Size Matters! World's Longest Covered Bridge

Today was a great day for "Super Sized" Adventures! What could be more appropriate than the World's Largest Covered Bridge in Hartland, New Brunswick?
Feeling some trepidation over reporting on such a capacious and renowned structure, I decided to enlist some help! Sometimes good help comes in small packages, like Haiden. He has a good eye for details though! I know this because he often pokes me in the eye. Haiden has been helping me build up my corneal reflexes because mine are somewhat slow. Perhaps that is because I have no eyelashes to warn me of incoming objects... No, it is probably my contacts....
Nofuratu's physiology tidbit: The Corneal reflex, causes both eyes to blink when only one eye is subject to touch, bright light or sound greater than 40-60 decibels. This reflex protects the eyes by spreading tears and removing foreign bodies. Contact lenses can reduce or eliminate your corneal reflex.

Here we are whispering our secret plan which I think involved peanut butter sandwiches.......

This is a lovely monument that gives you some quick facts about Hartland's famous bridge. It is 1,282 feet long and is open to vehicles driving across, providing they meet some restrictions.
Here I am reading upside down...

Unfortunately the bridge was undergoing some construction during our visit, so Haiden and I were not able to run back and forth across it all afternoon as we had previously planned.

As usual, my serious feline reporting skills enabled me to get behind the scenes. Although they did not permit me to strut my stuff on their catwalk, these construction workers were happy to be interviewed by moi and pose for photos. I wish I had remembered to get their names...

Of course I stopped to check out the gift shop. Who knew orange cats were so popular?

I have not met many moose, but this one seems to be as "super sized" as the bridge!

This is a tree I climbed near the picnic tables. Would you believe that was my first climb in a real tree? Good thing I have been practising on my peoples furniture and walls over the last few months! It is important to be prepared.

Despite the unsavory view of repairs, Haiden and I give Hartland's covered bridge 1,282 Meows out of 5. It was certainly worth the trip!

Guy's Frenchys has Cool Digs for a Cat Size Budget

Many of my fans ask me where I get my fabulous clothing and accessories! My secret for cool digs on a cat sized budget is Guy's Frenchys. Here is their web site http://www.guysfrenchys.com/

Although I make it a point to visit any Guy's Frenchys I pass during my travels, my FAVORITE location is Mountain rd (near Trinity Drive) in Moncton, where we did this photo shoot. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming to good mannered naked cats like myself.

Here I go on a shopping extravaganza!

First I get a basket...

Then I do a quick flip through the racks.

Sometimes I just stroll around the store and wait for something to catch my eye.

This fleece lined Scottish number is going to be great for fall. I'll take it!

The best part of a trip to Frenchys is trying stuff on!! Since I am comfortable being naked in public, I do not bother with the changing rooms. Pink Flamingo! My new favorite.

Did you see a hat to go with this?

Mmmmmm...used shoes smell the best.

"Lady, that is not your color or style." (I even help other customers shop by giving my expert opinion)

This section is mislabeled "Purses" when it should obviously be "Hammocks".

Frenchys also sells rags in prewrapped bundles.

Perfect for Bouncing!

This is Verna! She a cashier that shares her water with me, gives me pens when I have to write important notes, and helps me pick out good books! I respect Verna's fashion sense.

Have you ever wondered what is behind these doors? Only serious feline reporters like moi get an all access pass and luckily for you, I brought my camera crew.

Now I admit I imagined something more glamorous... like thousands of tasty, "Clothes Sorting Mice" pushing carts past mountains of new stock with their fancy opposable thumbs...cheese and cracker breaks....or maybe Christmas elves?...but the secret is not mice or Santa's elves....

It is simply highly efficient ladies with opposable thumbs and rubber totes! Here I am helping out with some tough work. This is one of my people, Mackenzie. She bought her snazzy outfit at Frenchys too.

There is a play area with a TV. That is me down by Eeyore.

Verna, what do you think we should pick to read next? Have you seen any T.S Eliot in the book bin?

Guy's Frenchys family clothing gets 5 Meows out of 5!
Okay people, where did we park the car?
