Our travel encounters usually involve weather, construction and traffic. This trip our travel challenge was a little different.
The day we were to leave my aunt and uncle's, I heard a meowing in the woods. A man cutting the grass said he thought it was a catbird. I'm thinking, please be a catbird. But just in case I called. Across the road and out of the woods streaked a kitten, just as a car came down the road. My heart stopped. The kitten raced across the lanes, luckily before the car reached him and landed at my feet.
We tried rescue--filled up. And the neighbors--it wasn't theirs.
Like so many other kittens, apparently he'd been dumped.
If there had been another option, we would have taken it, but there was no way he could have survived in the woods. So we packed him up and he went to central Illinois with us then back to NC. Let me just say here, that the HH has always been great about rescues and this was no exception. He said the minute he saw that kitten streaking across the road he knew he'd be coming with us to NC.
My main concern traveling with him was would we be able to get a hotel room that would take a kitten. My sister had made us reservations at Days Inn. When we inquired about their pet policy, we found out that all they required was a ten dollar pet deposit. Whew. I was extremely relieved as I had visions of sleeping in the car with the kitten.
I'm going to put him on petfinder.com but we both think we've got another cat.
Okay, it's your turn. What's been going on while I've been gone?
