Domino came out on her front step early this morning to look out on her domain. She has a scheduled flight to Sidmouth in Devon, England in just a few minutes. This is the home of her beloved Milo.
Last time Milo visited Domino he crashed upon landing, and she has been very concerned about him ever since, even though he made it safely back home again and was never injured.
Domino promised Milo that as soon as she had her pilot's licence that she would make the long trip over the pond to see him. Well, Domino became a CCFO just last week, and passed with flying colours (pun intended)! CCFO stands for Certified Cat Flight Opurrator, by the way, for those of you who haven't yet had your kitties trained to fly on their boogie mats.
Actually, Domino's licence extends to other kinds of mats as well, including area rugs, doormats, or any type of small carpet. Domino is very safety conscious and goes outside before her flight to test the elements.
First of all, however, she stops and pays homage to Kitty Buddah, and asks him to help her have a safe journey across the Atlantic. Then, Domino makes her way over to the front lawn to test the wind conditions. As she has her very own windsocks on all fours, this is easy for her to do. She stops there, briefly,to meditate and calm herself. It's a nice day, and there is nothing untoward in the offing. Domino keeps her sights on her mission, and Milo in her thoughts as he is the impetpuss (er impetus) for this voyage.
All is well, and Domino returns to the driveway, to look back on her home sweet home. She has never been so far away before, and is a little trepidacious.
Then, without further ado, Domino mounts her mat, places her paws in flight pawsition and utters the magic word "AbraCATdabra"! And she's off ...
