Putting out the welcome mat for Rumblepurr - guest blog from Cleo



Remember my BOOTIFUL puppy pal Cleo, from  'Cleo's day' blog? She's sent over this guest post about my trip to San Francisco!

I can’t believe my mancat friend Rumblepurr is really coming to visit me in San Francisco! All the way from the other side of the world. I need to remember to tell him to bring layers. We get all kinds of weather during the summer. One day hot and one cold and I want him to be comfortable. If he gets cold, he can buy one of those "I escaped from Alcatraz" sweatshirts and then give it to Inigo when he gets home.

It is so exciting! I can't wait to show him around and have him meet some of [my] friends. My mind is all over the place thinking about where to take him. I wonder what he will like?

We could go to the Presidio and chase birds. They fly low and though I never have, I bet he could catch one. We could go to Golden Gate Park and try to catch fish in the pond. Since we will make such a handsome pair, we will get lots of love and treats from tourists, I just know it!



Before he gets here though I have so much to do. First I am going to make my female wash my bedding and gulp, even my toys. First impressions are important and I don’t want him to think that I am messy or stinky. PL said he would trim my nails nicely the day before Rumblepurr arrives. My recent bath might last but since grooming is important for handsome mancats, my female is going to start brushing me every afternoon a week before he gets here. I want my lion fur nice and poofy.



I plan on helping with the grocery list too. PL and I are already negotiating how many sardines and tuna to buy. He is on vacation so I think Rumblepurr should have nice snacks. Coming such a long way from New Zealand, he might get hungry late at night too.



Grrr time to get busy, then my female and I will work on the perfect itinerary!

Grrrr-purrrr
