Ari here: Mom and I flew to Seattle on August 5. Its not my favorite thing to do but as long as I was with Mom, I felt safe. TSA Pre made our journey through security much smoother and Mom only had me out of the carrier for a couple of minutes vs last time we flew, it was more like 10 minutes. I meowed a bit more than last time but overall I felt safe in my carrier.
I stayed with Mom at Auntie Erin’s house and got visited frequently by Erin. She liked to check my chin for acne and found some infected pores, so while I wasn’t sure about her cleaning them, I feel better now. I don’t know why I suddenly have this acne. I never did before but my food and bowls are the same.
On August 8, the grandchildren and their parents arrived and there was a lot more noise, so I hid a lot under the covers. Emma and others , including Erin’s friend who smelled like a dog came to visit me in Mom’s room!
I never got to meet the dog called Appa who belongs to Erin’s friend. And that was just fine with me!
Emma let Mom sleep with her favorite Bunny, while Emma slept with Mom’s Gray Kitty.
At least everyone was gone during the day so things were quiet at least for a while, then I could wander out of the bedroom we were staying in a go explore the rest of the house, which was really fun! But at the slightest noise, I hid again.
I’m writing this after the fact, since I was so busy hiding, I didn’t have time to write during the trip.
