Packing

Well Mom finally loaded the pictures onto the computer! She even took new ones of us in our new home! But we'll get to those later. Here are some pictures of us at the old place, helping with the move...

First I had to energize with a little sun and bird watching:

While I was doing that, Harlie helped Mom take inventory of her yarn stash:
And then she helped her try to squish it down so all her yarn fit in one container:My first job was to start assessing boxes. I had to figure out how many we needed, if the sizes were adequate and then decide what should go in each one. Naturally they were all tested for quality as well. And we all know there's only one way to do that...

Harlie checked under the recliner for lost toys and other treasures. I stood next to the recliner to take anything she handed out, to give a high-five when she needed encouragement, and of course to wrestle the heck out of her paws. I mean, could you leave these paws alone?
Here I'm trying to move us along into the next room, but Harlie wants to make sure Dad doesn't forget is XBox 360. I'm pretty sure we were never in danger of that though.
One of the most difficult jobs was counting and organizing the books. It may have been easier if Harlie jumped in and helped instead of just meowing orders from the top of the desk. Final book count: approximately 1.3 squillion.
Packing is hard work so we needed to rest up often. Here Harlie is hoping her favorite nap spot on the back of the couch will somehow make it to the new home...I hoped my favorite blanket would come too!

Stay tuned in our next post for some shots of the new home!

Mattingly and Harlie, you are both such great packers! I am sure your Mom really appreciated your good help. Harlie looks cute in the yarn box, she looks like she was a little surprised!

Hello Mattingly and Harlie! I'm Oscar the Puppy Cat. I read your comment on Daisy's blog about Harlie's eyes and I was intrigued. You're both so beautiful! Mattingly, mommy says you look so silky soft. Anyway, the two of you were so nice to help with the unpacking! Mommy says that I help a lot, too. I'm not sure how she meant that put I choose to look on the bright side! LOL!

First you pack, then you unpack. Lots of work and hope the move was successful.

What a great place. I can't decide which I like better, the mountain of books, the comfy couch, the box, or your mom's yarn (always a favorite)

Harlie did a really good job of squishing the yarn down so it would fit. No cat could resist a paw sticking out from under the recliner like that. I hope your move was as painless as possible.

Wow, you two are good at packing! If we ever move are you for hire as snoopervisors?
