On the Bayou!

I was not napping much this last weekend as I've been on a trip up the Mississippi with the Cat Scouts. I do get around :) It was very ably organised by good buddy Sammy of One Spoiled Cat
First of all I met my buddy and roomie Spitty at Vicksburg airport. It was a bit nip and tuck whether we would even find each other as he was flying in from the west coast and I hitched a lift across the Atlantic on a passing Portuguese man o' war. I was misled about the type of vessel it was! I asked the waiter for a Stinger. Maybe I was unwise!

Anyway, here we are looking dapper at the airport.

Here is our boat to take our trip down the river!
(I shall say river from now on as typing Misisissisissippispi is a bit of a chore)

Ok, just kidding!

Here we are channelling the Blues Brothers on our way 
to check out the girls facilities before dinner

This was our luxury cabin

Then we reached some kind of swampy place with tents!!!!!

So we booked a cabin

And then all the Cat Scouts told each other scary stories around the campfire 
about monsters in the dark!

I wore my Yogi Bear onesie!

The next day we packed to go home (well, some of us!)

We collected together our souvenirs 

It was great fun!

The End

These were only some of the highlights. If you want to see more of the trip and the other stuff we get up to, then you should join Cat Scouts. All (well-behaved) kitties are welcome!

Today we have a guest worder! 
This definition comes from the delectable Miss Nylablue :)
Thank you and take it away .....

Diphthong: What a purrson wearz to go swimmin in

  6. Nylablue hit it out of the park with that definition! Good post about our great trip. You were very smart to add "well behaved" to the kitties welcome at Cat Scouts. Don't want any of those hooligans like we used to have. Purrs, Mau and XO, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  23. Looks like you had an AMAZIN' time.

    That riverboat was fantastic. Bet it was a lot better than the uh... um... 'vessel' upon which you travelled to the US, huh?

    Might I suggest teleportin' on your way home?

    Purrs,
    Nissy #Niss4Senate - tell the PM, today.

  30. That was quite an adventure!!! ...so Austin, what kind of "vessel" did you take to go home??? haha!

    I bet you two didn't know that we live right by Mrs. Hippy. You could have taken that paddleboat north and docked at the townhouse!

  31. OMC, this is way more luxe than Sammy's camping trip last year. Odin would make an excellent scout but mom is already working 80 weeks. Meanwhile, come see how he spends his time.
