We Made It!

Emma was less than thrilled about the roller-coaster roads in the Yukon, but she managed. Here's a clip of her on the last leg of the journey from Tok (pronounced Toke) to Anchorage.

I'm facing about three days in the cat with Monkey. My main hope is she doesn't yowl the entire time. Secondary hope is not pooping in the back seat.
Her, not me. I called dibs on the front seat already.

Leeann--
Emma rode pretty well most of the trip (just napped on the bedding we'd put on top of the load), but the rough roads through the Yukon Territory and much of Alaska had her pretty agitated. You might try putting a pad of foam rubber under the Monkey's bedding to minimize the vibration.

I've made three long road trips with two different cats. My experience has been, caging the cat will drive both you and the cat nuts, so you just have to let the cat wander. They get fussy at the start of the day but later settle down and sleep. During the time the cat's fussy, it's the passenger's job to keep it out of the driver's space. Definitely, don't let Monkey climb up onto the dashboard or else he'll wander over and block the driver's view.

Emmacat had it so rough. Big human hands to pet her whenever she headed to the floorboard. She had y'all trained!

I got mine trained. Any packaging---be it mint candy wrapper or potato chip wrapper, and Sallycat thinks I am eating her greenies treat. All I have to do is walk toward the garage to get her claws off my leg. How dare I pretend to eat her favorite treat!

Bob is headed to THE Alaska State Fair today! Surely, there he will find blog fodder...

come on. post something. you are sitting in a pretty state in much cooler weather...don't you like it up there? do you want to retire there someday? what does Alaska remind you of? do they like outsiders? isn't everyone from everywhere? are there lots of tourists in mobile homes? Talk to us, man!
