A Special Edition: Catitude—This is How I Roll. Meow.

I live in the Pacific Northwest. Clouds and rain, the sky’s fashionistas. Those of us who live here supply our own blue skies—in the form of blue tarps. And we bring our own sunshine, whether in the clothes we wear or the vehicles we drive.

Consider me a Mini Cooper enthusiast. Last summer my better half and I rented this Mini Cooper hardtop for a short trip in July. We rented our sunshine and loved the car.

Summer driving, we had a blast.

Summer driving, we had a blast.

Then the December darkness arrived. Record breaking rains, clouds so thick sunlight took a nap.

Time to shop for Christmas.

Home Goods recently opened in our small town. On a shelf near the cash registers sat this little number. A Mini-memory maker. Summer, sunshine, speed. It found a new home in our living room.

It drives like a go-cart, dances like a butterfly, and cruises like a bee.

It drives like a go-cart, dances like a butterfly, and cruises like a bee.

And a new driver . . . even before the grands could come over and give it a spin.

Would you fluff this blanket for me?

Would you fluff this blanket for me?

    Wow, does it drive? (I’m not sure if I’m asking about the car or the cat). I’ve never seen a model car that size before… I’ve seen matchbox-sized cars and full-sized ones. Maybe I should get out more, and shop at Home Goods.

    • Actually, the cat love to go for drives in a full sized car. Regarding the Mini electric car in our living room, it really does drive. And the headlights and tail lights work. It is a real hoot. The shifter activates the drive train and supports forward and reverse. There are two buttons on the steering wheel that mimic engine noise. It is a little too much fun.
