cats on a cool screened porch

Saturday, September 18th, 2010 by

Two cats on the porchWe (well, really I) were so worried they’d have trouble adjusting to a 3,000 mile move to a new house that we 1) rented an RV to move them in, so they wouldn’t be freaked out by airports and changing planes; 2) found someone, namely a friend of my good friend Lin, to drive the RV here from North Carolina for us; 3) spent nearly a week in said RV with them as we drove it from Castro Valley, CA to Chapel Hill, NC, with all the hilarity and close-quarters messiness you can imagine that would provide, and 4) rented hotel rooms at both ends of the trip so as to be certain they wouldn’t escape and be lost to us as we loaded up our belongings into an enormous truck and then unloaded them at the other end.

SO……….here they are, or two of them at least, looking really scared, right?  Right.  Chillin’ on the porch, watching the birds and deer that float by outside.  Sniffing the interesting-smelling air of a promising North Carolina morning.  Gus and George, right to left, cool as cucumber cats, posing for pictures.

Now all we have to do is find some land and build a house.

    Kevin- I remember the white long- cat we cared for in the house at Southgate while her Sgt. was in the hospital. Do you remember “Nosey Parker,” the neighborhood stray (opportunist?) that kept coming around? I thought of you over the years and am thrilled you seem happy and successful. Millie lives in NY state and is quite successful herself. I have had several cats over the years and am glad for the 2 or 3 times a year that I get to cat and housesit for a week or two. Feel free to e-mail but don’t feel obligated – I’ll understand. I hope the rest of your life is blessed with happiness and good health.

    Your former housemate,
    Susan Ainley
