According to my editorial calendar, Sunday, February 22 is “Walking the Cat Day.” I was confused by this, since I couldn’t find any reference to it anywhere online. Finally, my human remembered: February 22 is actually “Walking the DOG Day,” but she felt that was unfair, so she marked it down as “Walking the Cat Day.” So yeah, I went out for a walk a couple of days early. But first we had to stop at the pet store and do some shopping. My human said I did not need a litter box this big. I disagree — you can never be too rich or have too big of a litter box!
It’s amazing, how many different brands and types of litter there are! But to be honest, I think most of these companies are trying to impress humans more than the really important ones — us kitties!
I finally got fed up with being stuck in the litter section and took off. My human had no choice but to follow me.
I turned a corner and walked right down a private hallway. I didn’t care — as a kitty, I can do whatever I want.
My human said we were not supposed to be there, but I ignored her.
I was a little disappointed there was nobody in there. I was hoping for some pets and admiration.
On the way back, my human finally stopped and we went for a walk. She took me somewhere I’d never been before. Well, I had passed by it, but only in the car, so it didn’t look familiar.
We walked on both sides of the street and every time a car passed by and I didn’t try to bolt, she told me how good I was being. Sometimes several cars passed by at once. A few people slowed down to look at me and talk to my human.
My human says it is important I get a lot of practice being out and walking on my leash because I am going on a big adventure next month! It is going to be busy and noisy and I need to be prepared.
