Gemma’s first camping trip didn’t start out at all well while we were packing the van. This was to be our new kitten Gemma’s first trip away in the caravan so we have been getting her used to wearing the little pink harness. No problem there – until we attached the lead, she didn’t like that one little bit. So to keep her safely out of the way while we were in and out the door carrying food and clothing to the van, we popped her into the the carry cage. You can imagine our surprise when we found that she had escaped, how on earth did she get out? As it turned out one of the metal wires was missing, and she must have squeezed through popping two others out of place. Who would have thought that such a little kitten could be so determined? Looks like we now need to purchase a new carry cage.
That’s one determined kitten to escape
Gemma tolerates car travel very well, and once safely on site, she was introduced to the caravan. So many nooks and crannies to explore and sniff, but she settled down very well. Basking in the afternoon sun which was streaming through the front window kept her happy and content.
With Gemma safely tucked up asleep inside the van I sat outside enjoying our mild winter weather and did some more stitching on one of my New Zealand botanical stitchery blocks.
A little stitching time
Taking a lively kitten away in the caravan will be a steep learning curve for all of us. But she is young enough to learn a few rules, we expect, and we look forward to many happy trips away.
