When I was growing up in the UK, we loved to play in the sand on our beaches.
In fact, I remember my father telling me about a girl that he met who was playing in the ocean at the time, and she had a sandbag on her shoulder.
He said to me, “You have to take it off, because I think you’re going to be drowned if you don’t”.
So I did.
She went on to get her Masters in Geography, which is really hard, because you need to take the sandbag off, and I did, and it wasn’t long after that I started playing with my friends in the water, and eventually got the title of ‘World’s Biggest Sandbag Cat’.
But that was all in the 90s, so we weren’t as involved with sandbag culture as we are now.
And it’s also because I don’t really like being in the sun.
But now that I’m living in a big city, I’m very into the sun, so that’s been a huge thing for me.
And so the idea that cats are going to go out in the sunlight and play in it is definitely one of the things that I’d like to explore.
So we’ve had cats that have played in the sea, cats that play in pools, cats in the open air, and we’re just really keen to explore these different styles of play.
I think there’s a lot of possibilities, but we’ve been pretty lucky to have a lot more cats in this environment than we have on land, so there’s still a lot to explore!
And if you have any questions about cats, we’d love to hear from you.
