Here is the LONG VERSION (as it has the videos) of this update, there is a shorter version I’m posting right after this (without the videos) for those people who don’t have great internet and while they might want to watch the videos, would rather avoid that much data all at once.
And on to the walk!
So, I did this yesterday, too, but didn’t think to grab the camera until I was outside, and then decided it might be a bad idea to get pictures or video because if Ryan saw Jezza going on a walk, he might decide he needed a trail kitten…but then the trail kitten would end up coming home… and we would have 5 cats in a very small house… along with me, and Ryan…and 2 larger than small dogs… We all get along, but even with just 4 cats, that’s plenty of vet costs to be going on with, and we are running out of comfortable spots for critters to chill…even cats who have some odd preferences for where they like to chill.
Anyway, today I took the dogs for a quick walk after I got home from work. And I took Jezza!! Wooo-hoo! He wore a cat collar (break-away in case he got loose and then got stuck, he wouldn’t strangle or hang so easily from the collar), and also a kitten harness, which on it’s smallest setting actually is barely small enough for him. And that was connected to a cord about 8 feet long, and that was connected to (but not shown in the pictures because I forgot to take it out of the little section of the pouch) to a small zip-style extenda leash thing. And there’s the black pouch thing, which was not designed to hold kittens (or even 1 kitten), it’s been hanging around the house being used for various things on rare occasion, and it originally came with Ryan’s white water kayaking helmet. It has a strap which fits nicely over my neck and one shoulder, and it has a zipper opening to the main large portion of the pouch, where the kitten goes in (bottom first) and his cute little head sticks out through the partially closed zipper area.
Anyway, here are the pictures and video!
Here are the first videos of us all doing our thing… I think I hit the record button a tad late, so I was starting to say “He likes it when I hold hold…” but some of it was cut off a bit.
And some more pictures.
And the last few pictures from that adventure!
Thanks for stopping in! Who says you can’t get dogs and cats to get along? And who says only joeys ride in pouches!! GoooooOOOOOOOO! Jezza!!! Jezza NEEDS a home! And a mommy or daddy or both, and maybe even kiddos who are good at not stepping on small crushable toes. He likes to pounce on things, and chase thingies that drag and slither.
