Moving Part 3 Arrival in Our New Home!

Arrival on the porch of...where ARE we?

It was a long journey and the best way to tell you about it is to show you the slideshow about our move...and homecoming!

We also decided to put together a brief story for sideshow-haters!
So here we are on the porch of our new home.  But don't think it was so easy to get here!

As you can see my EARs are still curled from our hair-raising ride down here in these cages.  Well okay humans call them carriers. - Paprika

Our transportation was so lacking in finesse with no explanation at all, I felt we should stay in our "carriers" for a long time.  Who knows what to expect?

The next thing that happened was our human transported us into a strange smelling house.  she then made a big mistake  She LET US OUT IN A ROOM THAT HAD A BED.  

We always thought she was pretty smart but that move was downright stupid  She didn't know we have the ability to turn ourselves into FLAT CATS and, once transformed, slide into the tiniest spaces.

So hearing the strange traffic noises and smelling the strange noises we DIVED under the bed.  And stayed there.  It was so low she didn't think we could get there but we DID.  She was terribly worried cuz it was hot that day & 90 degrees under the bed. She thought we'd suffocate.  So she unpacked 5 boxes till she found a FAN and made the under-the-bed place cooler.

Then she fooled us by opening a can of tuna.  Okay so we're not so smart when it comes to tuna. Still flat cats, we squeezed out.  When she saw us, she was astounded at how small and flat we'd become!


Finally we began to explore.  Of course silly Paprika thought she had ago to the highest place immediately....I'm not like that.  I tried out other spots. -- Peaches

This space is much ore to my liking! - Peaches

We checked out a few other prime locations, including the view and a sumptuous white sofa.


Much to our delight, we found we were in the sunniest place of our whole lives.  There was sun in every room.  sun on the floor, sun on rugs, sun desks, sun from our cat condo...we were in heaven.

Given that there are unlimited sun puddles in our new digs AND that there is a huge white sectional sofa accommodating both of us AND our fake cat, Calissandra, we have decided to STAY.  

Not bad, I say!

So all is well on the Connecticut shore.  Except our human STILL cannot get over how we turned into flat cats.  She had never seen us all flattened out and she's still recovering.  (between her trips to the ocean, just 2 blocks away, taking pictures of sunsets!)

We are joining The Cat on My Head's Sunday hop to say hello from our new home on the Connecticut shore to all our friends!

  3. You look quite content now and it looks wonderful to be shore kitties!

  4. It looks lovely there, and such a nice big sofa to stretch out on. I am glad you have given the new place your seal of approval.

  5. What a fun new house you have and that couch is wonderful for the two owners of this fine cat home. Mom must love being so close to the beach and ocean so we all wish you luck. Now we have to jump over to see you slideshow.

  6. It looks like you are doing fine now. We are planning a 900 plus mile trip with our cats in about three weeks so I need to go back and read your other posts for maybe some ideas.

  7. It looks like everything worked out well! Lots of sunshine and cozy napping spots for kitties in the new home!

  8. We're glad your move went well. It looks like both of you are adjusting to your new home.

  9. We are so glad you girls seem to be adjusting nicely. Nice to meet Cassandra too.

  10. Nice to see that you still climb high Paprika. Your new place looks nice. XO

  11. It's always to be cautious, kitties! UTB is a good place to get to, while you figure out the situation.
    In no time, you too are already at home...voila!
