The only downside of going on holidays is saying goodbye to the cats. Fortunately, no cattery for them as they stay with my daughter who has two cats of her own, Arielle and Malai.
In fact, Malai is Samurai’s brother but you could not find two more different looking cats. Samurai looks just like his mother, with his thick, short grey fur in contrast to Malai’s dark long haired coat. Could there be more than one father, I wonder?
Fortunately, all the cats get on well together. Malai in particular is very social and likes to play with Samurai and Mischa.
So I have packed the car and hope I have remembered everything; lets see … some food, biscuits, treats, beds, rugs, favourite toys, kitty litter and brush. That sounds about right and now to get them in their cat cages for the one hour car trip.
Samurai quite likes to get into his cage but Mischa needs a gentle push!
Neither of them likes travelling in the car very much and we soon hear a few protesting miaows which I am sure translate into “Are we there yet?”
By the time we left the cats were settled in with only a little bit of hissing happening, mainly by the two girls. I know they will be very well looked after and spoilt while we are away, so now we go home to an empty house to pack. I miss them already.
