So you saw what hard work we did packing. Next comes moving day. We don't have any pictures of that because Mom packed the camera a few days before and didn't find it until after we were in the new apartment for several days. I will tell you though that Harlie and I did not help with the move.

Many of you kitties mentioned that we may get locked in the bathroom. Well, thanks to Harlie and her ability to lock the bathroom door from the inside, that was not a possibility. Plus, Mom and Dad were worried about how stressed I would be with all the noise and commotion. And finally, if one of us did sneak out or try to bolt out of fear, Mom would never forgive herself. So we went to stay with some of her friends. They were a nice couple and had a clean, quiet apartment. We basically hid the whole day, but they left us alone and didn't try to pet us or do anything to make us more uncomfortable. It was less stressful for us in the long run, and Mom felt better knowing that no matter what happened, we were safe. We don't feel so bad that we didn't help on moving day because even Dad didn't help. He had to work.

So in the absence of moving pictures, here is a picture of Harlie and I snuggling in the old apartment on my favorite blanket. It's so great to have a little sister.

Mattingly, thanks for posting that link to Harlie's big adventure in the bathroom. I never read that before. What a silly kitten Harlie was, and I love her crazy eyes.

Moving is very stressful! Whenever we move, my Mommie and Daddie always rent a hotel room for us to stay in so we aren't around the movers, boxes, and mess of moving. I hate it.

I hope you are getting all settled in to your new home. You look very sweet cuddled up together, and I am glad you have such a nice little sister.

How thoughtful of you Mattingly, to protect Harlie from all that stress. You're such a wonderful guy. No wonder I love you!


P.S. I can hardly wait for you to get settled in your new place so I can come over to visit. I'll bring Misty so she & Harlie can play.

You're lucky, I always get locked in the bathroom. Actually, I'm such a big chicken that I don't mind that much. But I would rather go to a nice, comfy place like you went to. Did your favorite blankie get put in a good spot in your new place?

You two are so gorgeous. I can't believe Mattingly was found on the street and Harlie, I am a lady cat too and I am 4 years old and still don't know how to be gentle. Good luck with that though. FAZ
