Peekaru — Snuggie gone wild


This could be the breakthrough I've been looking for.

See, for the longest time I've wanted to take my cat along on my more or less daily runs.

But I haven't been able to figure out how to carry the cat comfortably.


I've searched in vain for some sort of harness or backpack that would let me securely enclose the animal yet allow it to enjoy the journey.

I'm thinking this puppy (as it were) might be the answer to my prayers.

Five sizes, five colors.

Plus Joe, if you really think about it, the whole ensemble lacks that 'chic' factor. Definitely not babe magnet material no matter how cute Humphrey might be. ;-)

P.S. And like Bev said, I know this intuitively and I ain't even a CAT PERSON!

Whilst you jog, Humphrey may enjoy his ´me time´ at home.

Sorry, that first photo can't stop me from thinking about that movie, "Alien".

cats + confinement = bad things

Egads... Reminds me of this:

OK, assuming Humphrey wants to go along on those runs, how about a skateboard with a stick attached for steering. Of course you'd need a windshield of some sort. I do think lilorfnannie is a tad hostile, no doubt the mother of seven foster kids, perhaps really orphaned at a young age, she may have felt passed over in a community of purse dogs, but I am inclined to agree that toting an animal in/on anything other than a leash or harness just looks silly. Otherwise I might have suggested a jogging stroller.

The first picture reminds me of alien leaving the body of Sigourney Weaver! :)

I think Miles got it right, and she isn't even a cat person.
I used to walk up Stone Mountain a few times a week -- http://static.panoramio.com/photos/original/607681.jpg -- and I would occasionally see someone trying to transport a kitty (always in some kind of backpack contraption) up with them, and it was never good.

I have to wonder if Humphrey has, somehow, expressed the desire to be a passenger. And, don't I remember reading once, in these pages, how some as*hole once threw a rock or an egg or something at you while you ran? What if some as*hole cat hater with good aim and low impulse control decided to take a shot? I can't bear to think of it! Maybe you could assuage your and/or his need for such an adventure by just toting him around your property in one of those things, see how he takes to it, kind of thing. Or take him on a short shopping trip to PetSmart or somewhere. I don't know, maybe I'm just projecting my own fears onto the situation, 'cause if I tried this with one of my two, it would be the end of the world, Armageddon, the apocalypse, a cataclysm of monumental proportion. Plus, it would be really awful.

That's a good point- I would think that would be the case.

Otherwise- I simply can't read the blog of someone who would seriously put their pet in a snuggie/babysling/babycarrier/whatever to carry with them. I have a dog and I love it, but I'm sorry, I think the people that refer to their pets as their "fur-babies" or "children", carry them on their person like babies, that give more sweat and life's blood into getting stray cats adopted then they do taking care of abused and unwanted children in their own community, and otherwise treat them like they are human or better than human are demented as hell. I avoid them like the plague, see ya.

All that jostling is going to make Humphrey mad as hell and he is liable to claw your belly out.
