Pillows, Pods and 100 Pounds of Cat Food

The drive home went incredibly smooth. Long, but smooth. 950 miles, 13 1/2 hours, including gas and litter box stops.

Katie and Waffles did great. They were even more relaxed than when we drove to Minneapolis. They both slept over half the way and when they weren't sleeping, they were just chilling out in their Sleepypods.

Once home, dinner was on the top of everyone's list. Both Katie and Waffles scarfed theirs down, did a quick cursory check of the house and headed off to their favorite resting spots. Even as we're writing this, Katie is resting on top of Glogirly's pillow. 

And Waffles... well he's in another pod.


KATIE:  So I guess 13 1/2 hours in your Sleepypod wasn't enough, huh Waffles? I can't believe you're sitting in another pod.


WAFFLES:  I'll trade you my blue felt pod for Glogirly's pillow.

KATIE:  Dream on, Waffles. I'm not even going to let Glogirly use it.



What Does 100 Pounds of Cat Food Look Like?
One of the bonuses to driving back to Colorado from Minneapolis is being able to load up the car with our favorite cat food. The night before we left town, Glogirly stopped at Woody's Pet Deli to pick up her special order. 50 pounds of cooked ground duck for Katie and 50 pounds of raw ground chicken for Waffles. 

Good thing we have a full-size freezer back home. This is enough food to last us about 6 1/2 months. That is unless Waffles cracks the code to the freezer door. 

In case you're wondering... Glogirly didn't leave the food in the car overnight. She loaded it into plastic bins, heaved it onto an apparently flimsy luggage cart, and gingerly wheeled it 3 blocks down the main drag of downtown Minneapolis from her parking spot to the apartment building. And then up 24 floors. Word on the street is that more than one of the bins slid onto its side and more than one of the frozen food containers rolled underneath her car. HBO words were used. Repeatedly.

  13. Does she have arms of steel now? I can just see her skipping down the sidewalk with her raw kitty food. Ma would have used words not allowed on HBO. You would have to add in the flapping, waving arms with the words " OH COME ON!" BOL!
