On the 13th of September the gulf coast got hit with a hurricane named Ike. Unbeknownst to me that's where I moved to when I left Nana's house. Well on the Thursday before the storm my mom frantically packed the car and we evacuated. She put me in my new carrier, NOT HAPPY! And I made sure for the first 2 1/2 hours of a 4 hour trip that she wasn't happy either. Can you say howl, scream and generally carry on. Not very becoming of a cool cat like me but hey I was stressed.
We showed up at Nana's house later that morning. I was very excited to see Nana again although I hid it pretty well, didn't want to appear uncouth. All of Nana's cats were still there, there's one named Tessie that is a hot dish but she wouldn't have anything to do with me. I don't understand it, at my house all the girls want to get to know me but she won't give me the time of day. I did get to climb trees and chase bugs and sleep with mom & dad so overall I had a pretty good time.
We came back on Sunday and it was really stressful, so again I let mom know I wasn't happy; all the way home. It was raining and there were trees and wires down and then the roads started flooding, mom was really nervous. Luckily we got through all that and made it home.
I had a hard time once we got home. I wasn't happy, I didn't want to come in the house and I didn't eat much. Mom was worried about me, but she came outside and spent time on the patio with me. She checked me out for bumps and injuries and petted and talked to me. Then we played for a little while and I felt better. Now I'm back to normal, I guess I was a little traumatized, but don't tell my friends I don't want them to laugh at me, I have a rep to protect.
