We were all ready to answer a question from one of our readers today, but Mama came back from a visit with her family and she looked so tired …
And we felt bad for her. You see, she’s getting ready to bring Paws and Effect HQ — and the Paws and Effect Gang, of course! — all the way across the country to our new home in Seattle! She’s pretty excited, but kind of frantic, too.
We’re going by car, and Mama’s only going to take what she can fit in the car, so that means she has to get rid of almost all her belongings. She’s doing a really good job, but all she can see when she looks around is mountains of stuff.
We think she needs to spend some down time with us this evening. We’re a little bit stressed, but we’ll be fine, as long as we’re with Mama. She’s had us all microchipped and made sure our shots are up to date, so we’re all fit and ready to travel. So come on, Mama … relax!
Because soon enough, we’ll be bidding farewell to our beautiful home on the coast of Maine, to go to another beautiful home on the coast of Washington. We’ll report from the road, of course, and once we get our new Paws and Effect HQ set up, we’ll show you lots of pictures!
Best wishes for a safe move! I am sure you kitties will love your new home!
I made a trip just like that around three years ago, but it was a little different. First, some strange men came in and took everything out of our home. The next day, my human shoved me into a cage, and I was not happy about it. Then we got on a big metal tube that flew through the air and was very noisy. I was good, though, because I didn’t make a peep until we landed.
Then I went to a place I had never seen before, and my human told me it was going to be our home for a while. I didn’t like it much, but I got used to it. I was not happy when my human moved again, but it was only a mile away from the old place so it wasn’t so bad.
I hope you have a safe and uneventful trip, my good furiends. Remember, stick with your human and be nice to her. She will be worried, so help her and be nice to her. You can help her feel better!
How exciting! I hope everything goes well for you and I will love to hear your adventures along the way. I have done a few of those – myself and the kitties – and we did just fine.
i LOVE that second picture :D :D :D
hope the move goes smoothly for you all :D

Safe travels!! Seattle is a beautiful city that I love to visit. And I’ve made several friends there who love cats!
We did the same thing about 2 years ago. Everyone was a little scared, but immediately found a place to call their own. I chose the closet in Mom’s bedroom, there were lots of nice boxes in there to lay on and no one bothered me much. Mom even put a litter box in there….just in case I couldn’t find one when the time came, it is gone now tho. Every one is settled in, and the move turned out to be a good thing. So hang in here, the trip should be exciting, tell your mom to keep a leash and harness on you guys at all times, kitties can be pretty tricky. Have fun and share the adventure.
Safe travels, and I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. Monet
Good luck everyone! Let us know how everything is going and what everyone is up to xx
I know how stressing it is to move – the ‘do I take this or dont I’, is a real pain.
As for the most esteemed Kitties, I hope they are looking after you and behaving themselves. It is hard on everyone shifting and I hope Mama, your furbabies look to you for comfort and support.
I am about to go through the same thing, although only temporary for 5 months while my house is fixed from the earthquakes and I am seriously worried how to handle my babies. My problem is finding a place that will allow cats or else they will have to go into a cattery and I dont think I could handle that…how would the most esteemed kitties and yourself Mama handle that.
Anyway, all the best in the shift..it does sound exciting.
Moved across country with two cats; Connecticut to Washington State. LaQuinta Inn takes pets. I stayed there most of the time.
Good luck with the move! Hope they don’t have any adjustment issues.
That second picture is briliant, but you are all adorable.
By the way, I’m now following your blog via Bloglovin. Looking forward to visiting often.
We know you guys will take a while to settle in, but we know you’ll love it once you’re there! paws crossed for an uneventful trip!!
