Thankfully, I won't be going up north with mom and dad. As I'm sure I've mentioned before I don't travel too well. I can't be locked in that damn carrier, especially for that long of a trip, and when let loose in the car I roam and try to sit in places that would get them pulled over for sure. Besides, it isn't safe for me (even though that's how I came down here).
Dad asked one of the ladies he works with if she would stop by and take care of me while they're gone. I'd say I can take care of myself, but we felines were put on this planet to be served by humans, and that's just the way it is.
Mom's been busy working out their "itinerary", arranging visits, planning stops, and working out the details of their route. Sounds like a lot of work if you ask me. Why not just stay home, soaking up the sun, being pampered?
Let them come to you, I say. There's always next year...
