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!!

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.

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

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!
