This morning...7:45AM...all seven present and accounted for, and NONE of them happy.
It was a bittersweet moment. We've been working toward this goal of getting the cats ready to fly, and tonight's the night.
Poor Alfonse, the all black one, caught a claw in his eyelid this week, so he's traveling with antibiotic ointment for the quarantine people to put in.
I can't visit them in Australia till next Tuesday (which is Monday California time). Hope they make the flight alright, and aren't too freaked out by all the strangers.
I'm sure they all waved a fond farewell to Karen and crew at the Feline Bed and Breakfast. It really helped to have such friendly, caring people taking care of them all this time, I must say.
And so, now all that remains is for me to pack up this 'puter and head for the airport. Bittersweet time, and I'll be SO glad to get there and start getting settled.
Keep a good thought that my internet connection comes right up when I try it. We carefully noted all the changes that need to be made to my system to be sure that it does, but you know how THAT goes...plug and pray. I hope to be able to post something from Down Under soon.
And here's the good news: my friend, Margaret, is driving me to Sydney on the 30th to buy my new Bernina...now THAT's a thought to bring a smile to all our faces!
