Peasy's goin' on a trip...
I'm going to visit Cams next week and I'm taking Peasy with me. I know kitties aren't generally fond of travel, but I'm gonna be gone for 2 weeks and I just can't leave her here that long. I bought her a pretty souped-up carrier and she likes to sleep in it sometimes, so that's a good sign. It's gonna be a big trip. Not only will we be in the car for about 15+ hours, but Peasy will be meeting Cams' kitties for the first time. I don't know that I'm really looking for advice, although, that would definitely be welcome. I think I just want everyone to cross their fingers that it goes well! :)
when Gary had to travel from London to Shropshire (about a 5 hour journey) to stop her from crying, which she always does when travelling, the driver put her carrier with the door facing the side of the van to make it all dark inside the carrier and she stopped crying straight away and apparently arrived at the end of the journey curled up asleep.
Not saying that Peasy will cry at all (Gary's just a wuss), but if she does, maybe that would help?
I hope all the kitties get along well. Exciting times!
I don't have any particularly helpful advice because I've never had a cat, but I hope the trip goes really well and really smoothly for you and Peasy and I hope she gets along swimmingly with Siobhan and Priskilla and you all have an amazing holiday!! : )
awww, poor Peasy....I'm sorry it's not going so well...she'll probably start to get used to Cam's place as soon as you're ready to leave....silly kitteh!
:( I hope things turn around soon for Peasy.
oh no! I'm so sorry it's not going as well as hoped.
Maybe it's just the strange cats that have freaked her out and she'll calm down soon. I hope so.
such a shame she didn't get on with Cam's cats.....but I'm pleased that she's ok now she's home.
I wonder how long the extra affection will last! When we moved Gary was so affectionate for the first week or so and now she's pretty much back to ignoring us (unless it's windy outside, she's afraid of the wind)
