Elsie Venturing Outside.

Hi, I am Elsie the cat. I am on a grand adventure. I have traveled through 9 states already and am still going. I have seen things a kitty could never imagine.

I am riding in this small and comfortable house. It moves around. I am a little nervous about it moving but when it stops I get to do some things I love.

During the driving part I sleep under the blankets. I feel safest there. As you can tell, I haven’t really seen a lot of those states I have traveled through.

I am getting brave enough to go out on a leash. I know where the door is and am beginning to ask, politely of course, to go out when we camp for the night.

Here are things that scare me.

  • People I don’t know. That is just about everyone.
  • Janet inviting people to see her RT. They come inside and I hide.
  • Big animals. For 2 nights I saw horses and mules right outside the house. They scared me A Lot!!! I couldn’t take my eyes off them, though. When the mules talked I hid.
  • Dogs.
  • Sudden movements.
  • Big bodies of water. Janet takes me down to the edge of them but I run. Where the heck did all that water come from?

Hiding

 

 

Here are the things that make me more comfortable.

  • My stuffed toy. I like to carry it around.
  • Being fed.
  • Going outside when it is quiet. I was tracking a mouse about 2 weeks ago.
  • Knowing my new house is close by in case I get scared.

Soaking up the Rays

  • Laying in the front window and soaking up the rays. Vitamin D is good.
  • Getting a skritch when I want one.
  • Sleeping
  • Hanging out with Janet and trying to guess where we are going next.

I am now in North Carolina. For the past 4 nights I have been staying in a house. Janet’s friend Zoe offered us her house. I really like it. There is a giant screened in front porch and I can go out there and look around. No collar, no leash, just me. Sweet!!! I get to watch birds and try to stalk them. Darn that screen for being in the way. I am suspicious though that this is not going to last. I saw Janet spending time cleaning her RV yesterday. She doesn’t know I was peeking through the blinds.

I have become quite the traveling kitty. I am not fearless yet, but I am working on it.
