Olive blocked me from packing on my way out of town.
Whenever I get my suitcase out, Olive jumps in. She does’t like it when I’m gone. Usually it means she gets boarded. When we left for a week at Christmas, we took her to a new boarding place. The one she had been to before and was kind of used to went out of business. The last place was brand new and had three-story cat condos with holes to climb through to the different levels. The top floor had a TV.
Olive freaked out. I got calls that she wasn’t eating, drinking water which meant her other bodily functions weren’t happening.
Eventually they moved her into a storage closet, away from the other cats. That settled her down.
In Olive’s mind, when the suitcase comes out, something bad will happen.
Olive wasn’t taking any chances. She slept in the suitcase for hours.
Today I’m headed home to my husband and Olive. Thank you for helping me through my week!
What are your plans for this weekend?
She’ll be so happy to see you.
I’ll be happy to see her too!
Adorable pictures of Olive in the suitcase. Love how pets communicate their feelings so clearly..glad you’ll be back home so Olive can de-stress a little 🙂
It turned out to be an amazing trip. I am so grateful. Now it’s time to get back to Olive and hubby.
What a love Olive is! Glad to hear that the trip was good…give Olive some extra snuggles when you see her. 🥰
Olive is a dear! My trip brought me peace and so much joy. I didn’t expect that 💕
I’m so happy to hear that, Elizabeth. Peace and joy? What else is there? xoxoxo! 🥰
The cat has a good comfort level.
She’s become the queen bee of our house.
I understand. We had Queen Sheba until she passed away.
I can see by your comments that the trip went well. Happy to hear that.
Thank you! After I get home and have a mung day, I’ll write about the highlights.
Oh, what cute pictures. But 3-story cat condos with a tv on the top level. I think I might to check into that place for a week!
So glad you are going home to your husband and Olive after a big week. Safe travels!
Thank you! It was beautiful in Seattle!
Aw, what a sweet girl! ❤️
Now she won’t let me unpack. I opened up the suitcase and she’s attacking it!
Hilarious! Cats are so funny!
They are! I had so much fun with my best friend’s cat on my trip, too. Maybe my cat smelled the other one?
Oh, that’s probably true! I’ve read cats have a keen sense of smell. You might be in trouble with Olive now! 🙂
Oh I had to comment on a story about a cat in a suitcase. Once upon a time we had a cat who could be Olive’s doppelgänger and she’d lay claim to any open suitcase. Loved her, love Olive.
Thanks for commenting 😊
