I still have no idea what I am, breed wise... But hobby wise I am officially a Canoe Cat! So far I've been on two canoe day trips: Rice Lake (Minnesota) and the St. Louis River (Minnesota, Wisconsin border river!). Mom and Dad bought me a life preserver. I wear it for them now and then, but I have a hard time getting in my covered litter box with it on, so I squirm out of it a lot. Mom slaps it back on me though, whenever I start looking out at the vegetation or wild life with that lusty drooly playful expression.
So far I've only jumped out of the canoe once. We were near some cattails (CATtails?!) and I was dangling over the side batting at stuff. Then I started climbing the edge. At first Mom thought I was being clumsy and helped me back in before I touched the water. Then she realized that I was jumping over the side intensionally, and let me.
The water was muddy muddy muddy. And it smelled like a swampy mess. Mom caught my leash as I swam away from the canoe. She pulled me back in by the handle on my harness. I was all glowing eyed and happy! She seemed surprised by that. (They have a cat that eats socks and veggies, and they're surprised that the Canoe Cat likes swimming?! Goof balls!)
When we got home, I ran up to Sparkman to show off my muddy dreads. He took one sniff, laid his ears back, and ran away... I guess I was really stinky cause Mom dragged me in the bathroom and dunked me in the bath tub. Noooooo! I like swimming, but I HATE bathes. Afterward I went all wet and still kinda smelly and bathed on the bed, on the hoomins' blankets. Ha! Take THAT Mom!
But the St. Louis River went even better! I thought about hopping out when I saw the lilly pads, but decided to stay inside the boat this time. It's sure fun dangling over the edge, feeling the breeze in my fur, sniffing the air, and watching for wildlife. Those duck things are fun to watch! But watch out for those cranes & herons... They're HUGE! I went in my litter box when I saw them.
Yup. I'm now all about canoeing. And chewing on my friend Sparkman... Gotta go find him and bite him. Purrs!
