Cats on a Plane

You’ve seen Snakes on a Plane, now get ready, prepare yourself and buckle up for the ultimate in aviation adventure…
“Cats on a Plane!“

The vet had given us kitty xanax but they both freaked out during the trial run last week. Sushi became a total bitch, hissing almost continually at anyone and anything for an entire 24 hours. In complete and utter contrast to Cooper who regressed to a little baby and whined and cried unless you held him. I had to carry him around with me all day like an oversized handbag.

With this drama, we opted to not drug the cats at all and they were actually really good on the plane. Silent. Petrified. And so ecstatic to make it to Oklahoma after 10 hours of trains, planes, and automobiles. So were we.

So glad to hear it went well. Possibly the most perilous stage of your trip... :)
