Sophie’s Indian Mounds Adventure
Hey guys! I got to go on an adventure yesterday! It’s been a while since I’ve been on an adventure.. not since BlogPaws, actually. I’ve been squirming for one, but Mom and Dad said I couldn’t go outside for a while because we all had the dreaded F word… fleas. We finally got a handle on them, so that means adventure time!
When Mom and Dad loaded me up in my Sleepypod, my brofurs had to investigate. I think they were a little bit jealous that they didn’t get to go, but honestly, they are both big babies. They couldn’t handle an adventure like the one we were about to embark on.
We finally got out the door and headed to the Ocmulgee National Monument. It’s this super cool place not far from us where Native Americans used to live like a bazillion years ago. There are lots of Indian Mounds (whatever that means) and cool hiking trails.
We were like the only ones there, so I got go off-leash. I don’t recommend going off-leash on adventures for normal kitties, but because of my CH I can’t run very fast or jump or climb, which means that I can’t get away from Mom and Dad even if I wanted to. I stay right with them, and they keep an annoyingly close eye on me. They won’t let me do anything by myself. Talk about overprotective… but it’s for my own safety!
The coolest part about outdoor adventures is getting to roll around in the grass. I got to bring along a couple of my favorite ball toys, and I had the best time rolling around in the dirt with them.
Unfortunately it was SUPER hot, so we didn’t stay very long. Mom and Dad were worried that I would get over-heated. More of that overprotective stuff…
Anyway, we had a great time, even if it was a short adventure. They promised we would go back again sometime. I can’t wait, because I’d really like to roll down that Indian Mound. There was a sign on it that said “Keep Off,” but I think I could easily get away with it by claiming I can’t read… right???
Here’s to the next big adventure!!!
