Car-E helps unpack

I slit the tape on the box, but before I could empty my art supplies, Car-E became interested in the contents of the box.

Because my cat was so involved, I grabbed my phone to video his actions.

My video stops before he could pull more from the box. Who knows what would attract him. A small plastic bag was being dragged out next. It was time to close the box.

Cat toys have been given to his feline for playtime. Playing with one of these may keep him busy for a minute, but Car-E prefers to make toys out of non-cat-type items.

Car-E takes a shower

It was time to fill the dog water bowl with filtered water. Car-E had to investigate.

Running water always catches his attention.

As he splashed at the stream of running water, I was splashed, too.

Just another day with my curious cat.

Car-E’s annual checkup

At first, I thought we’d miss my cat’s physical appointment. I couldn’t find Car-E, but after searching the house, I located him in a closet. He must have slipped in when I was hanging laundry.

It wasn’t too hard getting Car-E into his pet carrier, but he sure didn’t want to come out. At the vet’s office, he puffed himself up and sent a ball of his hair flying loose.

This was just the first handful of fur that came off of Car-E. In the end, there was five times this amount..

The checkup didn’t take long.

Two inoculations brought Car-E up to date and set for the next three years. They gave me a rabies tag for him. That will go in the drawer as Car-E refuses to wear a collar.

No problems were reported by Dr. Jamie. There was one thing noted. Car-E weighed 15 lbs, 9 oz. and that made him a bit heavy. I guess he takes after me.

Car-E cried when back in the carrier but was extremely happy when I let him free at home. My good kitty then went upstairs and hid under my bed. He stayed there for the next couple hours and only came out until it was time for supper.

Who is hiding?

Take care and watch where you sit.

You never know what will be popping out from under a sheet. That bump is not a pillow. It’s moving!

Car-E needed a little encouragement to leave his hiding place.

My cat’s adventures take him to many places. Sometimes he comes out of nowhere to attack my bare feet.

Warning! If Car-E likes you, he may show it by biting.

Car-E shows up for video

It’s a nothing-special kind of morning.

Raining outside so staying inside with Car-E.

Sometimes he wants to escape the house. Since my house is so close to the road, I don’t want him to do that. A flat cat is not a good pet.

When things are quiet, maybe too quiet, I wonder what Car-E is up to. Today he can go on the enclosed back porch. There he has a good view of the outside world. I just hope that is enough of nature for him. Keeping him safe is a main objective of mine.
