Hi! Blue Cat here. In my last post I shared my impressions of New Hampshire, but the story does not end there. I needed to get home to Colorado, so I made a reservation to fly Carry-On Class on United Airlines. For those of you who don’t know, Carry-On Class is just like First Class, except there are no free drinks, no food, and you travel stuffed in a bag in the overhead. Or at someone’s feet if you’re particularly unlucky and are in Boarding Group 3 or 4. Which I was…
As it turned out, I was extremely lucky. There was one seat left open on the flight, so I was able to fly Small Cat Class. Not only are there free drinks and free food, but I had a spacious seat all to myself. As you can see, Small Cat Class includes an enourmous amount of leg room – if you’re a small, crocheted cat.
United Airlines is one of the few airlines that provides you with a choice of food – a cookie or some pretzels – but on this flight they had a special snack mix that was more than a meal for someone who watches his weight like I do. Here I am with my meal, served in a special fold-out dining room that you only get in Small Cat Class.
After that I was treated to a big screen music video. Can you guess who my favorite artist is?
All in all it was a great trip, although I did have to go back into the bag at the end of the flight. (Scribe’s Note: the seat belts on airplane seats can’t restrain Blue Cat’s awesomeness in the case of a rough landing.) Next stop – Chicago!
I’d love to hear about how you’ve traveled lately – car, boat, train or rocket? Drop me a line and let me know.
Your traveling friend,
