The suitcase came out of the closet. I growled. I never like that. It means Papa is going somewhere. “Stravyn we are going to visit Grandmaw” Papa said. “Picnics, car shows, farmers markets, boating.” Meow! So many appearances for me to make. I better start to pack. “Papa the cat rule is that if your standing on it it’s yours. I’m standing on the suitcase Papa let’s fill it up with my toys and my other essential items like chicken flavored toothpaste….hmmm and more toys!”
I don’t think we will have enough room for anything of yours Papa! Meow! Hehe.
With my packing done we go to a place called an airport to ride in a plane. Airports are very big with so many people walking and running and also standing and waiting. Humans are such funny creatures. We have to go through a place called Security! This is a very strange place. Papa had to get in a line with others humans. “Meow hello” I say. The humans around me reply “is that a cat!” I answer back, “meow, I am a BFF-Beautiful Fierce Feline!” I forget humans can’t see as well as cats and I am in a small case. Papa now has to take me out of the case so we can walk through security. “OMG look at that a cat.” I keep hearing.
Finally we board the plane. A plane is like a big car with wings. A man with a hat is looking at me. “Hi, I’m the pilot you sure are a beautiful cat is this your first flight?” He says. “Meow. No this is my 7th flight. Is this your first flight?” I meow back. He turns and disappears into a small room with lots of lights and buttons. I’d love to explore in there but papa says no. We go to our seats. “First class for you Stravyn.” papa says.
Lot’s of people are walking by my seat. Everybody looks tired and a little grumpy. Maybe because they need some naps? I see a little boy and girl holding their mom and dads hands. “Meow hello are you flying to see your Grandmaw?” I ask them. “Look mom a cat!” the girl yells. Her brother laughs. The grumpy looking people all start to smile. I hear. “What type of cat is that” “Can I take a picture of her?” “She is so pretty”. Papa smiles at everyone. Humans look so much better when they smile.
What’s that movement outside the window? “Papa I can see my luggage. Where are they taking it? Meow. Those are my toys. Meow.
What’s this…a entertainment system! Let’s see movies types…drama, comedy, kids. “Papa where is the Tigress Stravyn channel?”
Papa the movie is starting but I can’t hear it. Everyone is wearing earphones. Where are mine. Meow MEOW! “Stravyn cats don’t wear earphones.” Papa said. Meow! Really papa?! Let me try please.” I ask papa.
