What's going on.. Beer


It seems like life in this home is focused around this little one
the last two weeks,

kitten

When the kids are at home they have to play and cuddle with this cuty, playful a bit naughty Beer,

kitten

Now, there is a little problem comming up... what to do when we go camping?
We can bring our kitten to a friend but the kids insist on taking him along...

Does anyone have any experience with taking a cat camping?
Please let me know.

I'm so happy spring is here!
These grape hyacinths came out again,

Very cute kitten and very sweet little chair for him! Perhaps he will sit on it when no one is looking. Not sure about taking the kitten camping, but I'm not surprised the kids want him to come. Who would want to miss out on that bundle of naughtiness?

My in-laws take their cat in the caravan all the time.... I wouldn't take a cat tent camping though. I think that would be a recipe for disaster!

Dat is nou de reden dat wij geen kat hebben! Wij gaan ook elk weekend naar de camping en het was vroeger altijd zo'n gedoe om die kat steeds mee te nemen.
Ik kan me nog herrineren dat de kat van ons er altijd vandoor ging op het moment dat wij naar huis wouden gaan. Het was een echte buitenkat dus hij was nooit binnen en had het op de camping natuurlijk zo naar z'n zin met al die muizen en andere lekkere hapjes!

Het is wel een schatje trouwens, en als ik dat zo zie wil ik toch wel erg graag een kat...
Mooi stoeltje heeft je zoon ook gemaakt! Een vakman in de dop!!!

Your little Beer is so cute! I'm glad your family has been enjoying the nice weather--it has been sunny here for a few days, too.

Cute, cute kitten! I don't think I would take the kitten camping. I would be afraid it would run off and be a wild animal's dinner. I think taking it to a friend's house is a much better idea.

Beer is just so cute it would break my heart to leave him while going on holiday. The advantage of kittens is that you can do their education. So why not try the leash while on camping (to make sure he doesn't run away) ? We did this with our little Bonbon during his first walks in the garden. He didn't wind at all !

What a cutie indeed:) Good luck with the camping trip-a leash is a good idea and a sleeping container is good too that you can close up-my sister has one and her cat loves it and goes in their often just to laze around

Valentina said...

Your Kitty is simply adorable! I wonder if you could take him along in a kennel, so he will have a safe place to sleep?
Please let us know! And good luck!

What a adorable little guy! How did he come to have the name Beer? I don't have a cat, so sorry no advice for camping. Have fun.
Blessings!

ooooooooh......
wat een schatje..
Ik zou 'm niet meenemen, breng hem maar hier :-)
En dat stoeltje, mijn jongste zat vol bewondering mee te kijken..
oh, mooie stoel, zei hij , zo knap gedaan!

RosaMaría said...

what a lovely kitten!!! maybe the camping is not a good idea for this little one, it can be run away and loosing... .. but if the childs are crying use a leash and a kenner while on camping would be a save idea...

have fun!!

What a great carpenter you have there, nice chair!! The kitten is adorable...not sure about camping, but last time I was in Holland, I didn't hear of any coyotes who could steal camping kittens, so it might be ok. Good luck!

Aahh I can see why Beer is such a hit. We have grape hyancinths too - aren't they just gorgeous. That chair is fantastic - what a great creation!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

That's a great chair! I can't imagine taking a kitten camping. But we camp in a tent. A camper might be a different story...

Have fun!

what an adorable kitten! I have taken a cat camping a long time ago when we had a trailer. Tent camping I'm not sure about. We found a cat when we were camping some summers ago. She came to our campsite for hotdogs and other people food. I bought some catfood for her. One day she let me pick her up. I noticed that her nipples were engorged with milk. I put her down and told her to take us to her kittens. And she did just that - in a direct bee line through the forest and fields to a small bush where her kittens were hidden. There were five of them! We asked the ranger what we should do with them. He told us that people who bring cats to the campsites are not thinking about their cat's welfare. Cats escape and become wild. They kill a lot of the wildlife, like birds and squirrels and mice, especially in the winter and usually they starve to death at that time. He told us to take her and her litter home and try to find homes for them. Which we did. Sorry this is such a long comment. Just wanted to present a point of view from the other side.

My parents used to take our cat camping all the time when we were little! We would just take a little leash and travel carrier for her to sleep in. We would take her for walks and she would climb on the tree trunks.

Such as cutie that Sweet little Beer.

I wholeheartedly advice you to leave Beer at home and have some kind friend or neighbour look after him. Cats feel best at home.

We once had a disaster with one of our cats when we took him to the Summercottage of my grandparents. He already got wild in the car, escaped from his lease and after we caught him and took him home, he had become a scaredy cat.

When you really would like to take him out, he first needs to be trained to walk with a lease, to get used to car rides and to all the traffic noises.

Good luck!!
