|Kameko and Katy on the way to Kape Kod, August 2012|
Kameko is a special cat. She's very affectionate... as long as she's comfortable. She doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body- you never have to worry about her biting or scratching. It's just not in her vocabulary. I bring her to my parents' house on Cape Cod at least once a month so she's no stranger to the car, but her experience has been mostly 3 hours (max) at a time. This is going to be like 60 hours... in just a few days.
I'm not too worried about how she'll be once we get to Juneau, but the trip there might be a little rough for a few reasons.
1. Staying in strange homes on the way. I think I'm going to work it out so that we have a place to stay every night on the way to Washington state. She can get very frightened in an alien environment so I think each place we stay will be a new experience in terror.
2. She gets car-sick sometimes. Yup. She pukes sometimes in the car. I wonder how many times she'll boot in 3,000 miles.
3. The ferry. Kitty must stay in the car for the entire 2 1/2 day sailing from Bellingham to Juneau, and I can only check on her only when we're in a port- which isn't too often.
4. I could kill her. She has a tendency to meow in the car pretty much constantly, and even after 2 hours going to Cape Cod, I can get pretty irritated. I kid. I get REALLY irritated.
Well, I have many ideas about how to make her comfortable on the way, and I'm sure I'm going to like having the company. :)
... and here's more Kameko (because she's so pretty!):
