Whenever I get asked why I am a cat person people always bring up that cats can't go on vacation with you or to the park with you. They are dead wrong and I tell them so. Many of my ‘cat friends' carry their cats everywhere with them. I used to take my cat with me every weekend to Sunday supper at my grandmother's house. He now lives there with her because my grandfather died recently and Gambit is there to help her not be lonely. There are cat carriers, cat leashes and harnesses, and you can even buy a cat backpack. I saw a cat on the train the last time I was traveling. He had a pink harness and a collar that said Killa and was probably about 8lbs. Cats are as fun and adventurous as they come, even my lazy babies.
Purina Pro Plan has declared June 15th National “Take Your Cat on an Adventure” Day. They are a fantastic brand that I have written about before and I know this is going to be such a fun day with tons of amazing cat pictures to find online (search #MyGreatCat). Well I am ready. I took Alexander Ovechcat out on his harness for the first time recently. He was pretty happy to explore once he realized that he was on the actual outside and no one was trying to catch him to put him back inside. I usually let him and his sister out on the porch which has no stairs and they love it. I have let my cat groups know about the adventure day and they are ready to all get together and do something. Purina Pro Plan kicked off this campaign off with a special Media day on May 23rd in Central Park, NYC, and featured a cat walk in the park as a demonstration that no matter where you live, you can find a great adventure for your cat. Adventure Cats, along with other select media, influencers, and Purina cat veterinarian/behaviorist attended.
I know I joke that my cats are lazy and I do get plenty of sleeping pictures of them but they play all the time. They race around on the porch, they have lots of toys they rip to shreds, they explore the massive basement we have, and they often play attack each other. I need a cat food that can keep up with them on their lazy days and on their adventures. Purina Pro Plan is a higher level formula that is perfect for keeping cats healthy and ready to play. Or sleep depending on the cat. I want my cats to have all the adventures they can have for as long as possible and I want them to be healthy doing it. I want to take them to the park festival and I know I am taking them with me to the annual pet event that happens in my city every summer. Tons of pets of all kinds will be there and my kitties will fit right in.
