Friday Freakout - It's Really, Really Happening!

Here's me - it's my last photo relaxing on my beloved back porch.

Here's the best thing about the here and now. We are all together. Mommy came home yesterday in the big silver bullet. But...we all sense that something isn't normal. RED ALERT! ALL 4 OF THE P.T.U.'S ARE ON THE BACK PORCH! Mommy and Daddy are moving stuff around and cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. AND - Mommy says that we won't have any innernet after this morning! The innernet people are coming to take away our innernet box! AAAIIIEEE! It's the end of the world as I know it! I am afraid that I can't post again till the middle of next week unless Mommy takes me to a coffee shop that has wireless to let you know our progress. I don't really want to go to a coffee shop - I don't even like coffee and I just want life to be like it is now. I am not happy and I have to admit I am a little scared. Mommy says it will be OK and that we need to relax and trust Daddy and her. She has never lied before, I trust her. Kitties - remember me in the next few days and maybe Mommy can update you all on what we're doing. This is hard. I love my home, I love Kansas City. But I love my family more - I guess I will post to all of you wonderful kitties from O Hi O!
Smooches! AAAIIIEEE!
Mommy here - it's a very emotional time for Parker and family. 13 years in one city is hard to say good-bye to. The packers come Monday, they load us on Tuesday and Parker, Puff, Powder, Rudy and Diamond Doggy head out with Daddy and I in Daddy's truck on Wednesday morning - EARLY! All kitties are going to the evil V.E.T.'s for travel meds this morning. Daddy and I promise to make this move as stress-free as possible for our fur-kids. They are our #1 priority. Parker's ability to blog will be spotty at best, non-existent, at worst. And, Mr. Hendrix, if you think about it around 3:00 p.m. next Wednesday, wave to Parker, we'll be by Dayton, heading north on I-75. We'll be waving toward you! Everykitty, Thank you for all of your sweet, encouraging comments, it's meant a lot to Parker and to us.
We'll see you from O HI O! SOB!
One last time...

Bye-Bye KC!

You will love O HI O!!!
Before such a big change it is scary. But once it is done you will wonder why it scared you so much to begin with. And you will realize that the new place is even BETTER than the old one! And all the stuff to EXPLORE!!!
You will have a great time!
Safe travel everybody, we will be eagerly awaiting your posts from the new home.

Good luck on your big move, this will be an exciting adventure for you. I will be anxiously awaiting your return so I can hear everything! Don't worry, you will make many good new memories in your new home. The important thing is you will all be together. Travel safely!

Safe travels everyone!

Peach Man said...

Good luck Parker, you will be fine. Just remember, as I always say, home is where you lose your collar (and they still love you). It's hard to move and be in a new place. You will settle in and have lots and lots of fun when all boxes open up and there's all the stuff you forgot you had!
Me n' Simone will be purrin' for you guys.

Henry Helton said...

Parker, I hope your trip goes well. O HI O will be more beautiful with you here! About a half hour after you drive through Dayton, wave to your left at Exit 83, that is where I live! I will wave in that direction all day long so I won't miss you.

Tyler said...

Every one at our house is purring for you very very much. Well, mommy says she would purr if she could but she'll definately put you all in her prayers. By the time you get this note, you'll already by there. So maybe we should be saying welcome to your new state and new home. Hope you settle in quickly. Remember it's okay to hide if you get scared. Cookie and I spent a whole month under the covers whenever we heard the littleest noise. Everything sounded like those vixhus deers when you first move. Now, years later, we can't even remember when this place seemed scary.

Kimo & Sabi said...

Safe travels and good luck at yer new home!

TT said...

Good lucks with your big move. I hopes you gets lots of treats when you gets there.

BTW, I tagged you for a proverb meme when you gets back online.

Have a safe trip .... once that innernet is back on for you, it will feel like you have never left. I promise!

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Parker my sweet perfect furrrrrend! I will be thinking about you and your famble until I hear from you again...stay cool and have some catnip:)

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Hi Parker. I like Rosies idea...nip may be the answer during the move.

It is so stressful to move especially to a whole new town. We are sending purrs and warm fuzzy thoughts that your journey will be as peaceful as possible and that your mom and dad takes lots of kitty treats for you and some people treat for themselves on the journey.

Can't wait to hear from you once you are settled into O Hi O.

China Cat & Willow said...

We have never moved from our house so we are purring and praying that your move goes well. It does sound kind of scary. Your mom and dad will take good care of all of you. And we're looking forward to seeing what O Hi O will be like when you get there!


Purrrrrrrs, China Cat & Willow
