Well, we are moving (again!). This will be the second time in my short life that mums and pops have packed up the car and taken me halfway across the US. We are going back to the place where it all began - Arlington, VA. Ollie and I lived most of our first year there, until mums had to go to grad school, prompting our move to Chicago.
Mums is so ambivalent about the move. On the one hand, she knows that we need to go back to our home now that she is done with school. Plus she is returning to a fantastic job that she studied for two years to get - this is her dream. Our apartment there will be great and I will have my own bathroom for the litter box, so there will be no more getting dust all over everything the humans own. :)
But mums is so sad to be leaving the place where Ollie spent the longest part of his life. She has so many good memories that are tied to this place. She thinks it's so curious how we develop totally new habits and hobbies depending on the place we live. But she also has bad memories of this place, since this is where Ollie got sick. So in that respect she wants to leave it. But she is so sad at the prospect of making the return trip with only one kitty cage in the car. It makes her sick. When Ollie was sick, she was so scared that it would come to this and she really hoped we would all make it back home.
Me, I am just enjoying the fact that the house is a mess, as they prepare for the movers to come. Everything is out of its usual place, so there is a whole new set of hiding places for me to find, even though we're still in the same apartment! I am NOT looking forward to the C-A-R, though. Bleech.
