On the way home from the vet, when we changed buses, we took a detour through our downtown shopping mall Commerce. We stopped at Systembolaget (the state-run liquor store)…
…and basically smuggled Dashiell in the store. As they say in The Paper,” “A clipboard and a confident wave will get you into any building in the world!” Which is, act like you belong there and you’re not doing anything questionable, bringing a cat into a shop is easy. Of course, I have a lot of practice with that and Jacoby.
Dash seemed really interested in the wine…that’s my boy!
After buying our wine, we stopped in at Björn’s work so his coworkers could meet Emma and Dash.
Then we went to wait for our bus home. Emma wanted to carry Dash.
She did an excellent job managing Dash in his carrier.
On the walk from the bus stop to our apartment, we tried to walk Dash the way we walk home from the stop with the other cats. He wasn’t very enthusiastic about walking. But he does like trees.
So Emma carried him instead.
We ran into a mother and a small child who were interested in our kitten. Look at Emma introducing Dash to them!
I was especially impressed at how Emma introduced Dash to the child.
If therapy cats ever become a thing in Sweden, I think Emma would be a natural.
I wish Emma lived closer to us…she and Dash make a great team.
