s suitcase comes with a Tortie inside it too! We hope your human has fun at the conference and sells lots of your books!

Oh Sparkle, that really is hideous, but it does look like you might be able to fit inside it….?
My Human is leaving me tomorrow also for a couple days. Hrrumph. I wouldn’t mind so much but she just got back on Monday! Really–couldn’t she wait a few weeks? And on World Cat Day, too.

When I was packing for Greece, back in high school, my cat decided to leave a little “gift” in it for me, necessitating my leaving ALL the clothes I had chosen for the trip and taking all the stuff I didn’t want to be seen dead in…
Alice Audrey says
Uh, Sparkle? Are you sure she’d going to want to sniff something that looks like that?
Most kind of you to scent the suitcase!
Sparkle, you are such a precious sweetheart=we’re sure your Mommy will appreciate you putting your scent on her suitcase so she can sniff you when she is lonely!…You and your sister are both gorgeous babies…Have a fun day, friends…xo…Calle, Halle, Sukki

I think that is a lovely looking bag, and yes very colorful. Definitely easy to spot at baggage claim!

Oh, Sparkle, you are an amazing kitty! You figure things out well. ‘Colorful’ means it doesn’t get stolen ot lost! Great post!
P.S. Sara Cat sends purrs. She is a little too busy grooming at the moment, but is blinking slowly at your image on the computer-screen!

We hate all suitcases CATegorically.
Mommy, however is jonesin’ somthing terrible for your Mom’s suitcase. She has strange tastes.
I really love the first photo particularly, and your description of the suitcase made me chuckle. I hope your human enjoys her conference and thanks for your own kind words on my pics! 🙂
Well, it is colorful bad news!
Snowball and Cheetoes says
Actuly,we kinda like it! We like colorful stuff! Expeshally red and purple! If you don’t like it,you can ship it here! ( and if you add some toys and cat nip and a purrsonalised tag that would be great!) =^..^= mew =^..^=

Your mom is pretty smart about it not being hard to miss.
My mom is leaving tomorrow for a couple of days of meetings in R.I. so the dreaded suitcase is out at my house, too.
The Island Cats says
Your human is right…that bag is hard to miss! Our mom ties a bright scarf on her bag so she can find it.
Excellent and very creative entry.
We’ve been looking for suitcases easy to recognize at baggage claim as well, but only found a deep red one. It helps a bit.
Beautiful Cats you have.
Greetings from Norway
What a good idea to have a wild looking suitcase. For sure, no one will take that one. Hope your mom has a good conference at Blog her. Have a great week end.
Hmm…I think the suitcase is quite nice. You could always use it a nice bed.
jams o donnell says
Now that is an utterly distinctive suitcase! I daresay she has never lost that one in a crowd of other cases!
What a BRIGHT suitcase! Momma’s is navy and it’s hard to find at baggage claim. Or so she says. . . . .

Our Mom has a red suitcase that she ties pawprint bags on.
We hope your Mom has a great time at BlogPaws. We hope the next one is closer to home so our Mom can go.

My mum has a black suitcase. It matches me perfectly.
Rumblemum thinks that’s the best suitcase ever, so I reckon you and I can commiserate about the weirdness of the humans. *sigh*
