Hi friends, what a special time here on catster, one minute we are all sad and saying our good byes and the next we are all thankful that our voices were heard and our beloved catster/dogster will be saved! keeping all of our paws crossed!

So now that the mood is different here for us we wanted to update you all on our new home and us leaving California...so here goes

We sold our house here last weekend and just in time too! we actually had several offers so Mom and Dad decided on the one that was the easiest not the most money because the time was running out. They chose 2 guys that come in will be doing some upgrades and then will resale it...it makes Mom sad but she knows that it is time to move on and let someone else live in this house. Since Mom and Dad paid off this house they needed the money by the time our new house is finished so they can pay cash for it and not have the house payment...that was the plan from the beginning.. now our house is in escrow, will close on March 17th...

Yesterday was a happy day hearing we won and catster will be saved and happy for us because a lady called from the title company to let Mom know our house will be completed on March 20th, now Mom and Dad have to drive over to Arizona on the 20th, they have to do the walk through with the builder on the 21st in the morning, then the afternoon they have to go to the title company to sign all the papers. The bad part is not only do we have to stay here and the pet sitter will come to take care of us, but Mom and Dad won't get the keys to the house until the 26th...well now guess what Mom and Dad will be home with us again, now we have to find out how we can get the keys.They wanted to spend time in the house and they wanted to take things over especially for us while we wait for the movers to bring our things to us. Not sure what they will do now.

We have to be out of our this house by April 30th, so the crunch is on for Mom and Dad, well Dad more than Mom because Mom has been doing things for a few months now but not Dad he is waiting to the last minute...Not a happy Mom!!!!

As the time gets closer for us to leave we may not be around, we sure hope we don't miss anything...once our things are packed we won't be on computer at all, not until we get connected once again.

Mom sure hopes we all will be OK once again with them being gone but Mom told me because I am the oldest that they will leave the 20th and return on the 22nd...fast trip so we won't be alone for too long. I will just hang out in Moms closet in her room with Zeke. The others will be in the rest of the house. So much stress so much to do, but in the end we can all get used to living in a new house and surroundings, soon we will all be able to relax....that will be a good day...sigh!!!

so that is the update from here, we sure hope all of our friends are staying warm and safe with it snowing in the south and east...

Hugs to all of our friends, we are so happy to be here, we never left!

Xena and family

Hi Xena,

Wow, your parents will be busy. Our Mom also hates doing things at the last minute. It's nice that your parents put you in charge while they are gone, because you're the oldest. I bet your new house will be nice. There'll be so many new things for you to explore. I think you're moving a bit closer to where we live. Cool.

Send my love to my wonderpurr Zeke please.

Oh yeah it will be busy around here, this weekend Mom is taking down our outdoor enclosure, she hates to take it down so soon but she says it is a good time to put it away in the box so we can have it at our new home.

Oh yes Meitzi we will be closer to you...I will tell Zeke for you Meitzi, he is asleep now taking his late afternoon nap in the window.

Harley you are right, we need to nudge the Dad so we don't have a map Mom but a happy Mom...Oh I think I need to go back into my closet for a short time...talk later friends.

Good luck with the new house, Xena! Make sure that when your pawrents do the walk-through with the builder, they put down in writing any additional work that needs to be done.

Congratulations on the sale and all I hope it all goes smoothly for you. We had delays at the end of our build but luckily we had somewhere to go. LOL the humans even brought a tent as backup just in case things really went belly up. (Plan C)

Purrs that evfurrything goes smoothly with the move and the sale! It sounds pretty complicated and stressful, but sounds like your mom has it all figured out. Enjoy your new home in Arizona! Exciting!

Thank you friends, Mom says all plans can change because most of the time things don't go as smooth as they think...today Mom reserved the van we all will be riding in...so everyday things get done and one step closer...Mom says she wishes it was all over and we were there already, but no house yet, almost done...we don't have another plan, with us not leaving until the end of April we know that the house will be done and waiting for us to come move in...we will have to wait for our movers to come not sure how long that will take, so mom bought an air mattress for Mom and Dad to sleep on and she is making sure we all have our beds, heating pads etc so we will be happy, just hope she takes one of our cat trees for us...

That sounds crazy busy Xena! It might be fun sleeping with the pawrents on the air mattress - be sure to keep any claws tucked away so you don't pop it:) We wish you peace and happiness!!

Love,
Benson & Furmily

It is good that you can move in and know the other house is sold though. That is what Momma says that when we finally move from here, she wants to find a house first that we can move to, so that people won't be walking through here scaring us. It will be a few years yet, but Momma is thinking ahead.

What an exciting time for you all! It sounds crazy busy, but it will also be a fun adventure driving to your new house and exploring all the new nooks and crannies! We will look forward to seeing pictures of you all in the new place!

Love, Tully

Wow, it so so exciting for you all that the new house is almost ready for you to move in! And that your pawrents got your old house sold before they have to pay for the new one. Sounds like your mom is very organized and on top of things. We look forward to seeing photos of the new house when it is all finished & you all are settled in. Mom says we will be doing that sometime in the next 1-1/2 to 5-1/2 years. She says it will be a lot of work (for her) but will be an exciting adventure for all of us--we kit kats aren't so sure about that-MOL!
