Gina I loved it! Those pictures really made me smile.
I'm sorry I didn't know about Buttons:( It's wonderful how him and the kitties snuggled.
I have to say that these are my two favorite pictures:
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b127/mystichild/f1e77e83.jpg
Crayola sure seemed to enjoy the snow!

And this one:

What wonderful pictures! It sure is nice to see pictures of Buttons although he didn't finish the trip with you, he was with you in your heart! All of your Ark are beautiful and Crayola sure does love his snow! Once again you are welcomed to New England! Dear Gina, may this be a wonderful new beginning for you! I hope that you will find all the happiness that you deserve!

Wow, you hauled all these animals across the country in that little car. This is amazing, youíre a brave girl.
I counted 13 cats. Werenít you afraid that they would jump out when you had to stop?
How did you transport all of them when you had to spend the night? Did you have a litter box in the car? Congratulations on arriving safe at your destination.
All your critters are so adorable. Iím especially in love with Chance.

This must be Gina's frozen Ark

Awwwww, thanks for all these great pics, Gina!!! What a huge adventure that was!! I must say I would never dare this!!
I love the pics of your ark, especially this one:
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b127/mystichild/1be097cb.jpg
and I got the LES when I saw the sweet pics of little Buttons...
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b127/mystichild/b0aceb8f.jpg

I asked it in the other thread too, but maybe it is better here: how on earth did you manage to let all your cats go potty???? And what did you do with your ark during the nights??

I just looked through all of your pics, what a wonderful trip. (makes me want to travel across america again). Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us.

I get a kick out of the pictures of your car, especially since I know what is inside of it too. It just looks so funny, a tiny car with a huge pile of moving stuff on top & then to think of what is inside too. :p How neat!

yuppers, am doing very well! just can't wait until I move into my own apartment (that accepts my whole ark) next week!! weehoo!

furrysmother, you're so sweet for saying that again. as said in my emails, I think you as of my dear mom too!

This must be Gina's frozen Ark...

1] well, at first I wasn't really worried because everytime I go over 50 miles anywhere (a lot), I always take at least two or three with me, they each took their turns and none of them have attempted to run out but then... I worried - all of them in, in a long, longest trip. :eek: but gave in faith and see as I trust each of them. . all the way, not one of them would point their nose outside except as said in another thread, clayton thought it was okay to jump out after I took him out to pose by nebraska sign! you can see us there in the picture. :D

2] I take three cats each time out & in, (four times total each way) into the room and back to the car. whispers knows to stay on my shoulder when I carry the three in, (the 13th). ;)

3] of course. it was behind me, on the bottom of the floor. so when a cat goes, I could smell it better, and clean it up quick at the next gas station since it's a travel (small) litterbox. :o

and that picture kinda makes me sad.. that was sitting for an hour and half at the battle creek rest area where I was crying over my little warm buttons. after that, walked crayola out to bathroom for last time, wow - all snowy!

2] And what did you do with your ark during the nights??

1] as mentioned, a litterbox on the floor - they would go whenever they want to. I'm glad I had to stop at the gas station as often as needed to! :)

2] with me!! you see the picture above of all cats cuddling together...well, the caption should really say "mommy! why are you putting us in an ilgoo!?!" that pictures was taken after I walked forth/back from friend's house, putting them back in. as you can see the windows are iced inside - chilly air goes through because of the ropes tied up between the doors - deadly too cold for my ark! :eek:

this roadtrip was really a challenging adventure for me, it was so much fun, to learn and experience so many new things. this enrich experience have changed my ark too, in a very, very good way. they even get along better, adjusting the kids & would now share food so closely together..unbelievable too. wow, I have one of the proud ark!

all of them crawling creepy inside huh? ;) :p

well, I (and my ark)'d be glad to answer more questions! :cool:

I do sincerely wish you a very,very happy new future, you have been through so much and you deserve so much happiness in your new life. I am so happy you found an apartment that will take all of your Ark!

Thank you! I think of you and worry over you as my own daughter.

You were very brave to travel all that way alone with your Ark, but I am so happy that you made it safely and that it was such a wonderful experience for you.

I just know that you will have so many good things waiting for you in this part of the country!!

You must have had So Much FUN!!!!

Wow!! This is amazing!!! SUPER CUTE pictures!! I love the huddled kitty patch in the back seat! CUTE! :D

Gina, I haven't been around much, can you (or someone else, if that's OK) update me as to where you went, how long you were gone for and how come all the fuzzies had to come too??

Can't wait to read more!

Hugs,
Kelly :)

P.S. I'm so sorry about your sweet rattie. :( I'll go search for what happened..so you don't have to relive it. ((hugs))

I can do that! Gina has moved, lock, stock, paw, tail and barrel EAST! She is continuing her education - and her life, in snowy, snowy, Rochester, NY. She stopped by and we had dinner together (check the Mini Meeting thread over in Meetings) on her way back from a holiday gathering in NH, when she HAD to pass through Massachusetts anyway!

How great you got to meet her!

Thanks, Karen!! I just found her other thread...but you did a great job! :)

How great you got to meet her!

It was lots of fun! But between my lack of ASL - I know maybe three phrases and can fingerspell really slowly - and the fact that I often talked too fast for her to lipread, we covered two sheets of paper with our conversation, though it wouldn't make sense to anyone else, because there was lots that didn't make the paper, too! :)

12-29-2005, 11:46 PM
Gina, my little gang is glad that you and your ark made it! The pics are wonderful too, and it looks like Crayola had fun in the snow!
I tried to count the ktties in one picture, but, I lost count at three! lol!

(EDIT) - Did you have any car sick kitties or puppy? I know that I would have to stop every half hour to let Jesse run around!

Congrats on your long, long, journey!
Steph and the gang

ps. I am terribly sorry about Buttons (((((HUGS)))))

You are an amazing person!
I wish you all the good luck in the world! You deserve it!!!
I hope you find an apartment soon so you all can settle down in a place of your own!
I'm so sorry about Buttons :(

and sheets has became all green! (we used her merry green pen) :p karen, did they (or at least the card) made any sense to paul? :D

furrykidsmother/corinna, isn't it wonderful how pet talk have gotten us closer! it was very nice & special to have both of you checking in while being on the road all the way. :)

quoted by jesse_3
Did you have any car sick kitties or puppy?

hmm, good question, nope. I checked on everyone in back of the seat and in front too while driving and at some stops, they all looked great. since I can't hear, so I pet & put all my hand on everyone's throat and hopeful feeling any purrs! that's how I can ensure everyone is happy! :cool:

poor jesse, obviously jesse is one of energitic bunny! well, since driving so much, crayola got to get out at least at every about four hours. . .(every gas station & houses).

I've gotta say this again, thank you all for who were being part of this trip! (((:)))) hugs ~
