Do I smell- treats??

I'm so proud of my little pumpkin, I just have to share! laugh out loud We went on a 7 hr drive to our new home on Friday and survived to tell about it. big laugh

I tried to medicate her with a sedative from the vet, but either it didn't get in her mouth (dang pill as so small from being quartered) or it just didn't affect her because she was *not* sleepy. However, after the first hour of silent meowing (seriously, how pitiful is that?) and trying to dig her way out of the carrier, she settled down. At rest stops she would get up and stretch (in her carrier, I did not let her out), meow some more as if to ask "are we there yet, mom?".

In the new apartment, I kept her in the bathroom while the move was going on, and she promptly used the potty (yay!). Then hid in her "hut" that she loves until that evening.

Today she inspected every inch of the new place and has decided it will do. big grin

I was so nervous she would freak out on the drive, and she was so good! So proud of my baby!!
