Cat Goes To The Beach For The First Time And Has Very Strong Opinions About It

Meet Pumpkin, a stunning ginger cat who was rescued when he was only a newborn

As he grew, his family found out that he suffers from a mild case of cerebellar hypoplasia.

Despite this affecting his coordination and depth perception, it certainly doesn’t affect his taste for adventure.

“We say he’s clumsy like a puppy,” Tia (who asked that her last name not be included), Pumpkin’s mom, told The Dodo.

“He looks more like he trots than runs, his front paws up one at a time.” 

He has always enjoyed the outdoors, he likes going hiking and kayaking with his family, so they decided to try introducing him to the beach.

Initially, Pumpkin seemed to be interested in the beach, curious about the surroundings, running around, checking stuff out, and just enjoying himself.

That was until the wind began to pick up, and this adventure cat turned into a grumpy cat in an instant.

“He actually really loved the beach but we soon found out he didn’t love the wind,” Tia said.

“The faces he was making, we’d never seen anything like it before, so we were taking pictures and videos.”

Pumpkin did not like the wind one bit, and he showed it with his sassy, unimpressed faces.

He really really did not like it, but his family couldn’t help but laugh at the faces he was pulling.

TIA STODDARD

Pumpkin was not shy at letting his family know he was not enjoying himself.

Pumpkin still does visit the beach, but he just has a dislike for the wind. He has been many times since this and does still enjoy himself.
