Bike Commute Diaries: “She’s Home!” said the Cat

18 Apr

I miss my dear old cat Belle. She would come running when she heard my car pulling into the driveway, tail in the air and a bounce in her step. Since I don’t drive much, my new cat Blackie doesn’t know that trick. Instead, it’s the sound of the garage door opening that has him sauntering down the walkway to greet me.

About the Bike Commute Diaries: Launched in May 2012 for National Bike Month, this series explores the unexpected and surprising things I’ve learned about bicycling for transportation.

    :-) My cats both come running when I get home – it is the most delightful thing in the whole world.

    Ivy only has an inch long tail, she sticks it up and it vibrates like a buzzy bee – brilliant.

    Aww. My two know the sound of my engine, too. (And howl if I take too long with the keys in the door.)

      Thanks, for the compliment. Blackie does take extra care with his appearance and hops on his stool just so I can groom him. He’s quite the dandy!
