Ok, whoever can train their cat to run alongside them on a trailride get an automatic positive rep point from me!
Heh, I recall on a road ride some years back I passed a little place way out in the middle of nowhere and there was a litter of kittens playing in the front yard. One of them saw me and tore off chasing me--I think he must've just seen the motion and had no idea how big or far away I was but he ran maybe 20 feet just full tilt through the lawn, grass up to his eyes straight after me. He was halfway up the yard and nowhere near me or the road, but if I was mouse sized I'd have been a mite concerned.
Walk into the local shop 3 weeks ago and see a kitten. Shop owner says the door was open and this cat was sitting there screaming and meowing. Offered some food and he came in. He said he would keep him til the owner's claimed him.
Three weeks and a Vet's health check later meet the "Shop Cat". Say hello to Spokes!
