We get the biggest kick out of Luna, who has turned out to be an excellent travel cat. If we are in a crowded area, she adapts by staying inside, but her preference is to spend a part of each day (especially the morning) outdoors. Here at the Port Townsend Elks, where we have a HUGE lawn next to Scoopy, she is in heaven.

For some reason, she has decided that this little stool makes a good shelter (she prefers shade to sun). Here she is, yawning a BIG one.

I hope she doesn't think this is a hiding place... as you can see, it really is NOT large enough to offer much protection.

We have seen many cats that walk on a leash (as does Luna, when absolutely necessary), but not many that can be let outside without restraint. She is generally happy with a sniffing circuit of Scoopy and Jules, a little exploration of her immediate surroundings, then a short rest under the stool or in her little "hut", the large soft-crate where she can play with her mousey or simply sit and watch the world go by.

What a perfect travel companion.


  1. Ohhhh, how neat!! I LOVE it when you update us on Luna!!! She is lucky to have you, too!!!!!

  2. We just started letting our cat, Jammer, out in our fenced enclosure and even when he's out of the fence, he doesn't stray too far. Wonder how he will adapt when he can't go outside every day, once we move on...

    Hugs, Sharon & Ron
