Mom only caught and tested two cars today, her back kinda hurt. But we're making progress. Toyota RAV4, oh yeah. Like.
Nissan Rogue, hmmm, maybe.
On the way back from the dealer, on I-80, something funny happened. Mom was driving along and suddenly all the displays that show the speed and how much fuel you have and stuff, went black. She could just very faintly make out how fast she was going. Normally our Vibe's display is red on black. Mom thought, oh well, if she can't see how fast she's going she'll just eyeball it. I wonder when the Police stops her, if they accept the argument: hey Officer, sorry, i can't see how fast I'm going. Not my fault if I was going too fast.
When Mom was back home she fiddled with the dial and the display came back on. Thank catness. Mom wasn't going to get that fixed but it's just safer if you can see how fast you're going.
Now Mom talks alot about fog lights and moonroof (huh, the moon doesn't have a roof) I've been thinking about the important extras that this new car needs to have:
a cat bed - why are there no cat beds in cars? We would not need to sit in pet carriers if there was only a comfortable cat bed. That's why we scream and holler in our carriers.
a velvet blanket to knead - a friend of mine has a velvet blanket and he says velvet is the best
an automatic kibble dispenser and water bowl holder - Mom, you snack in the car, so why should we go hungry?
a litter robot for when we need to go. You don't want to make a pit stop every time a cat needs to go, right?
the back of the drivers seat should have a surface for scratching. Sisal, carpet or cardboard. Why hasn't anybody thought of that? Turn the back of the seat into a scratching post.
Nip cigars and nip bananas need to be kept in the glove box, yeah.
What other extras do you think we'll need?
A DVD player for kitty videos, and a little grow light for growing fresh catnip and grass...
We still think your Mom would love the Honda Fit, or the cute Toyota Yaris or whatever that little car is called, now...
Mol. We definitely need an upgrade in our car too! Some of these ideas are genius, hehe. Grandma says her car's speedometer always stopped working too, she had to get it fixed a few times. If you have a GPS, Mom says she thinks there is a speed thing-a-majig on it as well.
I don't think your Mom would like that scratching post idea on the back of her seat, Mol.
Our ex-car had plate holders as well as glass/bottle holders. butt purrsent car haz ownly haz glass/bottle holders. And weez haz a DVD pawlayer to watch kitty videos and a hooge rear window-side bunks to haz a li'l nappies/watch birdies(efurry 4 seat cars haz them, isn't it??), hooge glasses to watch outside and switches to open the windows(meez can open the windows by myshelf), a little pawlace under the seats whez kitties can hides when they beez scared and air conditioners to save the kitties from heat exhaustion. Butt weez dont haz a GPS. Weez haz our mean-spirited-dryfur whoz beez the GPS himself and Baba also beez the GPS when the dryfur doesn't knoz sumthing!! Heez seem to knoz a lot more pawlaces of BD than the mean-spirited-dryfur.
Good idea Meezers and Tao. We need a DVD to watch burdie and squirrel movie. Fish movies too. Tao, you can open the windows by yourself? Wow, that sounds dangerous. Don't fall out little bro. We do have air conditioner, have to in Iowa. It gets hot in the summer. We don't have GPS.
Yes, bro. That beez souper dangerous!! Meez might jump out and get smashed under cars. Sos whenefur meez stands beside the windows to lookies out, Sissy poots her palm ofur the switch to cofur it!!
These ish all furry good ideas, but I finks it would alsho be furry kewl of the new car can be programmed to go to Petco or Petsmart at leasht once a week automatically, so yew and yer sisfur can always have the freshest treats and the newest toys!
It should also be programmed so that it never drives to the White Coats or the groomers. =)
