Pet Carriers

Peek-a-boo! Here I am in my little red tent. I just love love love my little red tent. So do EK and Candy. We love them so much, we have two of them! We play in them, we sleep in them, & we hide in them and jump out to pounce on each other. We have fun every way a kitty can have fun in our tents.

You’re probably wondering, “What does this have to do with pet carriers?” Well, I’ll tell you. Our magnificent little red tents are actually pet carriers. They have two zippers, so you can arrange them to open front, back or top. There are handles at the top for carrying. We love our tents so much we don’t even mind getting in them to go to the v-e-t. That’s right. Off to the v-e-t no muss, no fuss, no crying, no hiding. We just get in our tents and go.

We’ve read about a lot of furriends that have had to visit the v-e-t lately. They dread getting in the PTU (prisoner transport unit). They hide and run away and make it very difficult for their humans to get them in the PTU. Now, none of us, anipal or human,  likes going to the v-e-t. But sometimes you just have to go. So why not make the PTU fun?

Our tents are out all the time. We don’t have any warning about being off to the v-e-t since nothing new happens until we get there. Mom scoops us up, puts us in our tents, and off we go. Our first hint that this isn’t a new game is when she seatbelts the carrier into the car. And since I’ve had stroller outings involving the car, for all I know we’re going on an outing!

I think everyone should have a fun carrier. I think it would make going to the v-e-t or anywhere else you have to go much less stressful. Don’t forget to get nice fleecy beds to put in them. That makes them extra cozy and comfy!

My tent came from Target. I’ve never seen this type of carrier anywhere else. If any of you know of other fun carriers, post the link in the comments. There’s three of us and soon the two little ones will be too big to share and we’ll need a third carrier. It would be fun to have a new shape.

Sunday Musings

Happy Sunday everyone! Yesterday was Mom’s birthday, so we’ve been giving her extra cuddles this weekend.

Good news! Okey’s Promise passed it’s funding goal and @BZTAT can go forward with her project. Congratulations @BZTAT and Okey’s Promise!

Pals been asking about my Turbo Track cuz we got two of them arranged together. So here’s what it looks like. We love it! We all gather around it with Mom and play with it. We roll the balls to Mom and she rolls them back to us. It’s just so much fun.

Speaking of fun, here’s a picture of my favorite ball. It’s just about an inch or so big and it’s my favorite ball for playing fetch. Problem is, because it’s little it gets misplaced a lot and I’d like to have more of them. But Mom can’t find any in the stores and doesn’t remember where she bought this one. So if you see this ball anywhere, DM me on twitter (@pumpkinpuddy) and tell me where so Mom can buy it. EK likes it too, so we need lots of them for sharing.

We recently got a wonderful present from @Staffpurrson. It’s one of the Harry & David boxes that @Mulder_cat and @Scully_cat are so fond of. It came with all kinds of surprises in it.

Just look at all the fun in there! We got Temptations treats, and some Luna Tuna, some great toys, a nice fleecy pad and something we’ve never had before – crinkley paper! We’re just loving everything in this box. Or I should say EK & Candy are loving the box and everything in it. I can’t get near any of it cuz they’re toy hogs. At least I get treats & Luna Tuna. Nommy!

Look how funny EK is. There’s not room for both of them in the box so he just climbed right on top of Candy. But she doesn’t mind. They bonded at Duncan’s Place and just love each other so much that they climb on each other like this all the time.

Here’s more pictures of them cuddling. In fact, it’s hard to get pictures of them not together.

And here I am in all my floofyliciousness!

Aren’t I gorgeous?

Gotta go watch football with Mom now. She’s rooting for Green Bay and the Steelers today, but especially the Steelers. Happy Sunday everyone!

Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause

Ok folks. Pay attention cuz this is important. Anipals and their humans know about the link between violence against animals escalating into violence against people. Unfortunately, there’s too many people who don’t know about it or don’t really understand or believe it. Well, @BZTAT is working really hard to do something about it. The details are here: 
Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause
It’s really important that you act on this quickly. @BZTAT has to get pledges of $5,000 or no one’s pledges count. Unfortunately, she still needs almost $1,000 and has to raise it by noon EST on January 27. That’s a lot of money to raise in a really short amount of time. There’s an awful lot of us out there that know how important this is. Thousands of us in fact. If each of us gave just $1 we could make that goal. So get over to 
Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause
and donate today. Tell your furriends, your relatives, everyone you know.
