Taking a cat for a hike
I take my dogs to the park a few times a week and I was there yesterday and a man was walking his cat. I think it may have been the funniest/coolest thing I have seen in a long time.
I don't live around mountains, but they are some hills and valleys in the park that I run at, so they can be a litte difficult at times. I am running and I look up and see what I think is a small dog walking towards us. I shorten my dogs leash and keep running. As I get closer I realize it is a cat! He was just trotting along like it was no big deal. I stopped and talked to the man about it. He said he was had the cat on a harness since he was about 6 weeks old, so he is pretty comfy with it. It was funny because even my dogs seemed to think it was crazy. They just sat there starring at this cat. My dogs are good with cats, but they didn't even try to sniff him- they just sat there and starred. I know that people walk their cats- I am trying to get my cat used to it, but never have I seen a cat hiking in the woods.
I just thought it was a cute story, so I would share.
