I believe cats are actually an alien race that got tired of taking care of themselves, and perfected a means of subjecting another race to voluntary slavery. By simply being cute and cuddly, and purring occasionally, they have everything they need given to them. Plus they have their litter box cleaned.

While they were able to develop space travel thousands of years ago by folding the space/time continuum using nothing more than their superior intellect, they never mastered the mechanical skills necessary to open bags of kibble, and cans of soft food by themselves (no thumbs), so they located and conquered the human race.

And here were are, happily doing their bidding to this day.

That’s awesome Jeff. I was wondering if we’d be seeing a new cat buddy after Charlie passed on. I love Archie’s markings. Glad to see him getting used to the harness and leash.

I never thought it would come to this, but we are traveling with three cats currently. We had just one for the longest time, and then the boss decided she was going to “foster” kittens for the local humane society. She failed, miserably. So now we have three.

We just returned from a three week trip up the east coast all the way to Bar Harbor, ME. That was an experience. You do have to keep a close watch on cats, and ours are never allowed outside without a harness and leash, even at home. They are all good travelers and seem to have learned that they don’t leave the camper or the truck cab without being in our arms or on the leash.

Kahlua (brown fur) in the “window seat”. She’s about 20 years old, and is definitely the senior cat.
Selina (tortoise shell) sprawled on the table. She’s about 3.
Dixxie (calico) curled up on the seat. Two years old.

Sorry to not get back sooner. Archie is getting bigger fast. Feisty little bugger loves to bite, gently at least. His first trip looks like it's going to be the Fall Colors Caravan here in the PNW. He's got some "Special High Intensity Training" to go through before that time. He's very used to being handled and he's being exposed to lots of people in an effort that he not become a fraidy cat. I'll show more of his adventures before long. Take care...

I have six kittens. My grandkids caught them once and they disappeared for almost 3 weeks before showing up again.

This was this morning. I doubt that I'll ever catch one of them again. LOL

I imagine the kittens are feral by now.

They always have been. Only one of the males will let me pet him and its only for a few seconds.

I've been feeding them for years. There's 3 adult yellow and white ones and I've been feeding them twice a day with fresh water for 3 years maybe longer.

I call them my ingrates. LOL

Archie has such beautiful coloring! I love him! And thankfully your training includes a leash and harness. That is very important when traveling. Pets should never be out of the vehicle without being properly restrained. Kudos to you!

I found that using a cat scratch pad (with catnip) placed in new a abode made our cat immediately adapt to his new home. It somehow tells him "this is home".

The Cat went on his first camping trip this past week. We drove out to the Lost Coast area of King Range. Long drive. He did have problems with the carrier and ended up screaming and twisting in it. So he came out on his leash. At that point, he went to the back of the SUV and slept with the dogs for the rest of the way.

Didn't need to use the crate at all. Bat-dog was very good with him the entire time. At camp, he had his tether and came in and out of the camper as he liked. It let him check out the grass and logs, but not get into any of the burrows under the logs. He made a lot of friends around the camp. Whenever he came outside, he first checked to see if the two dogs across the way were out - if so, he hung out at the door. If not, he explored his campsite.

...We have only been camping twice since we lost him. The camper seems empty without him. DW is against another cat (even though she wanted our first cat back in 1995), because she is afraid of the impact it will have on her recently remodeled house. Makes me sad as I miss the companionship.


The iceberg melted and DW agreed to a new companion! Happy, happy, happy!

Introducing Jack!

He is compliments of my nephew's cat which snuck out over the summer and came home happy. He has had human interaction since as soon as his mother allowed it. He is very well adjusted and as well behaved as anyone could expect from a kitten. Car rides are no big deal, he just sits on the center armrest and hangs out. He is well on his way to learning his name, and 'kitty, kitty' is already locked in. A quick learner.

And this past weekend he got his first camping trip. We were at a Halloween party fundraiser on Saturday. Took the camper along as a changing room and for the crash after a night of indulgence. Jack was totally cool and made the camper his domicile.

Really happy to have a new companion back in our lives. [emoticon]

We lost our 19 year old to kidney disease this year. He traveled with us from the time he was three months old. He had been all over the U.S. and Mexico. He loved riding in the car, taking walks, being in the trailer even when it was just parked in the driveway. I'd let him in for a couple of hours and then go get him. Sometimes he didn't want to come out.

Cats are good traveling companions.
