Who is Escape Kitty?

Let me introduce myself. I am Escape Kitty.

I got my start on Sept 1, 2010 as I was out playing in the yard enjoying the birds and squirrels. Really just minding my own business. Happy. Content. Daydreaming.

When, but in an instant, I caught a movement in the corner of my eye. Since cats are noted for their superior vision, I had to do a double take because I thought my eyesight had failed me. I shut my kitty eyes for a moment and reopened them to disbelief.

A coyote? In MY yard? Could it be? And he's drooling my way? Move move move! Find my mom . Run to safety.

Big mistake! Really big mistake. Now she never lets me outside. Done - left to dream. ahhhhh but Kitty dreams really do come true.

So come follow me! I am off to Escape.

Happy 1st Anniversary to Escape Kitty (and Happy Birthday)

Happy 1st Anniversary to Escape Kitty (And Happy Birthday)
Happy Birthday Kitty - Sept 1st.  She is 4 today. 

But the real saga began 1 year ago....
It was one year today that my sweetheart transformed from house cat to Escape Kitty.

Just how did that happen?  It's a sad tale actually.

My cat is the quickest door dasher on the planet. She's out before I even have the door open. She lives for the thrill of the escape. I never minded too much before but on Sept 1, 2010, our lives changed.  

I let the Kitty out to romp and explore her backyard world when I saw a coyote wander into the yard sniffin for dinner. Frightened me to no end.   That put a quick halt on the outdoor fun.   So now she just dreams of the escape. Well she tries too escape as well, and manages some of the time.  

And thus A Legend was born.........Escape Kitty

She's been a Superhero
She's gone over Niagara Falls in a barrel
She's been sent to jail for going over Niagara Falls in that barrel
She's wished herself right onto a magic carpet
She's been to Alaska in a motor home driven by a Standard Poodle (Chena)
She's made some unusual friends: a baby bear, a wolf
She's pretended to be Santa 
She's been to Morocco
She's jammed with a monk playing a sitar in Morocco
She's hobnobbed with the Royals at a Moroccan Palace
and she's just getting started!

Much thanks to Maggi and Chena in helping to spread the magic of Escape Kitty. Visit Maggi's blog  , Scrap travel Bark for more antics.

    Where are you and Chena anyway??? Geez, I do wish you would go home and grab Jen's credit card before you and Chena take off on your next adventure. I'm broke!! Besides, Chena's Dad just retired and we're living off social security for crying out loud! We may have to live off Ramen noodles before too long. I don't know if Chena likes Ramen noodles, she likes that fancy EXPENSIVE dog food they sell at Petsmart!
