Rosie was wondering if you’ve ever spent the night in a tent as it was being pummeled by a deluge of rain.
Yes? No? Maybe so?
When she asked me this today, for the first time ever, I answered “yes!”
We went camping this weekend at Casini Ranch Family Campgrounds on the Russian River, and because Rosie is family, I invited her to come with us. For a second there, I thought she’d say yes because she’s currently into etymology, but she meowed a soft “No thank you,” and then mumbled something under her breath about not getting along with Gordy, the current Casini Camp Cat Mascot.
You know, I’m not surprised Rosie declined. She’s the type of cat who gets too caught up in her plots, so a lot of other cats assume she’s standoffish or disinterested, but really, she’s just working out science equations in her head.
Tabs, on the other hand, was your ultimate outdoorsy cat. He jumped at every opportunity to spend time in the woods camping, fishing and backpacking through the remote wilderness.
He started a camp, in fact, for up-and-coming kitten supermodels so they could be one with nature and use their experiences in their future modeling campaigns, and it’s still going strong. Several of his protégés are making names for themselves on social media.
