As most of you know, my family and I are preparing to move to Atlanta, Georgia. This means we have to move all of our pets - including our cat. This is going to be a good trick, because Bootsy is an outdoor cat who absolutely hates being confined. Even crating him for a five minute trip to the vet is traumatizing. He's never going to survive eleven hours in a crate!
We've debated about what to do with him. My husband got on the phone with his dad to get some fatherly advice on the situation. Here's what the two nutcases came up with:
1. Catapult Bootsy. They are certain that Bubba will come up with a great contraption for doing this.
2. Duct tape Bootsy to the roof of the car. He'll enjoy the wind blowing through his fur.
3. Hang Bootsy from the differential on the moving truck and let him dangle for eleven hours. What cat wouldn't like that?
4. Throw Bootsy in the back of the moving truck and let him cook. My husband says this will show us exactly how strong the cat is.
Right. These are the brilliant suggestions from the men in my family.
Here's my vote: We get Bootsy some kitty Prozac and let him sleep through the whole thing.
What do you think?
