Have Fur, Will Travel

Kitten Thunder was helping me this evening. I pulled a suitcase out of the closet. One cat stayed on top of the other suitcase in the closet. The other immediately packed himself. Then…suitcase thunder.

Imagine, if you will, 14 pound of grey furry in a midsize suitcase that is halfway zipped. We start with normal kitten cuteness. Head out of the suitcase. Pull back in. Out. In. One paw in. Head out.

Then Obi was on top of the suitcase, unaware of his brother. The suitcase grew an arm that grabbed his tail. Obi moved two feet straight up, then half a foot over in one startled move. Thunder was ON.

Twenty-five pound of furry in the suitcase. Brown head out. Grey arm out. Brown head in. Grey head out. Brown tail. Three arms. One arm. Heads.

Suitcase falls over.

Grey kitten exits and we’re back to one. Head out of the suitcase. Pull back in. Out. In. One paw in. Head out.
