We knew we were going to let Vladi leave his carrier, as we had with Tanj and Usch. The car was packed with comfy beds, a litterbox, water dish, and clean-up towels. We fully expected a lot of meowing and scrambing around the car, and it was Les' job to keep control of Vladi while I drove. For safety reasons, we only took pictures when the road was clear. We wanted to keep Vladi as calm as possible, and also hoped it would be a bonding experience as it had been with Tanj and Usch. Off we went...
Right away, Vladi joined us up front,
perching between our seats and crawling
in Les' lap (mine was off limits).
Vladi "sang" pretty much all the way from Seattle
to Portland, just as T&U had.
He sounds a lot like a bird-of-prey (maybe a hawk?). Pretty cool!
Vladi wanted to be high to see all of the action...
Here's the best part, within ten minutes of leaving,
around making biscuits (kneading) like a total mush.
Vladi was a little "gassy" from all of the excitement,
so Les put him in the back for a tour of the litter box
and other goodies in case they were required.
quiet and Vladi could calm down. He was already pretty
calm and checked out the view...
and played with Les' shoelaces.
Vladi was sleepy...
by the Washington/Oregon border,
We were so happy that he was rested
up before arriving home!
