When we went to our local DjurMagazinet, Alfred checked out the cat trees.
They have a really good selection, but here in Europe they seem to cover cat trees with sisal and faux fur fabric rather than carpeting.
Freddy was just happily playtesting the trees when…
…This happened. Not gonna lie, I laughed. He totally reminded me of this cartoon I did 5 years ago!
But I mean, look at his feet (and hand)! I had to highlight them…because, well…look at them!
Meanwhile, Lorelai was having trouble managing her new harness and leash.
Then she decided she wanted to be up in my lap.
Ambition and ability are, sadly, two very different things.
She wasn’t fazed, though.
Quite the opposite, in fact. She was gathering herself up for another attempt.
Lorelai was too small for both the collar and harness I had for her, so we went to DjurMagazinet to get her something that fit.
We’re regulars there, of course (we can see the store from outside our house), and they love it when we bring our cats in.
So we got personal help in fitting a harness and collar to Rory.
Unlike Alfred, who was leash-trained before we got him, this is the first time Rory had on a collar, harness, or leash.
She was…mostly a natural.
But Rory is also a quick learner.
And she enjoyed checking out the cat trees in the store.

We are very lucky in that we live extremely close to a very good pet supplies store. Skövde’s DjurMagazinet is the equivalent of five Boston blocks from our apartment.
And they carry almost everything we need. The rest we can order online.
But they have our Bozita, our Vaisto raw, and everything else we need on a regular basis.
And of course they welcome pet visitors. And you know how Jacoby loves to help me shop.
He always makes sure we have gotten everything we need before we pay.
The staff all know Jake, of course.
With our purchases safely stowed in Jake’s light stroller, we’re homeward bound!
