Bobby Goes for a Ride

On Saturday afternoon I was playing mancala with Reid and he suggested we take Bobby for a ride to see if he would like it.  As you may know, Bobby isn't your typical feline, as he often goes hiking and he also enjoys playing in the snow.

Reid, Bobby, and I piled into the car.  We drove very slowly along the road.  Bobby ran all over the car, looking out the windows.  He never started panting or yowling like some of my other cats have done in the past.  I think he was a little nervous about it, but not too terribly bothered. 

Probably, if we took Bobby for rides more often, he'd grow to enjoy it.  Because you know, taking your cat for a ride is a perfectly normal way to spend your Saturday afternoon, right?

Why, of course! Not. LOL That is a good idea to get him used to it since he's not getting upset by it. Some vets suggest getting cats used to traveling so it won't be so nerve racking when they have to go to the vet. You can leave the carrier out and every now and then put them in it, ride around a bit, then come home. Nothing bad happens that's related to traveling. Bobby is a handsome fellow--i see a resemblance to both Abbey and Connor. :-)

Its something new for Bobby and I am sure once he got used to the car ride, he will enjoy it. He might be the 1st one getting into the car the next time you open the car door.

Good Morning Lisa, I just love stories about Bobby. He is a cool cat! How funny that he did not react as most cats do to riding in a car. He is very unique! I imagine he would grow to love it in time.

Well, I take my dog for rides, so why not?

My cats howl like crazy. Of course, they're always headed to the vet.

Glad he enjoyed it. Our poor little girl Skye hates the car because she knows it goes to the vet or the groomer. We've never really had our dogs in the cars but I know wish we had done that with Skye.
