Casper the cat, named after the city of Casper Wyoming.

About 7 years ago while sitting in the living room I heard a meow sound outside.  I knew a cat was outside somewhere so went out with a flashlight.  It was in the grape vines that grow along the highway so I got some cat food to lure him inside.  It worked and he was a happy cat, a little scared.  He was so small you could hold him in the palm of your hand.  We were not quite sure what we would do with him as we were leaving for a trip in 3 weeks.  Figured he would go with us and our pop up tent trailer so every night we took him for a ride in the pick up truck kso he would get use to the drive.   

When we left he wasn't the bravest of travelers and usually stayed inside the tent trailer.  We had named him Casper because we thought we might just end up there.  We did and it was his favorite place.  The thunder and lightning in the KOA campground at Casper Wyo. did not phase him a bit.  And the flapping tent ends did not bother him either. 

He has been quite the traveling cat, having stayed 63 nights in RV parks, gone to at least 14 states and travelled over 14000 miles.  He loves to walk at night on his leash around the RVs.  And he even likes our new Funfinder Travel Trailer. He can sit at the window and watch the world go by.
