Phase One of our Big Move to Australia was initiated on January 6th (yesterday) morning when a representative from the pet moving company came to collect Pickle.

Pickle was unaware of what was going on as we laid all her travel documents, towel and a small container of treats on the table. To be honest I didn’t look forward to Pickle’s pick-up to arrive; I had just said goodbye to Fluffy in November and this parting hit a raw nerve. (Furthermore I hadn’t had breakfast and was getting hangry.)

Ever so abruptly, Helen from the pet moving company entered our house, swiftly put Pickle into a crate, was handed over original copies of Pickle’s documents and the “comfort” items I wanted Pickle to have, turned around, and left. I didn’t get to say goodbye to Pickle and suffered what I believe you would classify as a bad separation anxiety. (My poor baby girl!)

Good thing is having a rational brain otherwise known as The Hubs alongside, or I would have gone hysterical. (How I became such a possessive and crazy cat person, I do not know…)

Having requested for some information on Pickle’s updates, I tracked her flight, giving my wild mind some peace. Pickle made it across the United States! Part One of her big adventure is now complete; three more parts to go.

I say Pickle deserves the Brave ‘N Adventurous Kitty Award. Don’t mind me if I start a count down to keep me sane… It is 35 more days to February 10th!

  1. awww! i just got back to my kitty and was experiencing some serious separation anxiety at the end of our trip. happy travels to pickle and i hope the days go quickly until you see her again (:

  2. Poor you. I can imagine how tough it must have been because you can’t even explain to them what is going on. I’m sure she will be just fine though
    They are so resilient!

  3. Awww I’m sure Pickle will be ok as she’s with professionals. Just think of the welcome you’ll get when you see her again.
