Cat Walking in Primrose Hill

After painting my front door last week, I had to leave it ajar while the paint dried.  The cats thought this was super exciting and spent the morning chasing each other up and down the stairs.  By the afternoon, I had cabin fever and had to get out of the flat but couldn’t leave the cats on their own in the communal hallway.  I used the excuse (not that I need one, really) to take the cats on a walk on Primrose Hill!  I packaged them up in their carry box and the three of us set off to the “posh end o’ town”. 

Once I had found a suitably quiet spot away from toddlers and puppies, I opened the doors to let the moggies mooch around.  Gimbles was out of the box like a cork out of a champers bottle.  It took all of my strength to keep the 3kg kitten from disappearing up into the leaves of the nearest tree.  Pecan, on the other hand, took a little coaxing.  She really just wanted to sit in the box and watch the world outside.

Whenever I take the cats out, I get the same reaction that Gemma Correll gets when she takes out Mr. Pickles: everyone I meet wants to say hello and talk about the cuties.  I’m so pleased that our nation is pro-pets and it’s perfectly acceptable to take your cats to coffee.  Well, it is in the posh end o’ town, anyway.  I’m not sure such crazy behaviour would be tolerated in the cool and gritty East End!  Maybe I’ll do an experiment in a coming post…

    Hi Laura! Thank you for visiting my blog and for commenting. I would love to know if you take your cats for a walk :) I’ve currently got mine in Newcastle – we’ve been staying in hotels and I’ve been ordering the cats chicken from the room service menu!
