"A MOVE WEST"

charlotte, north carolina
5 days were spent crossing this country, and we decided that we couldn’t move to the west coast without our kitty. At 20 years old we wondered if she could make the trip, and well she did.
but it wasn't without protest.
stop number one, only 7 hours from what used to be home.

middle-american roadside oddities are a favorite of ours. this one served us lunch.

the coldest moment in the journey was undoubtedly our stop to the grand canyon. the walk to the overlook was much longer than we expected and despite the bitter cold all three of us got to see the view.

five days on the road meant four nights in hotels. depending on the city, the pet fee was sometimes just as expensive as the room itself. so we'd check-in online and sneak her in through the stairwell. she was happy to be settled.
we were cautioned by many to keep her in the car, in a cage, or on a leash. but unlike most cats, this one is far too old and dependant on us to go anywhere fast.

now we strive to be a canyon local here in silverado, california and we’ve never been more excited to see what life has for us. this is a time for us to work hard, save money, and create in a new landscape. as for kitty, we think she's got another 20 years left in her.
