Road Trip Travels thru Texas

You think this is a BIG bus? It looks big. But when you put 22 (and more) cats, two dogs, buckets of temptations, a few litter boxes, some cushions, blankies and spiffy clothes, well, it gets a little crowded. So once again we are a caravan on our way across Texcats to visit Luxor.

To his credit, he is getting ready. I don't know how ready he can be. We've been to Daytona and Miles drove the bus around the racetrack. We've had lizard stew at Daisy's. We even had roadkill armadillo by Angus' place. What a unique experience! You gotta read about THAT!

Check out this picture of the inside of our pimped-out bus. I am wondering who is playing thundering herd of elephants upstairs on the double decker. Monty is taking a little breather from treating us to his version of La Dona est Mobile. (It doesn't sound like Pavarotti's version.)

We're having lunch in Galveston, at Missy & KC's. Bar-B-Q & a nice buffet (can a buffet be naughty?)

Oh, I forgot to mention the LOVELY welcome Daisy gave us, and we had a great sightseeing trip courtesy of Moe & Mindy. You should check out the pictures!

After the highly anticipated meeting of Lucky and Luxor, we will be continuing on the the Pacific, so Dragonheart (and the rest of us) can see the Pacific Ocean and partake of the sights there. Beezer, Daisy Mae Maus and Sophia and the buns have terrific plans for us. I can't wait.

We will meet up with Kimo & Sabi (hope we don't have any trouble with the earthquake).

Along the way, Poppy Q, Parker, Derby, Samantha & Tigger, Mr Chen & Ollie, China, Willow, Sanjee and others have joined us.

We are having SO MUCH FUN! (And if you are on the bus and I forgot to mention you, I am so sorry.)

Even though we are having a great time, we did all stop our silliness and have a moment of silence for dear Mia, who crossed the Rainbow Bridger last night.
We are so sorry to lose her.

We are all shocked by the sudden passing of Mia ofer the Bridge.

But you are all also gettin on with life, an that's important, too. Sometimes the only way to deal with a loss is to go on with life.

Enjoy the Road Trip freely... :)

Could you please spare a moment to say a prayer for a missing cat in the UK whose name is George - he has been missing for 3 days now.
