Special Weekend Post: Strollering?

Currently holding negotiations with my mommeh in regards to purchasing us a stroller. We would like some fresh air this summer, and a change of scenery would not go amiss. However, none of us has ever tried kitteh strollering before, and we are not sure what to look for in a good stroller. We need something with a smooth ride, so my mommeh can take us power-walking or jogging down to the beach with her, and we hear all strollers are not the same when it comes to going over lumps and bumps on the trail! We also want to make sure our stroller has plenty of room to see. We notice that a lot of them are verreh enclosed with only one mesh window, but we want as much window space as possible so we can see all around us and get the best whiffs! After all, what's the sense of strollering if you can't see where you're going or get a good breeze? So basically, we want to know who has been strollering before, and what strollers you think are the best. What kind do you use? What are the pros and cons? What do you recommend? Tell us as much as you can! Linkies, pictures, and details appreciated! So here's our little list so far of what we need in a stroller:
- Lots of viewing room.
- Smooth ride for a jog.
- Fits 2 kittehs, one small Attie adult and one average sized Audrey kitten.
- Can be zipped closed all the way around, no open spaces for small kittens to fall out of.
- Maximum cost about 100 green papers. (my mommeh's request.)
- Comes in a feminine color or pattern! (our request.)
And, we are sure someone will ask this question because we know a lot of strollers have weight restrictions... But a ladycat never tells her weight, so we will just say that even when Audrey is fully grown the two of us will weigh less than 20lbs combined. I am a verreh petite ladycat and if the size of Audrey's mommie-cat has anything to do with it, it looks like Audrey will be petite as well.

  1. There are a few cats who use strollers, Jacqueline's trio for one. Someone else just had her cat out for the day at a park, stroller and leash. Wish our human could remember who it was! We're sure you'll get lots of good info; good luck!

  3. My kittehs would never ever gets in a stroller and go outside...they are 'fraid of everythings, like each others shadows or our new scary washer and dryer....sounds like fun to be able to go to the beach though Attie.

  9. I have not been strollering for a long time, but I love to go! Harley is a little too skerred of it though. We first bought an inexpensive one and it was No Good because the wheels were small and wobbly and the cabin did not close up securely.

    We love our Pet Gear AT3 stroller. It is a 3-wheel design, it is very sturdy and easy to use, and it folds down for storage. My Mommeh put a sleeping bag inside so if I hear a loud noise and get nervous I have a place to hide.

    Good luck!

  10. Sorry, I can't help because we've never had one. My three combined would weigh over 40 lbs.!

    It sounds like a fantastic idea, though, and it's good to start stuff like this when kitties are still very young. Good luck!

    By the way, Attie's on the LOLSpot today twice!

  13. We have never been strollering. All we have are large and small PTU's for the car. They are No Fun so we do not recommend them at all.

  15. Sorry, girls, we can't help you on this one...we either have a carrying bag or a cage. We are lucky enough to have a nice garden that we can walk in so we don't need a stroller, but I think if we didn't have a garden, a stroller might be kinda fun!! We hope you find the perfect one in the perfect colour and size. Good luck!! Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny

  20. Strollering sounds fun, if your kitties are up for it. I know that Jacqueline has one for her girls, and that Nikita Cat and Daisy the Curly Cat have them, too! Good luck! :)
