Shop cat

The other night, Hubby and I were bored, so I suggested we go for a drive, something I have loved doing since I was a little girl.  We decided to take Dexter with us, since he loves riding in the car.  From the moment we set off, he was one happy pup.  While we drive slow in town, he hangs his head out the window, taking in all the sites.  Once we were on the highway though, he watched from the safety of Mommy's lap.  (I once read how bad it is to let your dog hang his head out of the window when going more than like 10 miles per hour, because debris can hit them, and injure their eyes and face.)

Finally, we got on to more back roads, and ended up in a little town called Vandergrift.  We drove around, looking at the little shops, and Hubby showed me where a cute little used book store was.  As we were driving around, we drove past this store, obviously closed, with all these little knick knacks and things in the window.  Things that included a cat.

At first, we thought nothing of it, figuring it was a fake cat.  But then, I swore I saw the cat move.  I insisted Hubby pull over, so that I could investigate.  I took Dexter with me, you know, for protection.

We got a little closer, and still could not be sure.

Finally, Dex and I got right up to the window, and realized, she was in fact, a real kitty!
Poor thing, she must have been so bored and lonely.  Perhaps she was part of the security system :)

I luvs to go for rides in the car too but I has to stay in the back seat and have my safety harness on. The shop kitty looks very pretty, maybe the kitty had a furiend with him that was too shy to sits in the window, I hopes so.

Woofs and Licks,

I see cats in the shops of downtown Mobile a lot too. And when N&B see cats they break into fits of crazy barking.
