I caught Andy checking out the carrier by the recliner. He went in briefly…
…then came back out. I guess it would make a good kitty den if it meets his approval. I’ll leave the door open, in case.
Friday: Sunny, with a high near 48 F./8.8 C. Breezy, with a northwest wind 15 mph/ 24.1 kph to 25 mph/ 40.2 kph, with gusts as high as 35 mph/56.3 kph. That’s the weather report for my area today. Earlier this week, 18-wheelers were being blown off the road! I didn’t feel like my VW Golf Sportwagen had a chance, but, then, I didn’t spend much time out on the highways.
Dolly, this is the carrier I have for Andy. There are numerous carriers with wheels available on line, and I highly recommend any carrier that can be pulled instead of carried.
Interesting weather you are having, Doug.
Just for the sake of my curiosity, whose carrier is it, Andy’s or his late brother’s?
When I bought that one, it was for both kitties. Of course, once they grew, I had to get a larger one that both could go in to their appointments. I rarely use those by the recliner, and actually have a new one with wheels that is suitable for one kitty boy. Andy seems to like it better, too.
That’s an idea, thank you. I should look into a carrier on wheels, rather than hanging it on my shoulder.
I’ve added a photo above showing the specific carrier I have for Andy.
A photo above where?
Scroll up from your comment asking “where?” till you get to the bottom on the main body of the blog post. The photo and details, with a message specifically meant for you appear.
Got it – thank you so very much for a great idea and detailed information.
You are welcome.
Adorable, lol, thanks for sharing!
Suzy has a carrier under a table that she loves to sleep in.
I let my kitty boys have the chance to use the carriers as dens on the hope they would be happier when I needed to take them places. In one instance, I couldn’t find the late Dougy when it was time to take both kitty boys to the groomers. I took Andy and came back home to look for Dougy. FI looked everywhere for close to an hour, then, on a hunch, I looked in the lower carrier by the recliner. Sue enough, Dougy was hiding there! I slammed the door shut and managed to get him to the grooming appointment just before Andy was through with his session!
We’ve had one subfreezing morning at 30 degrees F. Today is sunny and warm, thermometer on the porch says 75! it was 37 degrees at dawn.
We were about the same here. I had light frost on my car windows for the first time this season. Ugh!
I was told cars with a “low profile” do better in high winds than SUVs and trucks with a high clearance. That’s not to say I would want to take my Civic out for a drive on the freeway while hurricane-force winds are blowing! We had 40 mph winds in my area two days ago: a friend who had to get to an appointment with a specialist got hit in the face by a loose palm frond, which is spiky and painful. Stay safe, Doug and Andy!
I fought the wind getting out of my car. I kept banging it against my leg when I stuck it out.
The wind can do so much damage as it does down here recently, Doug. It’s 50F this morning. Brr! I hope Andy will use the crate as a new den. Cover it up fully with a big towel, that may help.
I have a covered litterbox that I bought thinking it wads a carrier. Andy has used that one for kitty purposes (naps).
This is some awesome thinking. I love this! Wonderful ideas!💓
Perhaps in seeing the carrier Andy is dreaming to a trip with you into your WW Golf , Doug ? 🙂
He is an unhappy traveler, unfortunately, though he tolerates short trips. The late Dougy absolutely hated travel, and whined the whole time the car was in motion.
be careful on the road… we always had the feeling to be in in the crib of dorothy when we had stromy weather and used our small elephant skate…
Yes, that pretty much describes the risk in blustery weather! LOL!
That is cold
…especially with the wind. It’s nasty!
