“Well hey everybody, I am officially on the road now. *MEOW!* *MEOW!* And it's, uh, well it's thrilling. *MEOW! MEOW! MEOW!!!* I've got the Doom Beast right here beside me and I see one little paw sticking out through the holes on this carrier *MEOOW! MEOW! MEOW!!!*. And she is *MEOW!* howling *MEEOOOOW!!*. Yes, howling. *MEOW!* As I dare say she will continue to do *MEOW!!* for the next three and a half *MEOW!!* days. *MEOW!!* So hooray.

At any rate *MEOW!* I left Litchfield, Kentucky about 20-25 minutes ago *MEOW!* and I'm on my way out west. *MEOW!* And hopefully I'll arrive with one intact pussy-cat *MEOW!* provided I don't *MEOW!* snap and strap her to the roof between here and there. *meow*

Well, I'm going to log off now because I don't like being on the cell phone while I'm on the road, and we'll see if Spainy-cat has a few final words. *MEOW!*

How's it going kitty?
How do you feel about being in the car?
Right, you on record for that?

And now you know what I'm dealing with *MROWL!!* for the next three and *MEOW!!* a half days or so. *MROWL!*

Well have a good day everyone, and I shall now concentrate on driving. Good bye.”

Have a safe trip!
I take it that last bit means that Spainy the Cat lost her battle against the carrier.

Mar. 18th, 2006 03:35 pm (UTC)
Awwwwwww! My husband just came into listen to Spainy with me. :p Can he not ride OUTSIDE the carrier, or is he a terror in the car?

My Binky is great in the car except for the fact he thinks he needs to be held the entore trip. =sigh= 18 lbs of fur on my chest while I am driving....

That post just made Lorelei go berserk, searching the office for that other cat who had the temerity to intrude on her territory.

Thank you for the morning amusement. :)

Off topic, I LOVE your icon!

Louie, my dog, is very interested in the plight of Spainy Cat.

And yet, all this outpouring of sympathy and interest means nothing to her, does it?
Mar. 18th, 2006 04:10 pm (UTC)
so nice of spainy to provide a bit of driving music... my kitty always has to poop 10 minutes into every car ride, so the litter box rides in the floorboard...
Mar. 18th, 2006 04:50 pm (UTC)
Mouse (see picture) just pulled on his knight errant drag and tried to rescue the queen imprisoned in my laptop.

Poor Spainy! I hope you've got aspirin.
Mar. 18th, 2006 05:03 pm (UTC)
Poor Doom Beast!

And poor you, having to listen to it....
Mar. 18th, 2006 05:51 pm (UTC)

My cats are now hunting from room to room looking for the cat.

Mar. 18th, 2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
Wow, we sound similar on this thing. It's a little scary.
Even scarier is Tyler does the same thing in the car. He's completely laid back otherwise.

If she's a cuddle-puss normally and you are on a long streach of lonely road, I recommend having moriarty6 hold her for some of it. It seems to help.

Then again, so do tranquilizers.

Unfortunately, Cherie is travelling alone as Jym is already in Seattle. She doesn't have anyone to hold poor Spainy :/
Mar. 18th, 2006 08:49 pm (UTC)
I missed something somewhere. I thought she just wrote of him arriving w/ her... Blah, don't mind me.

Maybe Spainy will just exaust herself?
Mar. 18th, 2006 11:04 pm (UTC)
Jym just arrived in Seattle a couple days ago, but Cherie was in...Kentucky, was it?

I'm sure Spainy will give up after a while, heh. Of course, by that time Cherie will probably feel like chucking her out the window from the constant meowing :-D
Mar. 18th, 2006 08:23 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, poor Spainy.

Good luck Cherie, safe trip!
Mar. 18th, 2006 09:06 pm (UTC)
Bahahaha. OMG that's too funny. Makes me SO glad that we put kitty, food, water, and litterbox in the car with cracked windows we were hauling BEHIND the Uhaul when we moved. :) Molly's just as bad.
Mar. 18th, 2006 09:10 pm (UTC)
I must say that this is definitely one of the funniest posts that I've read in ages!
Mar. 18th, 2006 10:06 pm (UTC)
Hahah... that transcription is great. Cherie is going to be so. tired. of. meowing. Teehee. I'm so glad the farthest I've had to take my 4 cats has been 10 miles.
Mar. 18th, 2006 10:14 pm (UTC)
I can barely survive going about 4 miles to the vet with my cat in his carrier and the 4 miles back. no way i'd survive going thousands of miles! Good luck! :)
Mar. 18th, 2006 10:48 pm (UTC)
wow, suck. this post totally b0rked my friends page. weird.
Mar. 18th, 2006 11:58 pm (UTC)
Yes I know it did the same to mine. Page just cuts off and doesn't even show anything after not even the transcript or username. :(
Mar. 18th, 2006 11:59 pm (UTC)
yeah, i can't even get to the link that lets me skip to my next 50 posts. :|
Mar. 19th, 2006 12:05 am (UTC)
Yep, I temporarily removed Cherie from my list so I could see my other friends' posts, and had to come here directly to see this and reply.

I'm gonna check the source for this page and see if I can figure out what's wrong.
Mar. 19th, 2006 02:36 am (UTC)
Bet it has to do with when you "reworked it" so it looked better on her laptop. This was the first voice post after that.
Mar. 19th, 2006 12:31 pm (UTC)
By "you" I assume you meant "she" :) Yes, it makes sense that those changes are the source. Though I couldn't see anything in the HTML...but I'm hardly an expert.

What's really annoying me is that even though I've re-added the journal to my friends list, no entries are coming up for it - it's as though LJ isn't updating my friends list to reflect the addition.

Oh, hang on....

I think I know why. My bad. *goes off to fix it*

Like Cherie, I got stuck travelling with a cat in the car a couple of years ago. I was going the opposite direction, though: 2400 miles from California to Ohio.

Thankfully my kitty likes the car. He hates the carrier, but loves the car. I just plunked the carrier down in the middle of the backseat, locked him in while driving through the city, and opened the door while driving out on the open road. He spent parts of the ride curled on my lap, on the back hat rack checking out traffic, and on his own seat (the passenger seat). I even gave him cat nip, and he was the most contented of pusses. He was so thrilled to watch the scenery and doze in the sunshine instead of being cooped up in the carrier.

Of course, when I pulled over at rest stops, he didn't care much for the litter box-he was too scared of the outdoor noises (he's an indoor only kitty). He held it each night until we hit the motel room.

My parents swear that when we took Miss Boobasket to get snipped, she came out with a meow that sounded just like "help me". i think they are just learning to speak Cat ;)

Listening to the voice post reminds me of my very short (15" each way) trips to the vet with Ni‘ele, who informs me of his displeasure every minute on the way there and back. I cannot imagine spending three and a half days listening to that.

What's even funnier is reading the transcription interspersed with all the *MEOW*s. Many thanks to the multiple transcribers for the laugh.

Mar. 19th, 2006 02:52 pm (UTC)
Heh. Sounds like my cats in the car. It's even more fun when there are 6 of them.
Mar. 19th, 2006 10:57 pm (UTC)
Aw, poor kitty! My Puma girl did the very same thing when we moved from Cali to TX. For 3 days. Unhappy cat.

Bug, on the other hand, would have put her head out the window like a dog, if I'd have let her.

Re: Please keep your fingers out of the cage!
I just made that same trip last month! Twins! :P When did you get out here?

It was back at the tail end of 2002.

I had to crank the music as well, but mostly to drown out the loud grinding noise my rear bearings started to make after one day into the drive. I think that freaked out the poor kitty more than anything.
Mar. 20th, 2006 05:55 am (UTC)
This reminds me a bit of when my family moved from Syracuse, NY, to Fargo, ND, with six cats in the van.

Well, actually, the cats didn't mind the car so much. What they hated was the leashes.

Poor you having to deal with Doom Beast ;)

It's ok Spainy - mommy loves ya still ;)
Apr. 16th, 2006 11:42 pm (UTC)
Mummy loves Spainy, but does Spainy still love Mummy after all that shut up in a catcarrier, the humiliation of it all...and the indignant mews of take that mobile fone and shove it! lol
