Slow Ride

So, we're off to PA and Western NY to attend a friend's wedding and visit the kids' great-grandmother. We'll be staying at a hotel for a few nights, and then with some family before we head back home.

(Actually, this is a scheduled post, so we're already there. Or, I've already died from the stress, trauma, and anxiety. In which case, this is a message from the grave. You can have my cats.)

I'll just take this opportunity to say that I do not understand the minds of parents who willingly go on vacation with young children. It is an oxymoron, people.

I'll be back next week. Most likely, a changed (read, FRAGILE) woman.

In the meantime, you can wager along with me on how long cats can stay alive with one bowl of food and water. My guess is just long enough to keep on annoying the shit out of us me once we get home.


  1. I'd rather take the cats on a road trip than small children. Good luck buddy.

  2. ROAD TRIP! Does the baby always have to crawl along behind? Next time you might try tying the baby to the roof of the car with the rest of the luggage. The best part of any road trip is jumping between the beds in the hotel.

  3. I remember when my friends took their toy poodle on a drive from San Francisco to LA to visit me. Stupidest idea ever.

    This is what my mom used to do to us kids on road trips to get us to shut up:

    If we got annoying, she'd point out some ugly dirty looking driver and say, "if you guys don't behave, I'll sell you to that family over there. You want that?!?" Shut us up real good.

  4. When vacationing it's always best to store your feline companions on the bottom tray of the freezer where it's the coldest. And of course use an airtight bag, we wouldn't want freezer burn. :)

    PS: Some pets are resistant to the cozy comforts of a freezer bag. To relax them use a standard carpenters hammer. Applying the hammer liberally to your pets face will gently, yet abruptly, lull your precious into a deep and restful sleep.

    Enjoy your vacation!

  5. Should have tied the cats to the back of the car so they get exercise while you travel.
