...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]

Jack is adorable!!!

Check out yellowdogdesigns.com for harnesses and leashes. I'm not affiliated with them. They have a ton of patterns and colors. I got the 3/8" wide 5 ft leashes and the Roman H harness for The Cat and The Cat in Training.

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 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.


I was very fond of Charlie. Doubt I'll ever have a pet like him again. Archie is still developing socially. He will earn his own place in our hearts.

They really, really do. 'Oscar' (going waaaay back) has a memorial plaque under the tree... "He left paw prints all over our hearts".

Jack has two big paw prints to fill. He is well on his way, and I look forward to sharing the journey. I took him for a walk in the woods today and we stopped by the tree. It is strange, but somehow I think he knew it.

NRALIFR - is getting her drunk the only way she'll visit the hanging toilet box? [emoticon]

[emoticon] They’d all bite you if they heard you call their favorite perch a toilet! They compete for that seat. [emoticon]

Selina only sniffs my beer. She’s giving me her “smack myself” expression after I agreed with her that the Stella I just drank was indeed a (shudder) light beer. “I told you “Legere” means “light” in French, you big dummy!”, she said.

Your video reminds me of that saying, "It's like herding cats."
