Can you believe it has been just over a year since I last posted here on my blog? A lot has happened during those 12 months and I hope you have seen some of my updates on social media about our move from California to Texas. In case you are new here, don’t follow me on social media or missed my posts there, here’s a recap.
Travel Prep for our Move from California to Texas
Last year, I left off telling you about how we were getting ready to take off on an adventure in a travel trailer. Mom was taking her time letting us get used to it and Echo hadn’t even been out in it yet. Well, mom’s apprehension about how scared … Continue reading →
Hi furiends. It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update and I finally convinced mom to take a few minutes. If you are on my mailing list and read my last newsletter, you know what has been keeping mom so busy. We are moving again and our house is a disaster! Mom seems to be going off in so many directions and nothing is getting completed. Stuff is everywhere! Is that the way humans normally work? Fortunately, she hasn’t messed with my favorite place to hang out — my stroller.
Not only are we moving but I think mom is going through a crisis. She says she is just fulfilling a lifelong … Continue reading →
Whether you are a seasoned veteran traveler or getting ready to head out on your first trip, I bet you’ll find lots of useful information on traveling with cats in these posts from some of my best pals. Oh, and there’s even a post written by mom for her Savvy Pet Care blog. It stars me, of course!
Planning – Before You Go
Every successful trip starts with a great plan. This is especially important when traveling with cats. Rules are different for us than for humans. Here are things to take care of before you go.
In case you haven’t been following along, I’ve been telling you about my road trip this past week. You can read Part 1 here and Part 2 here. I especially liked yesterday’s Part 3 post about my Missed Adventure.
When last I left you, in Road Trip – Part 1, it was shortly after 6 am on Wednesday and we were on the road to Chandler, Arizona, and BlogPaws 2016.
I sang mom a tune or two when we first started but then got tired and just hung out. I tried to nap but it just didn’t seem to happen. So many strange noises outside and the motion of the car did NOT lull me to sleep.
Mom only made two quick stops along the way so we arrived at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler before noon. At first, mom thought she was going the wrong way. The hotel is down a narrow, two lane road kind of out in the middle of nowhere, or so it seemed.
Whew! What a wild week. I don’t even know where to start so I guess I’ll just start at the beginning!
Some of you probably know that mom wanted to take me to BlogPaws last year but she felt she didn’t get me out enough, then I had that awful experience with the woofies next door. She was worried that I would be too afraid with all the dogs around and boy, am I glad she made that decision after what I saw the past few days.
This year, we worked at it much more diligently. I started spending lots of time out in the yard once the weather got better and I really got into that. Our yard is totally fenced and mom was always out with me so she let me out without a leash! Woohoo! I didn’t even worry too much … Continue reading →
I teased you a little yesterday with my selfies but it really wasn’t that hard to guess where I was. Most of you figured out that I was getting more car time in preparation for my trip to the BlogPaws conference in June. Mom had errands and it was a beautiful, sunny day — purrfect for a family outing. Well, not the whole family.
