Flat cats are nothing new among traveling pet bloggers. But now flat versions of Cat Scouts are traveling worldwide. So far only one Scout has visited Kitties Blue, but it was a most important Scout—Lisbeth’s boyfriend Charles. We have shared a few photos of him previously when Lisbeth opened the birthday gifts he sent for Astrid’s and her birthday. If you missed that post, My Boyfriend is Better than Your Boyfriend, you can see it here.
Many Scouts are doing fun and exciting things on their visits, but Lisbeth didn’t want to let Charles out of her sight. The most exciting thing he got to do was try out the new cat tree/condo on the catio. That was just about the only time they weren’t together. You can see a couple of other times (when he met Fiona and then Giullieta) in the collage below.
Though Charles visited as part of Cat Scouts, and he and Mauricio are great friends as well as troop and patrol mates at Scouts, Mau was not a good host. In the upper right photo, Mauricio is watching Lisbeth as she stares at Charles. That’s as nice as it got. When I tried to photograph them together, Mau kept knocking Charles over and even attempted to take a big bite out of him. (Definitely not good Cat Scout behavior on Mauricios part!) If it looks as though they are sharing the cat tree amicably, they are…but only because Mau is a flat cat in that photo as well. (The only reason Calista Jo is sharing the tree is because Charles and Mauricio are faux felines!)
Mauricio has not been visiting any of his Scout friends as yet. He will visit with the Worldwide Wildcat Troop Leader, Sammy Kimmell (onespoiledcat), beginning on Monday. From there he will begin his travels to visit some other Scouts. He wants those visits to be surprises so he’s not letting me share his itinerary here.
If you are following Charles’ adventures, you’ll be able to find him next at 15 and Meowing visiting Scout Sammy Pilch.
If you think all this traveling sounds like fun, you might want to join Cat Scouts. It’s just one of a variety of activities you can enjoy when you are a Scout. If you join now, you can participate in the Cat Scout Annual Carnival this weekend.
We all thank Charles for visiting and being such an excellent house guest. Lisbeth is heartbroken that he had to leave but thankful for all the wonderful memories. He is welcome to return anytime.

Charles is so much fun. I took him to feed fish at the fish hatchery today and I showed him where Emily Dickinson lived too. I am trying to keep the girl cats away from him, but it isn’t easy.
How fun that Charles came to visit you, even if he was flat 🙂
Looks like Charles had a nice visit! When we hosted Flat Scout Felix and Maggie, we didn’t take them to do anything very exciting either, but I think they enjoyed just getting to meet us and spend time with us. We know we sure did! We hope that Scout Charles will come visit us too! We would love to host him. And how special that Lisbeth got to meet her love. One day Sampy and Astrid will get to meet, in some form or fashion 🙂
Sampy sends 923948752093845 kisses to Astrid, and we all send lots of love!
Took me a minute to figure out what a “flat cat” was! HA! Cute! 😀
Yous guys sure looks like yous is having a great time!
Can’t wait for Mauricio’s trips!
We love flat cats!

Maybe Mau was just disappointed that the real Charles didn’t come to visit.
Hope our humans don’t make us flat cat versions.
Y’all really are super cute!
What a fun visit!!!
*we always remember this day*
Me and Einstein have been sliding around the mail chutes and hope to be home from our visit to Shoko in Canada soon. Love the “Flat Experience” MOL
Great visits cats
This is cute. The flats cat idea is fun and clever. ~xo~
Well, not all “Flat visits” turn out like we wish they might BUT at least Scout Charles got to see his sweetie on this trip!!! Sammy is looking forward to meeting Mau on Monday and we’ll see that after he visits us he goes on to his next “mystery visiting spot” ! I love the fact he’s doing a magical mystery tour…..that makes it more fun!
