Our growing kitten, Picnic Jeeves, is now almost 5 months old, happy and healthy... So I think it's time to start bike training! We have taken her around the carpark on the bike before and she had no issues with it, so it's time to give it a serious go. I looked on the net (always a valuable but somewhat dubious source of info) for encouragement and thought I would share the findings with you.
Picnic Jeeves has been playing in our bike baskets since we brought her home.
Look how chilled this cat is.
Best use of a helmet ever!
Ummm, not like this...
Just had to put this one up!

So we tried it. Picnic Jeeves is happy to chill out in any basket so we had no problems settling her in. She also loves going for walks on the harness so was happy to be strapped in, snuggly on top of her blanket. If she was to meow or be distressed in anyway we would not be continuing. But again our little cat surprised us. She peered out with her big eyes, and took it all in.
She even started to play! So we headed out onto the street (very quiet streets - no cars) and pedalled slowly around. Picnic Jeeves liked it, she looked around, checking out noises and was comfy and content.
What a superstar cat!! And we are totally amazed that she likes bike riding too!!
Pish tosh xx
