Henry's 1st Day As A Dog Sitter

 

During yesterday's storm I only had two visits to go to so I decided to take our fearless tabby cat, Henry, along for the ride. Henry has been accustomed to car rides since he was a kitten but he's never ridden in the car with a dog (not even with his coon hound sister, Daisy) so I was pleasantly surprised that Jesse's presence in the car didn't phase Henry one bit!


And even though Henry is quite an adventurous kitty I was surprised that he took to the snow in stride. The depth of the snow and the eager-to-befriend foxhound behind him did not stop him from getting to his next destination,


Penny's yard! And what a funny thing it was to see Henry's face when he realized that dogs do come in small packages and that



Penny was more than willing to join a foxhound and a tabby cat in a game of Follow The Leader!

  7. I can hardly get my kitty off the top of the fridge, much less walk out in the snow with a bunch of dogs. You are one special kitty, Henry!!

    I would like to inform you that I have a present for you at my blog. I am humble as I come here and offer you the award that was given to me today. You are a very special person and this is just a little way for me to express what I do think.

  12. Thank you, furends, for telling me that my furst day as a dog sitter was worth meowing about. I know a lot of my kitty blogger buds are surprised that I am not afraid to ride in the car, play with dogs, and stand in the deep snow but it's all because my mom is a "Tiger Mom" (heeeheeee) and she let me explore everything that I thought was interesting and she didn't stop me from meeting dogs while I was growing up in Florida. It's a good thing she let me spread my paws or else I'd be a scaredy cat! I hope you know that I am not totally crazy about dogs but if they are around me I don't mind showing them how to play "Follow the Leader" or other fun games like that!
    Soooo my advice to all of kitties out there who think they can't explore the white stuff...just get out there and put your paws down....I know you can do it if you just spread your paws!

  13. Goodness Henry, Mom tried to make me walk on a leash but I didn't like it one little bit. I like to go explore on my own terms not even if she follows me with the leash.

  16. That's right, Cooper and Lola! I am going to EXPECT to dog sit every single day from now on! It is so much better to be out of the house than in the house, fur sure!
    xoxo...Henry
