Photo Hunters - Road

When I saw that this week's Photo Hunters theme was Road, it made me remember our move from Kansas City to O Hi O. It was a big adventure for us that we did not care for very much...
Here are the movers packing up my toys.

And here's Diamond in the back seat saying "Bye-bye Kansas City!"
We were in the back, drugged and stuffed in our PTU's, yeah...good times...

But it was worth it, right Parker? After all, you DO love O Hi O! Right?

Perhaps if you hadn't been in the PTU and "under the influence" you could have exhibited a little road rage...

I love the picture of Diamond! What a cutie:)

Tracey and Huffle said...

Oh yeah, sounds like a great time. Not!

Fin said...

Wait was that huge truck just for your toys? My parents are really cheap!

Angus Mhor said...

They had to drug you for the road trip? I guess you'd have been howlin' the whole way, eh? Me, too! Diamond looks like he's havin' a great time..but, then, he's a dog.

The Whiskers and Purrs Gang said...

WOW!!! It taked a big ol' truck as big as that for your toys? Dang...we wanna come live with you, Parker!

Very truly yours,

Parker, we've never moved before...all of us came to the Island after the beans were here...but from what we've heard...we think move is a bad four-letter word!

Looks like Diamond got the best end of that deal. Drugged and stuffed in PTU's what were the beans thinking. ~S,S & C

Sometimes I am so glad we are not dogs. Look at poor Diamond, having to wear a horrible harness. We would FLIP OUT if anyone ever did that to us.

All of you except Diamond Doggie! I think all dogs must love to go on car rides :-D

I hope all of you have a good weekend.

It's not good when you get stuffed in a PTU. Hope they never make you do the M word again.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

At least dey brawt yoor toys and Ohio is not so bad. We drove fur almost an hour in da middle of da night...wish we had been drugged.

Evie/VampyVictor said...

That is a huge truck!! Wow you must have a heap of toys.. but then all the parents things are toys too izn't they? ;)
Moving is so yukky! My Sister wouldn't leave the room of the new house for a week!!

Maddy said...

Cheers

Monty Q. Kat said...

Um, Parker? I'd appreciate it if you...um...didn't stop by today...it's not very uber...

Momma thinks Diamond is so pretty.
We think you like O Hi O, right? You have such a pretty house and nice deck!

Aoise said...

Movin sounds horrible. All that dwugging, get stuffed into PTU's ect etc. The good bit is that all your toys fitted into the twuck !!

Tesla said...

DRUGGED?! Ohhh nooooos!

Daisy said...

I'll bet that truck was only just barely big enough for all of your toys!

Moki said...

Now thats a long road trip!

meemsnyc said...

Oh no moving must not have been fun in a PTU!!

Evergreen loves Kilroy said...

Ugh. Moving. UGH!

If it's any consolation, it sounds like your beans are very responsible movers. Last time I got moved, I was stuffed in a large-ish PTU with Hannah, and mommy put us in the front seat of her car and kept trying to close the door but our PTU stuck out too far and she was like "I AM NOT LEAVING MAH BABEHS BEHIND!" and we were all like, "Stop shutting the door on our PTU, ma!"

GRRRETA said...

An entire moving van for cat toys...that sounds about right.

Shawie said...

that's nice thing to remember:) good, old memories!

michico*Adan said...

Road connects past and future~!!!!!
I love the feeling you show to me!

Lux said...

Traveling sucks, but driving in a car probably beats walking that distance! ;-)

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

Oh yeah... I hate being in the car. I always wee in my carrier when they put me in it.

One-Eyed Jack said...

I dunno. I think the drugs would have helped. When my OTW moved me and Grumpybutt up to the North Pole, she just shoved us in the back of our gold machine with a litter box a bowl of food (the water all spilled) and our cat tree. For two DAYS! It was so upsetting me and Grumpybutt hid in the tree the whole time. He NEVER sat near me before Not even close! And there was barely room for us both in that treehouse! (she did sneak us into the hotel room with her though, and boy did we have to WEE by then! We were NOT going in the box in the scary machine!)

(PS. Somecat here wants me to say MeARRR to you from it, but please don't encourage it!)
