Stepping Out With Wylla Stout: Wag Pet Market
In the heart of the Proctor District of North Tacoma, you'll find Wag, a sweet little pet boutique. We do a lot of shopping at Wag, and over the years we've gotten to know all the friendly folks who work there, including Jennifer, Opal the Human's mama.
Bean was running low on crunchies, so Wylla and I took a trip up to there yesterday to replenish the supply. Danette, the shop's proprietress was working, and was so excited to see our wee girl.
"OH, little Peanut!!!" she squealed, when I dropped Wylla on the counter. Wylla gladly accepted some love from Danette, then explored the counter and rubbed her little face against every little thing.
From the counter, she surveyed the shop, then spied the shelf of cat toys and cat treats.
I think she was considering making a leap to explore more, so before that could happen, I scooped her up, and placed her on the shelf,
so she could have a closer look at the kitty things.
And when she was done up there, she explored the floor.
There were giant bags of kitty crunchies EVERYWHERE!
And, of course, things for dogs,
which weren't of much interest to a kitten, so she took a spontaneous bath break,
and had a contemplative moment.
Next, she discovered a stack of dog beds that were conveniently placed in a sunlight patch, and she perched for a spell.
And then climbed higher to a fuzzier, cozier pile of beds where she curled up for a nap.
I hated to interrupt her, but it was time to leave. I picked her up, put her on my shoulder, we paid for Charlene's crunchies and said our goodbyes. Lucky Wylla left with couple of kitten toys - both gifts Danette.
When we returned home, Bean greeted us at the door. First, she gave her bag of food a sniff, then turned to Wylla. Bean's ear's went back and her nostrils flared as she took in every smell Wylla carried home.
"Where have you been, Wylla?" she seemed to say, "you smell delicious!"
