Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Holiday Roadtrip

We're on our first long distance roadtrip! Mom didn't want to spend Christmas without us so she decided to take us along with her.
I got to sit in the front seat because I'm the oldest . . .
and Jake had to sit in the back seat with the Grinch. Mom told us that we were very good because we didn't cry much at all.

First we went to the Richmond area to visit Mom's brother and family. Here we are in the house with our cousin Sophie giving us the laser beam eyes.


Then we went to Mom's sister's house in North Carolina. We crossed state lines! We have a nice suite here, but I stayed under this table except to come out to eat.

Jake hid under the bed, then under the chair. He came out just enough to reach his dinner. We're getting more accustomed to our surroundings now, though we didn't start out well. Our tabby cousin Sugar Magnolia greeted us at the front door with a hiss, and Freckles the Bengal cat come into our room and stole some of Jake's food when Mom left the door cracked. I'm not so sure about whether it's a good thing to spend the holidays with your relatives, but I'll give it a go this year to humor Mom. It's almost Christmas!

Oh Bathsheba I would have traveled in the PTU with you and snuggled. I LOVE car trips but relative cats are always a little tricky...my uncle Maestro and I do like to get together and pick on aunt Jasmine. Hehe.... Travel is hard but its nice to be with your Mom!!
