The furry one
 
There's currently a thread about a woman who brings her cat on tour.Very interesting. So who else has brought along their furry buddy. I'm interested in hearing your story.
Thanks!!

Coward, but yea, I do seem to see a pattern here.

And to squeezy's question, I did see a fellow with an old deep wire handlebar basket in which he had placed a blanket and his kitty toured with him everywhere. He said they did take frequent stops and he made sure that he kept her well hydrated but I thought it was unusual, seeing how I've never owned a cat that would have been that cooperative.

Take your army to the Haunted Forest and bring me that girl and her dog. Do what you want with the others, but I want her alive and unharmed. They'll give you no trouble, I promise you that. I've sent a little insect on ahead to take the fight out of 'em. Ha-ha-ha-ha. Take special care of those ruby slippers. I want those most of all. Now fly, fly!

I had a Norwegian Forrest Cat that as a kitten I'd carry inside my jacket. He grew up and he loved to sit in the front of my jacket and look around at the scenery as I rode. He also loved swimming and I had a harness for him. The only thing was at home nobody could uter the word bicycle. If they did the cat would run to the bicycle and want to go for a ride.

I really miss him.

Cheers

A new definition for the term 'cat 3 rider' :)

I prefer companions who have an exoskeleton like the myriad of beetles and such who always tend to hitch a ride on my brightly-colored shirts. Although they make fine little friends I feel bad that, to them, it's a one-way trip...

I had a dog that would go with me faithfully back in the 90s. Simba was a rescue. I had a BOB trailer and he would run alongside the rail to trails and trot along side on the berm of the road and whenever a car was coming...he would jump on a wait til it passed. He also jumped on the back whenever I hit an uphill...yea, he was clever!
