Cupcake’s outing on Saturday had some ups and downs. It started out well.
Her favorite coffee shop patio was open again after weeks of being closed due to painting. And she got some whipped cream from her favorite baristas.
Then the painters arrived. At first, they were doing quiet painting things. Then the big noises started.
You can see the high lift behind Cupcake in the photo above. When it suddenly started beeping and moving, Cupcake was not happy at all. The party was over.
To try to end her outing on a positive note, we decided to do one of her favorite things: shopping.
We visited the big box pet store to see some her friends who work there. She also saw her bird friends who live there, at least until they find forever bird homes.
No, Cupcake, we can’t be a forever bird home.
Cupcake sprawled on top of the cat trees and let one of the passing customers play with her while I explained how Cupcake’s harness fits.
She also tested out some of the feather toys, but she can’t decide which is her favorite. She said she wants to think about it and try again next time we visit.
This wasn’t our most successful outing, but any outing that ends with grabbing feathers is one Cupcake calls a success. We can’t wait for them to finish painting the coffee shop patio so Cupcake can spend some time there. Hopefully before the end of the year.
