Widely Traveled Wednesday

If you click on the link you will see a map of three things. Starting with the little (little!) town furthest west, Garden City, Kansas. That is where I started life as a feral cat. I will write about it some day. I don't even like to think about my humble beginnings because it makes me sad and scared. Life was not good. My Daddy changed all of that.
Next on the map you can see Kansas City. That's where I have lived for the last 4+ years. I love it here! I have everything a kitty wants. Except a Mommy who comes home every night.
The last place on the map is O Hi O. That's where Mommy has been working since Easter. That's a lot of sleeps. I miss her a lot when she is not here and so does the rest of our little family. When she came home last weekend there was a lot of talking going on between Mommy and Daddy. They had a pad of paper and made a list of pros and cons. I had no idea what this meant. I just knew they were very serious and trying to get their attention was hard. They told us that they had to make a very difficult decision. They had to decide if it was worth moving from our home in the middle of the U.S.A. where Mommy and Daddy have lived for many years and move all of us to O Hi O!

They have made their decision.

We are moving.

Oh. My. Cat.! ! !

That's very exciting Parker! A little scary too, but it sounds like your humans really thought through the decision.

Good luck with the move!

MomBean has moved wif kitties before and said they always slept through it. I don't know how they can sleep in a car, but that's just me.

That is very exciting! I have moved two times, and got to fly on an airplane. Moving is a big adventure! I think it will be worth it so you do not have to be away from your Mommy all the time.

Parker, that is so exciting! Well, a little scary, but I think you will like it much better when you can see your Mom every single night. Besides, it doesn't matter where you live, just that you are with your family!

Oscar the Puppy Cat said...

Most importantly, YOU'LL ALL BE TOGETHER AGAIN...ALL THE TIME! YEA!!!!! Congrats Parker, you're gonna have your Mommy to tuck you into bed from now on!

You gets to move? Wow that is going to be a big thing. But you can all be together as a family again.

You may need to take a break from blogging while you move, but keep us posted.

The Wayside Waifs will miss your mum.

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

That's a big decision but it sounds like they gave it a lot of thought and planning. I'm sure you'll love it though when you are reunited permanently with your mommy.

Riley & Tiki said...

We have never been to Lima, but O HI O is a furry nice place (if you get to the right airport) :) We hope you find a nice place to live and have a smooth move.

Ann M & the Kitties said...

Well, Parker, this is exciting. You will have Mommie home every night.

Mom, we moved Captain [the woofie] and the kitties from Florida to Atlanta, and then back to Florida 5 months later. Everyone did just fine in their carriers. The cats pretty much slept the whole time. It's who they are with, not where they are, that matters.

Henry Helton said...

I've never been to Lima either, but My Lady has plenty of times. It's only about an hour north of us is what she tells me. I think you will like O Hi O. It'll be okay.

Irishcoda said...

It's okay, Parker, two of us were dragged (er, moved) from Long Island to New Jersey and once we got used to the rocking of the car it wasn't so bad. Now we love it here!
