This morning I took Bayleigh to the vet for a check up (everything looks good btw). On the way home, I went through the drive up lane at the bank. I was in the first lane so the teller could see Bayleigh trying to stick her nose out of the carrier. The teller kinda leans down to get a better look through the glass and coos, "Oh, I see you brought your ca..., do..., ...friend. You brought your little friend along." :LOL::LOL::LOL:

Okay, maybe you had to be there, but it cracked me up. I know as soon as I drove away she told all her co-workers about the "friend". Was it a cat? A dog? An alien? :LOL:

Some youngsters called Butterball a dog at Petsmart. I insisted he was a cat. They insisted he was a dog. Even the kids mom couldn't persuade them.

Do any of you carry your cat around with you? I have a customer at blockbuster who she carries her regular cat in her hoodie in the pocket or in the hood itself

I take Snuffie everywhere I possibly can. She likes car rides and enjoys being outdoors. If we run to get fast food we take her with us and all the drive thru people have loved her so far. They always feel bad because they have doggy treats but no kitty treats! lol I usually carry them aroud in a tiny bottle in my pocket anyhow so its no biggie. But yes, if I know I can get away with taking into a place then I do, the worst thing they will do is kick me out which is fine, it will save me money anyhow! lol:LOL: I haven't been caught and kicked out yet!

I'm in Ohio, They usually offer treats for dogs at banks drive thru's as well as fast food drive thru's. Sometimes at what we call "convienient store drive thru's". Ohio is the only place I know that has those, we don't have them in NC but they offer dog treats as well as will give your kids those big pretzel rods. The banks in NC usually give out dog treats as well.

I took Gio to the local pet store a couple weeks ago and some guy came up to us and said "I thought those things were FAKE!". He said he had watched Austin Powers and thought that cat was made up for that movie... I said "Yeah, midgets are fake too". LMAO!!

Kids always seem to think they are hairless Chihuahua's. I guess I can see where they are coming from because of the ears. I'll cut the kids some slack... but that guy in the pet store... NO WAY! :LOL:

Wow!! I guess in some corners of the world it should be expected for everyone to not know about this breed.

Lol, funny stories everyone!

I like when we pull up to a stop light and you know the person/people in the car next to you is staring at the hairless kitty that is "flashing them". It makes me laugh everytime, so I can't look over at them to acknowledge them. :LOL:
