I'm Back!

I'm pleased to announce that I have safely returned from Atlanta with my mother and her cat.

WHEW.

Has anyone ever driven 900 miles with one of these?



I HIGHLY recommend it.

NOT.

I have traveled 6 hours with one and I know that cat-traveling is not for the faint of heart.

That sounds like way too much fun.

My limit used to be 25 miles in EMERGENCIES to see the vet.

Now I can barely back out of the driveway.

I drove one hour with a cat in a carrier when we were going to our river home for a week. Thought it was the way to go.

Uh, big mistake.

The cat wailed heartbreakingly both ways and hid under the bed for an entire week while we were there.

Meow!

Hey, guys, I'm baaaaack!!! Just got the internet connected today - was supposed to be 2 days ago. Diane, be fair - Emma was not that bad! Yeah, she cried a lot the first day, but after a while we let her out of the carrier. Each day got better, cried at first then got quiet. And now she is very happy in her new apt. We even walked her some on her harness and leash.

Cheryl - the vet advised children's benedryl. I didn't give her much the first time, then Diane re-dosed her. I think she gave her the rest of the bottle the 2nd day!

Alix - she was wonderful in the motels! (Emma, not Diane)
