Many people think cats aren't brave enough to get outside...
Though I act bold in the house, I am kind of a scaredy-cat.
Mom and Dad wanted to take me for a car ride. It's something they want to get me used to. They like to travel and want me to enjoy riding around too. Mom put down the back seats of her car and put my travel crate inside. It has a comfy bed inside of it. At first, I was really nervous. The movement and the noise of the car freaked me out. But then I got used to it and took a nap.
Then, they decided to take me to Petco. You know what they say: sink or swim.
They bought a new harness. It's green and just my size. I felt a bit uncomfortable with it but I got used to it. Daddy carried me inside and mommy got my treats. At first i tried to escape and gave Dad quite a few scratches, but nothing bad. I didn't do it on purpose. When we got to the cat section, they put me down and I got comfortable pretty fast to Mom and Dad's surprise. I played on some of the kitty condos and with a new toy. Mom ended up buying it for me because I liked it. It is a pink feather toy. Mom decided to get me to be more comfortable with treats. She opened up a pack right there and they were sooooo good. Free range chicken treats! She bought some more litter too! It was a total me day.
Mom and Dad are so proud of me for my behavior today. I was pretty brave after a little bit. And I got good stuff.
When I got home I played with my new toy. Mom took a video (she'll put it on youtube later:D) It has feathers on it and jingle balls. I pretend it's a bird and drag it all around. Mom and Dad won't leave it out for me to play with unsupervised because the feathers do rip out when I pull too hard. They don't want me to choke!
Mom got me catnip bubbles but I'm not interested yet. Maybe when I get a little older they will be cooler to play with.

WOW, Liam, you is furry BRAVE. I don' like to go for car rides. I never been to Petco.
Sometimes Jen takes me in my carrier to get my nails done and I yells the whole time.
LOL Thanks! Try to be brave next time! It's okay though, I yell when I'm in the bath tub... :P REALLY REALLY LOUD too.
