Ever since T.H. texted me that it was “curtains” for us, I started gathering up and organizing my “stuff”. My most precious possessions. I took inventory and I pondered… “This must be what it feels like to be part of a Traveling Circus”. My most precious possessions include 3 dogs, 3 horses, a pony, an obstinate donkey and 6 barn cats.
Equine and canine…. easy to relocate.
Feline ……. not so easy.
In hindsight, I see that I should have consulted the experts at Barnum & Bailey on how to relocate the Big Cats. But since I am completely self-taught in life, here is what I learned from my experience.
Even though your kitties are tame and love to crawl into your truck while unloading groceries – and – can devour a whole package of sliced turkey in the time it takes you to go into the house and back out, they really hate it when you shut the door.
It’s best to not be lazy. Even though you only have 2 crates. Don’t be a dummy. Make 2 trips.
However, should you decide to proceed ….
make sure you cover your face while they are doing the Indie 500 inside your truck.
Make sure you are already comfortable driving without brakes.
Be prepared for them not to trust you for a few days. It hurts your feelings.
Then be prepared for life to return to normal.
If you can define “normal”.
And know ….. that home, to them, is wherever you are.
