i'm leaving...on a jet plane...



ok that's not true. i'm leaving in a packed teeny tiny volkswagen, it just doesn't have the same ring to it, nu? after a month of staying with CL here in chucktown, i'm heading home to DC tomorrow. le sigh. it was fun pretending like we're married folks. unfortunately, my semester has started and he has to go to savannah tomorrw so that's that. to beat traffic on the 660mi trip, i'm leaving yesterday. um, no wait. i'm not leaving until i develop my time/space machine that will somehow enable me to teleport home with all my crap! yeah, that!

and, to add to the fun, i'm taking the cats. taking them down here was an adventure in misery for all involved. pirate did well with the cat tranquilizers and just slept for 10hrs or so. but frigging rocco lost his everloving mind. apparently, the tranquilizers had, like, a reverse effect on him and he spent 12 or so hours howling, screeching, and throwing his body against the side of the carrier. it was so stressful i was sorely tempted to take the cat tranquilizers myself.if they weren't going to work for him, at least they could take the edge off for me a little. we are not trying cat tranquilizers on him again. the vet said we could try children's benadryl, so that's the plan. if it doesn't work i'm dropping him off in virginia and he can find his own damn way home.

i'm in my 2ww. anyone care to hear about my phantom symptoms? ehhh, me either.

I have had to give the cats children's benadryl for a cold once. These are cats that sit still as I hold them and clip their toenails with people nail clipers with nary a yelp. All I can say is get a dropper, and get as far down his throat as possible. Otherwise your kitty will look like Hooch the dog.

Sorry you have to leave CL. That must be tough. As for the furbabies--yikes!! My cat screams in the car. I hope the ride back went a lot better.
