Bear in a Box,: Day 1

Since Street Heat didn't make the cut to be a Streetsblog.net blog, I thought I would take a couple of days to chronicle my efforts to make my cat bike friendly. For my birthday, my in-laws got me a beautiful "Buddy Carrier" to be attached to the front of a bike for purposes of transporting a small pet. After careful consultation with my sister-in-law and the Internet, today began bear's bike riding training.

After building the carrier, wrestling Bear into his harness, and attaching the harness to the carrier, I let him chill out for a little bit to get used to it. It's a little smaller than I thought, but he fits just fine. Because he adjusted so well, I decided we should go for a walk.

Here's what I found out:

1) His natural curiosity outweighed his dislike for the harness and being in a box
2) He's scared of cars while they're driving.

Tomorrow we'll try walking closer to Beverly and maybe even on Beverly to see if he can adjust to the car noises. Maybe by early next week we'll be able to take him for walks attached to the bicycle...
