This morning, I walked the cat.

That’s right, you read correctly.

Actually I haven’t done that in a very long time. This sort of thing would usually happen around summer time when it’s still warm out. The cat would follow us around the neighborhood when we, my husband and I or even just one of us, would take Josie for a walk.

He would meow during the whole trip; we would sometimes, especially around busier areas, slow down and wait for him catch up otherwise we would just keep on trekking. We would never worry whether he would get lost or not, he always seemed to be able to find his way back home.

During our walk this morning with Caillee, Josie, and the cat, I thought about why today the cat following us struck me as so strange. He has followed usin the past, but not lately. Why was that?

Caillee - that must be the change. Caillee arrived at our home about two summers ago and I do believe that is most likely when the cat stopped following us around for walks. I don’t think it is because he dislikes Caillee; I think Caillee wears him out. He might finally get some rest when she is out…. That must be it.
