Tigress Stravyn® Takes an Airplane Flight

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.

Ready to take off! Yay rumble! Let’s go faster papa! Zoom! Yay we are flying.

What’s this…a entertainment system! Let’s see movies types…drama, comedy, kids. “Papa where is the Tigress Stravyn channel?”

Hmmm what’s this. Safety instructions.  I better read this.

The rumble of the engines are putting me to sleep.  They are quieter than papa snoring. Just a little bit hehe!

While I rest I’ll watch all the shapes of the clouds fly by.

That cloud looks like a duck, no a chicken. No I’m just hungry.

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.

Time for some lunch papa. Yuck no chicken!

With all the excitement I almost forgot to take a nap!

I’m trying but I can’t fall asleep.

Starting to land already.  This flight went by so fast.

Papa look I see a city.  We are going to land.  This is exciting papa!

Now to Grandmaws house. So sleepy. Maybe a short rest before I explore grandmaws house!

Tigress Stravyn® How To Help Your Human part 2

Adventure, animals, bengals, cute, funny, kittens, lol, tiger, training

While on a doggy/Bengal outing recently with my puppy friend Sophie her Human told my Papa a old story which goes like this;

A dog thinks. “The people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with food and a nice place to live and take care of me. They must be God’s”…While A cat thinks. “The humans I live with feed me, love me, provide me with food, a house, play with me and take care of me; I must be a God!”

As all Beautiful Fierce Felines know this is a truth that has never been debunked. But it is not all as glamorous as it seems. As with part 1 of this post titled How to Help Your Human this part 2 shows that we still have to take care of our humans and it is not an easy job.

As I was thinking about this Sophie my dog friend was trying to beat me in a race at the farmers market but I came out ahead by a whisker. “Hurry papa!” I meow.

I’ll list some examples below to show some helpful things we can do to help our humans so their time can be freed up to pamper us more.

When our Humans drive and we are not sleeping it is very important to help them with directions.  I know we love our humans but we always have to have a watchful eye. Even if you’re not paying attention when you hear the GPS say “recalculating!” It’s time to tell your Human MEOW! We are lost! And we are low on food!!!!!


Our humans like to take many pictures of us and we can help them by every once in a while hold still and look regal for them to take a funny picture.

Sometimes it’s had to look Regal in the many pictures our humans take. But just put up with it for a little bit and you can always reward them later with a nice love kiss with your teeth. “That finger that just took this picture is going to get a nice little bite !” I meow.


I have a Papa that takes me so many places. Another thing I like to do for my human when we are out is to make sure those funny drinks he orders are safe.The best way I like to do this is to either stick my nose in it or if you can’t stick your nose in it then make sure some fur flies into the drink.

We can also help are humans by teaching them new games. Here I’m teaching my papa how to play gin rummy. “I win papa.” I meow.  He says “no you didn’t”. I reply with a loud meow/growl “I WON!” And of course I was right I did win!

Always help your human when they shop. “Get the chicken seasoning papa” I meow.

Our humans will always bring us home new toys. Of course as any cat knows all we want are brand-new boxes, bags, or strings. Still we must pretend to show an interest in the toys they bring us so they will feel like their time and energy was spent well. “Yes I love it Papa. Yawn! Don’t you see me playing with it?” I meow.


When putting away items like paper towels or toilet paper organization is the key to fitting in as many items as you can in a small storage area. I like to help my papa out with this as much as I can. “It’s full papa no more room in here!” I meow.

Well all these helpful hints are making me quite tired while I take a nap please check below for my older blogs which offer for more helpful advice.  Meow!!!
