None of the animals are coming with us (for some reason, the airline balked at letting me put the greyhounds under our seats, haha) so we're in the process of making sure that everyone is going to be taken care of.
Even though the kittens could have used another week with me to get over their URIs, another foster mom came and picked them up from our house Monday evening. I was sad to see them go, but with the looming vacation, I needed to be sure that they were somewhere that was not the shelter until they were healthy again. I will miss the little ones! Kittens are a lot of work, but I found it so rewarding when they started responding to me. I feel like I pushed them out the door as adoption-ready as they can possibly be, so my job there is done. *sniffle*
The dogs are going to be kenneled at the Golden Bone Pet Resort. This also happens to be the place that donates space for the adoptable greyhounds of Steel City Greyhounds, so both dogs are at least somewhat familiar with it, and are content enough while they are there. (Though of course they would rather be with us.) The two times we've had to board them they stayed there. Who knows, they may enjoy the heated walkways so much that they don't want to come home! Anyway, we will take them over there later this afternoon.
|We're doing WHAT?|
|Moo-ooom! I want to go to Jamaica too!|
We don't travel very often, and it's mostly because it's difficult to leave the animals behind. I always worry about them, and worry that they will think that they've been abandoned. That Charlotte will get sick while we're gone. That there will be thunderstorms and Argos will be afraid and alone. Which is why I'm taking a deeeeep breath, and putting it all out of my mind.
I will not post this week and weekend, but I'm sure that I will when we get back next week. (It's not a long trip.) I'll talk to everyone then!
