First stop was a local pet store that was having an open house and Chanel got to hang out and got a bag of treats as well. She was sitting at the front of the store (the front door of the store was open as the weather was nice) when a metal grocery cart went by and rattled quite a bit. Chanel got startled and mom took a few minutes to calm her back down. Part of going places is making sure the experience always ends on a positive note. If she were to go home after being startled or whatever, then she would be more reluctant to go the next time. She took a couple of treats from the store clerks after a couple of minutes, so we know she was OK. Mom also gave her some treats once they got back in the car.
Second stop was a local store that was hosting a photo shoot to raise funds for a local group called Rescued Rollers that takes donated pet wheelchairs and refurbishes them for rescues and low income families. We have met up with this photographer before and when Chanel came out of her carrier, he got excited as he remember her from last winter.
Great picture of you Chanel. What fun to go visiting in stores.ReplyDelete
Those rattley grocery carts scare me too, Chanel!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful idea, going to a pet store and hanging out! We love hearing about you having adventures, Chanel, and this one sounded like an awesome one!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous portrait!!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a good outing! It's really not a bad thing for something noisy to startle a kitty, as long as she is able to calm down afterwards. It's part of being desensitized to things. That's why I went to so many crazy, noisy cat shows.ReplyDelete
It is nice to get out and go shopping once in a while like everyone else. How lucky you are!ReplyDelete

What a fun time for Chanel. That’s a great photo of her.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a couple of good outings!ReplyDelete
Those shopping carts are a problem. They unnerve the cats we take to the local pet-supply shop for 'show and tell', too. Even the easy-going cats hate them.ReplyDelete
We can understand the photographer's excitement, as she is a beautiful young lady. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and SawyerReplyDelete
