Most cats don't like being in a car? Huh?! What's not to like! The humans have nothing better to do but sit there and pet you! I personally kinda like it... So I just went on a little road trip with my humans! We went across the state to check in on my Auntie's & Uncle's House (It's doing fine, still on the market.), then to someplace called Itaska State Park where the Mississippi River starts.
Along the way, they told me the story of Perseus. And I learned something new: My Dad is ZEUS! My Mom's a mortal Danae, which is great too. But ZEUS?! Whoa! I better start calling him by his proper name, or he might smite me.
The Itaska place I wouldn't recommend for other car cats. I got out of the car and was standing there on my leash by a sign that said "800 feet to start of Mississippi River." And I was all set to go, when I saw the biggest dog ever. It had a thousand teeth and then I noticed screaming, hyper children with a hundred hands to pull cat tails!!! I freaked out. The car's not scary; but kids are TERRIFYING! I accidentally clawed up Mom while she was getting me in the car. But she and Zeus seemed to understand that that last 800 feet was just too much for me. So I stayed in the car with my water cup and munchies. Had a great time! They came back to find a purring Purrseus. I sniffed Zeus's feet all over (he'd walked in the headwaters), so I know just what it looks like. It's great, but too many kids.
All in all it was a great bonding experience for me and the new humans. When I got back inside last night, my new brothers sniffed me all over. No one hissed at me! They could smell Mom and Zeus all over me and just knew... I'm part of the family now!!!

What a fantastic road trip you had. I understand that children can be frightening for us kitties, personally, I have never seen one.
We're so happy that you're part of the family, and how fun that you get to go on road trips with your humans! Kids are the pits! I'm glad we have none of them around here!
Oh my goodness! Herds of screaming miniature humans??? *shudders* What a nightmare! I think even I might prefer a car under those circumstances. Your daddy is Zeus??
