Dusty’s Big Day Out – What Gives, I Hear You Say?

As Dusty is unwell Mum and Dad decided to take him on a ‘Big Day Out’ so he could enjoy a car ride and a visit to the beach. The weather was perfect for his road trip, and it is with pride that we present our movie to celebrate what turned out to be a perfect and wonderful day.

We learned, just after Christmas, that Dusty loves to ride in the car, his spirits lift and his eyes light up. The discovery was made by accident when Dusty had his epic drama day, the day we thought we were losing him, which you can check here.  

It was such an adventure! 

Please enjoy Dusty’s Big Day Out video, it was made with great love and pride in our little senior man. The Kitties Blue are honouring our friend Nellie, the Cat From Hell, and we can think of no better tribute than her splendid pumpkin which she honoured us with this year. Thank you Nellie, one in elebenty billion.

Happy Sunday Selfie to all our friends,

The Dash Kitten Crew

    What an amazing adventure! Dusty’s been through so much these last couple of weeks he totally deserved this wonderful, special day. He’s so calm, but you can see how much he was enjoying even just the car ride out to the beach! Brilliant!

    What a wonderful way to honor Nellie, I want you to know that Nellie absolutely LOVED riding in the car! She has been a traveler since she first came to live with me. And seeing Dusty on his road trip made my heart sing. So did the pumpkin!
    Thanks so much
    Love Barb

    Oh, that card trip made Dusty so very perky! It amazes me that he loves the car so much. All of mine simply hate road trips!

    What a great video! We saw some of this on FB yesterday too. How funny that you accidentally discovered how much Dusty enjoys a car ride. I think it’s just beyond sweet that you did this for him. He was soooo happy.

    What a great day for you, Dusty. None of us have ever been to the beach. Bet all the ocean and fishy smells were wonderful. What a special thing for your humans to do for you. We hope you have more adventures. You are always in Mom’s prayers, and we send POTP. Thanks for sharing your film on hopping day.

    That was a very exciting day out, Dusty. I can see how much you enjoyed it. The beach looks lovely. I would love to go to a beach and roll in all that sand, but I hate going in the car.

    Great video diary of a Grand Day Out! Love it, and looks like you had a very beautiful spot to enjoy the weather and watch the day go by. Purrs to you all, Erin

    Wow, that is totally awesome! Dusty, I think you are a little crazy, liking car rides (I prefer to fly), but I’m so happy to see you enjoying yourself on your adventure.

    P.S. My human learned something new – she didn’t know that you guys drove on the British side of the road! And now she wonders why Canada doesn’t.

    Thank you for sharing! Seeing the pure joy from Dusty truly made my day and had me smiling. I was having to show Daniel since it was just so precious (the dogs for some reason weren’t impressed but kitties on the screen confuse them. 😉 ).
