The other day, Kevin and I took my kitten Venus for a little hike. We feel bad that she is stuck in a small apartment and we wanted her to get some fresh air. Hopefully next year we will be able to have access to a yard or at least more space. However until then, we have to be creative.
We leashed Venus up, put her in her carrier, and drove her to Fonthill. From there, we carried her to the woods and then safely let her out of her carrier while holding onto the leash. She wore a pink harness to keep her secure.
Venus did much better than we thought. We could easily tell that she loved being outside, surrounded by wildlife and all the different scents for her to smell. At times it was hard to keep her on the trail, but overall she didn’t have any issues. By the end of the walk she was panting. We had waited until evening to walk her but it was still very hot outside.
Finally, we brought her back home (she hates the car). She gobbled down her dinner and then slept like a rock for the rest of the night!
