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.

Episode #13 Escape Kitty ( and Chena) - The Bear Facts, It's a Real Fish Tail

Episode #13 Escape Kitty ( and Chena) - The Bear Facts, It's a Real Fish Tail

Escape Kitty and her pal, a Standard Poodle named Chena, broke free from home and traveled to Alaksa. They have met up with some interesting folk, just not people kind of folk. So far Chena and Kitty made friends with a moose, a wolf, and now a cub. Very diverse group of friends.

This new adventure is a big whopping fish tale. As a kid, my dad was an avid fisherman. We took family fishing vacations - snore! I noticed that he rarely had big success when we were with him to witness the fun (snore), but when he went with his buddies - whoa! Those fish got big! I mean real big. Epic big. Fish Tale big.
Come on , dad, really? I mean really???

Well Escape Kitty's Alaskan adventure splashing around in a stream catching salmon (cuz that's the only kind of fish I know), is something for the record books. :) Come on , Kitty, really? Really???

Who will end up walking away with the fish in it's mouth? My money says it's not going to be Chena....but I do know they will share the spoils of the hunt.

Actually kindof surprised that Kitty is in the water. Now that I know she doesn't mind the water to much, I'm gonna welcome her home from Alaska with a nice warm bath. shhhhhhhh. If word gets out, she'll prolong her trip.

Ohh Kitty, I do miss you. Hope you are having fun.

I use burlap in all Escape Kitty LO's because it reminds me of her and the brown lacy ribbon represents Chena. I also used some Dusty Attic leafy Vines. 

Maggi added this interesting additional commentary regarding the photo:
That salmon that Miss Kitty is checking out is bigger than she is, LOL!!! Just a little note of "historical" interest, the cub was not yet able to catch a live fish so he was contented with playing with the ones that had already spawned and died. His Mom did all the fishing and she shared each on with her cub. One time I saw her catch a salmon and give it to the cub who promptly let it slip away!! Most of the salmon in this creek, aptly named Fish Creek, were large, up to 50 lbs.

Special thanks to Maggi43 for providing the photos of this cub fishing in Alaska and additional inside information. She took them in the Summer of 2010. She also loaned me her Poodle, Chena. Special thanks also to my photoshop instructor, who so patiently taught me the in's and outs of editing magic (well hours and hours of class time but who's counting).
