We’ve moved on again and I thought starting the blog back up would be the best way for me to share pictures and stories of what’s happening with us in LA.  As most of you know, we spent the last year living in Franklin, Texas with family.  I went to Massage Therapy school (since my training in Thailand doesn’t count in the US).  We packed up everything from the cabin we were living in and most of what was still sitting in the barn from 5 years ago!


Getting ready for a three day drive

Getting ready for a three day drive

We told Wesley is would take us three days and two nights to drive from Texas to California… he was not thrilled at the idea : )


This was pretty much my view on day one.  I followed Damon in the Volvo with Wesley and the two cats while he drove the Budget van.

The cats actually did GREAT on the trip.  Blackjack complained a little bit the first day…. meowing loudly and trying to get out of his cage, but Snowflake had no interest in moving around the car.

Back in 2010 when Snowflake was still skinny.

Super long and lean!

Blackjack is super long and lean!

I didn’t get any pictures of the “cat habitat” that Wesley thought up… but it was pretty cool.  We used mesh laundry bags and safety pins to section off the very back of the Volvo.  I could see through it, but the cats couldn’t get to the other side.  Although Blackjack did finally find a weak spot and made his way into the “human” section of the car.

We stopped on the way at Fort Stockton, TX and Tucson, AZ.  Both times we had to move furniture to get Snowflake out from under the bed… ARGH!  I’m ashamed to admit I have no patience when it comes to that.  Blackjack went into his carrier no problem.  I think he was looking forward to the adventure : )

We arrived at the Killion house and locked the cats into Wesley’s room the moment we got here.  We put our beds together, got out the “First Night Box” with sheets, pillows and blankets and called it a day.

How long should we keep the cats inside before we let them out Elmo’s cat door?  Wesley thinks one day… but I’m thinking at least a week.  I don’t want to be chasing pets around the neighborhood!
