Strolling down the Street One Day

Mom and I went for a stroll yesterday, a long stroll.  The sun was peeking through the clouds and there was just a spit of rain here and there.  So off we went down the street.  I was a little embarrassed, peeps were pointing and laughing at me….this is rude.  Mom told me to ignore them and enjoy the ride.  So I lay down and watched all the peeps and scenery go by.                                                                           aaassistedThis is Gateway Facility for Seniors where mom volunteers every Monday.  They have a nice bench mom relaxed on before we continued our travels.

Mom went strolling down a busy street where semi’s were rushing by me.  I was getting a little scared but we got off of the sidewalk, stopped and talked with a lady that had purple hair.  She had a shopping cart with the statement…”I can’t take it anymore.”  She was a sad lady.  Mom and I talked with her for a long time.  She told us her story and we listened.  By the time we left she looked a little more hopeful.

We strolled into the Youth Centre where dad volunteers and he was delighted to see us.  He proceeded to show us the new wheelchair lift they had gotten recently.  Mom and I just had to ride on it.                                                                     aacrsmliftAfter this amazing display where dad brought the bar down on mom’s head and I mewed in merriment, while mom was a little ticked, we went home.

Shoko was waiting for us on the fence and came dancing in the front door while mom picked up the mail.  There was mail for Shoko!  It was from Cat Scouts.  The parcel held a kerchief from the April quest Shoko was on.  Shoko wanted her new kerchief on like right now.

There you have it, Shoko modelling her kerchief.  Does she look like a proud dudette or what?                                                                      jack_o_lantern_canadiancats

    Shoks you look super great!!! why that peeps laughed at you Kali? They probably never saw a purr-ari like yours before :o) that was nice to listen to that lady…. the time we give to other peeps is no big effort for us, but it means so much to people who are sad or lonesome…hugs to you and the mama!!!

      A Purr-ari…that’s our stroller. A pink Purr-ari. MOL You’re right Easy. We never know the burden peeps are carrying and a few nice words or just to listen to them, might mean the difference between contentment and sadness.

      You are probably right mommakat. Peeps up here are not used to seeing kitties getting a stroll in their Furr-ari. So this is different to them. They’ll get used to seeing us the more we’re out and about. Shoko looks so official in her bandana.

    Kali I think your Mom brings a LOT of sunshine to a LOT of people who never see it – those at the Gateway Center, people on the street, and certainly people she doesn’t even TALK to but who see her smile. She’s a very special lady and she’s your MOM!!! YAY! I think you look cute in your stroller and I bet if anyone giggles at you it’s just they wish THEY could ride around in comfort like you and Shoko do. Shoko looks GRAND in her kerchief. I have mine in a special place where I keep my “scouting gear”.

    Love, Sammy

      Mom’s face is turning pink. You are so nice and thoughtful Pam and Sam. It only takes a second to smile and sometimes that is enough for the sun to peek through for others.
      Shoko’s bandana will go away with her scouting stuffs but she just got it and was so proud of being a Cat Scout she just had to show everyone.

    Shoko – you look a little ‘miffed’ with your scarf. Perhaps you think it should be a crown, much more appropriate for your ladyship.
    Kali – So nice that you and mom had a nice walk and brought joy to others, just by being ‘you.’

      I was *miffed* cause I wanted to go into the Lane and show Sludge, Cappy Tan and Oscar my cool bandana but mom said NO. It’s too muddy out there and I’ll get it dirty. She’s got a washing machine, doesn’t she? She could wash it. Geez!!
      Mom and Kali did get out and about. That’s when I decided the next time they go out, I’m going too.

      Your kitties will love it. At first it will be new and different and worth many a sniff. They will get used to it. Remember, treats are your friend and ours too. hehe
      Shoko thanks you for your comments about her and her bandana.

    That scarf is magical with all those colors, S! And that sounded like just about the best stroller walk ever, K. There’s nothing bad about making people laugh, so if your stroller did that, then mission accomplished. You might’ve brought them the only giggle of their day, so well done.

    Love and licks,

      I never thought of that but you could be quite right Cupcake. They may not have much to laugh at and if I gave them a chuckle….excellent. Thank you for helping me see things in a different light. Big kiss for my friend.

      Hi Bass..tu..,.no? Ok…I won’t say that word. Good idea to show them a mirror. They can take a picture of themselves instead of me. They actually did frighten me….they were loud. I’ll get mm to bring a hand mirror with us next time.
      Thanks you bass…tulips. haha

    That was very rude of people to laugh at you. I think they must have been jealous. It was very nice of you and your mum to talk to that sad lady. You must have made her feel better. Shoko looks lovely in her new kerchief.

    I am sorry people laughed, they are mean. I am glad you had a fun time despite them. I think it is great that your folks both do volunteer work. And Shoko looks fantastic in her Scouts neckerchief.

    I love your pink stroller, Kali. Will you let Shoko ride in it with you next time? I’m guessing the shopping cart lady was homeless? So many homeless here. 😦 It’s nice to hear your mom and dad both do volunteer work. I think our countries would fall apart without that. As far as the idiots laughing, remember the old adage, “Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.” Not that they were calling you names, but the same principle applies, sweet girl. Can you give me a big kittie purr? ❤

    Hey, Kali, how cool that you got to go out in the stroller and see so much fun stuff. Tell Shoko that she looks great in her kerchief. Wally got his, but he hasn’t had a chance to try it on yet.
