Note from Lee: My newly adopted sweet and saucy six month old kitten, Miss Georgia, would like to give her opinion on being a traveling kitty from time to time. Her blog posts will be titled “Georgia: On My Mind…” Hope you like this first one!
We pulled into a Texas State Park today and when I was released from the bathroom (where I stay when the RV’s on the road) there were four wild dogs right outside my door! Momma said they aren’t wild dogs, or wild hogs, but javelina! She had never seen them outside of a zoo, but there were three big ones and a smaller one right outside! They are from the peccary family, and are mammals that eat cactus and other plants and grubs. Adults can be 60# or more. I’m only 6# so they’re a little bit scary!
The javelin gang came closer but didn’t seem to notice me, I guess ‘cause they can’t see very well. I was shaking a bit when they came near but I’m a brave girl and kept my eyes on them until they wandered away.
While Momma was cooking my favorite salmon for us for dinner, the tree in our backyard was full of birds. I have never seen so many in my life! I don’t know the names of all these birds, but I heard they were mostly great-tailed grackles and red-winged blackbirds. We’re parked here for in exchange for Momma volunteering at the Roma Bluffs Birding Center. She said she’s never seen so many birds in her life either.
After dinner the water filter was filled up to drip, drip, drip all night, and I am so curious I had to investigate. Just when I had balanced on top of the Berkey filter, the darn thing tipped over! Two gallons of water spilled off the counter and onto the rug behind the love seat. Momma didn’t quite get mad but kept saying “You did not. You did not.” Yep I sure did! An hour later when most of the water was sopped up, and the wrapping paper and gift bags stowed back there were sorted out, I got a big hug and kiss.
I do love being a traveling kitty (except for being shut in the bathroom when we’re on the road). Everything else about it is really fun, though. If you’d like to read more about how I adopted my Momma and got my traveling name, click here. Meow for now!
