Adventure One: Outfitting for My Journeys

When going on adventures, it's important to have the right equipment, and to be prepared!

The first step in preparing for adventure is a trip to the doctor, to make sure I am in good health. A regular checkup is as important for pets as it is for people.

Since I am going to be outside on my adventures, and could be exposed to diseases carried by ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, and other animals, it was important that I had medicines to protect me. Vaccines protect me from some diseases, and other medications protect me from parasites. The doctor knew exactly what I needed to keep me safe and healthy, so I could enjoy myself and go on many adventures. While we were at the doctor's, they talked about "neutering" me. I don't know what that means, but I suspect it will be an upcoming adventure.

Once I had the okay from my doctor, I needed to get the proper equipment for my journeys. This meant a trip to the store!

My first trip to the pet store was fun. I met new people and saw lots of things I had never seen before. At the store, we found some things I would need for my adventures. I got a nice carrier, so I could safely travel in style. A collar to match the carrier was essential. And I needed a tag with important information on it, in case I ever got separated from my friends. Mine has my name and two phone numbers on it.

Once I had my new collar, tag and carrier, I had to go show them off to some of my friends! See pictures to the right.

Here are some of the things that accompany me on my journeys:

My soft carrier, collar (with bell and identification tag), water bottle, Mr. DeOgee, and a foldable dish for food or water. Notice that my collar, carrier, and dish are all my favorite color: blue!

In the background, you can see my friend Allie (the calico on the left) and her mom, Gee (the gray and white one on the right), relaxing in cardboard boxes. I have a cushy bed, but they like the boxes better.


Now that I have had my checkup and have all the proper gear, I'm ready to go on adventures. I hope you'll come back and read about my journeys. We'll have lots of fun seeing new things and learning about the world!
