I know I've mentioned my "girls" and their various escapades a few times... but this was certainly the biggest adventure for them yet! The fact that they were coming on the plane with us was a fascination for many people we talked with the move about. I guess you don't see (or hear) cats on planes very often. They actually did very well - better than I expected. They meowed almost all the way to the airport (over an hour's drive), but after that - barely a peep. Piper just let out a couple of yelps when we ran through some turbulence - but I think I heard some humans do that, too!
Here's a quick photo tour of the "Piper & Zoë Take San Diego" journey:
Zoë says: "I'm ready to go, Mom! (But that flash is awfully bright....)"
Made it through security (no pat downs - whew!) - now we're just waiting to get on the plane
Piper was wide-eyed at all the goings on
Ready for take off!
One flight down - now enjoying a ride on a moving walkway in Chicago
What to do with your cat when you have to use the airport loo (in case you were wondering)
Second flight down - we've arrived in California!
Settling right in at the new place - Piper finds her spot
And of course, Zoë's found hers, too!
