Day 695 ~ New Walking Partners

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

My Oldest Son has decided that he needs to get in some Exercise so if we walk a Little Earlier than we have been doing, he will walk with Hubby and I when we go to 7-11 every night. We have been walking Every Evening for 695 Evenings.

This is a Picture of Oldest Son (Geoff) on the Colorado River several years ago. He has not changed much.
We also have another Walking Companion - Smoky, one of the Stray Cats that "Adopted" Us. He followed us all the way to 7-11 one night and sat outside the Open Door waiting for us while we bought Coffee and Snacks. He is kind of skittish and doesn't trust People too much. He only recently started following us to the store. I really think he has been abused at some point, but he is really warming up to us. The clerk at 7-11 was afraid he would come inside but I think having so many people inside was enough to stop him. At any rate, he didn't cross the threshold even though the Door was Wide Open. My Camera died so I Googled an Image that looks remarkably like Smoky.

Our Other Adopted Stray Cat --Mooch -- has been with us for over 2 years. She does sometimes follow us to 7-11 also, but she is NOT afraid of anybody. She does her Best to get inside every time we open a door! She has even jumped in to my Car when I open the Door!! When she follows us, she usually waits in the dark behind the store while we are inside the store. Since we don't always walk the same Route, sometimes she will run ahead of us and wait at the corner to see which way we are going to turn.
Until now, I have NEVER even HEARD of a Cat who would follow you like a Puppy would!

    I'm a cat lover, too, and would prefer they follow me on walks, instead of dogs that come out of nowhere. I was walking at my son's recently, and all of a sudden, i heard panting behind me, and a dog (thankfully a friendly one) was right at my heels! I do carry a dog stick, tho.

    So cute! Our cat used to follow us as we walked through the neighborhood every evening, people would laugh and comment about her! I have never had a cat before or since that did that; it's nice to hear there are more dog/cats in the world! emoticon
