She stayed close - either perching on our shoulders or resting in our arms. She was calm and sweet and made good impressions on many as we walked through the crowds.
This little kitten, in a giant sea of dogs, made us proud.
Here she is saying hello to Shana Banana.
And here she is meeting the vendors.
And here she is playing a round of "Pass the Cat". She started off on the shoulders of Marguerite.
And from Marguerite's shoulders, she went to this fellow.
And from this fellow, to this lovely lady.
And then to our friend Sarah.
And back to the gentleman.
What a brave and adventurous kitten!
Zelda (now Zoubie) Lamm's parents, Lynn and Alex, joined us to walk. I asked Lynn if she would like to carry Wylla, and she answered "yes" with a big smile and teary eyes. Wylla was very comfortable in her arms, and walked the whole mile + with her. It was quite sweet, and both Wylla and Lynn were very happy together.
Ninja Bob, another Tacoma celebricat, joined us for he walk too! Bob is the cat ambassador at the Northwest Spay and Neuter Center.
You may recognize him - he's the three legged fellow that joined us for last year's walk.
Bob meets a lot of dogs every day of his life, and they don't make him nervous at all. Not even giant dogs.
Shana Banana and Jim's dog, Blixa, joined for the walk too.
And here are a couple of pups we met along the walk.
We had a wonderful time this year - we walked tall knowing our community raised so much and made a huge contribution towards the success of this event.
We hope you all will be able to join us next year! As soon as I know the date, I'll let you know so you can mark your calendars and book your flights!
