Default Shop Critters: Show Yer Motorsickle Friendly Pet

As usual, the shop door was open and I was working on one of my motorsickles, when I caught a flash of movement outta the corner of my peeper. I turned to see a cat calmly, coolly regarding me from across the garage. I said howdy and went back to work.

When I turned around again, he had halved the distance between us and was licking his paw and rubbing it over his ear. I was mildly amused by his giant, poly-dactyl paws, but hey, I'm a dog guy so I turned back to the task at hand.

A couple minutes later I felt a tug on my pant's cuff. That lil' feline bastard was pulling my trouser leg with his paw. He would take that snowshoe paw and hook his claws into the denim and yank downward, cock his triangular head and stare at me with those ebony and azure eyes.

"Hey buddy." I leaned over to pet him. He swatted at my hand, drawing blood, and backed away hissing. Immediately I liked him and his hard-assed rebel attitude. I never tried to pet him again but he knew that he was welcome in my shop.

He would hang around and watch me work. I would share some chicken or tuna with him and he would reward me with long disapproving stares. Too freakin' cool! Eventually I started calling him Scram because he took off every time I tried to get too close. Wotta cat.

He hasn't been around in the last couple years and I miss the lil' shit. I thought that I would share a couple pic of him witcha all...



Mosey wishes he could mosey like this old cat...



Dig them crazy paws!



Here's my buddy's dog that frequently visits and has been known to abscond with my screwdrivers. Bad dog! Ahhhh, wot am I saying, she's the best damn hound that I ever dun seen y'all!

Satori the Dog and the Sportster...



BTW, Mosey was the nickname of an old dawg of mine. Mozambique was an amazingly good friend. My lil' Basenji, oh wild dog with the African veldt reflected in his eyes. I took my username in honor of that dog, Mister Mosey. Now you now the rest of the story.

It's your turn. Post yer pics and stories of the shop cat or the sidecar dog or the pet rat that rides in yer jacket pocket. C'mon y'all, share them critters with the world. Pose yer pet with the motorsickle and click that shutter!

Life is short and brutal. Ride free...

Good pic! I'll bet it's a lot easier to put a cat on a helmet than to put a helmet on a cat...

No pics on the bike although he rides on the tank sometimes. This is his favorite the ATV.



He actually stands on the headlight when riding, I have to catch/pitch him every once in a while. 8.5 lbs. of pure terror!
