Hollywood Bumby

Mr Tennis and I are taking a reconnaissance trip next week out to our soon-to-be stomping grounds in California.  We need to get our feet on the ground and look at some rentals and Mr. T needs to meet up with his new office people.  

I will fly back and he will stay until a few days before closing on the house, when he will fly back again and then we make the trek across country with the Bostons and the moving van.

And Bumby you ask?

Bumby will be flying with us on Monday!  She's thrilled!  She's excited! 
She's not! 
We have a visit to the vet planned tomorrow so we can get her records and some happy pills for Miss Bumby.  Wonder if I can take them too.

Bumby has gone all diva on us and demanded a fancy carrier. 

 We like to call it the "Kardashian Kat Karrier".

Bumby likes to call it a torture device.  
Miss Darcy likes to call it "mine", since we are actually borrowing it from her.
I've been putting her in it everyday for a few minutes so she is familiar with it and she gets a treat.

So, it should be an interesting 5 hour flight with a tranquilized cat and an uptight cat momma - yes me!  I don't like flying much either, so I will have the human equivalent of Bumby's happy pill to take.
Don't you pity Mr. Tennis having to drag us both around the airport and then sit all that time with us on the plane?  He's a good sport!

So here's where we will be looking for rentals:

The circled names frame the new territory Mr. T will conquer out west and we are going to try to rent a house within that area.
Realtor.com and Zillow have become my closest friends lately as I am constantly on those sites looking at GAZILLIONS of rentals which after a while all blend together.

So. Now you know the latest!

No Bumbies were harmed or mistreated during the photo session connected to this post.
Okay, she wasn't happy about wearing the glasses, but for a few treats she put up with it.

Check Sunland/Tujunga - we could be neighbors. Also, Burbank is much nicer than North Hollywood or San Fernando- though more expensive. Glendale is nice, too. I will keep eyes peeled around Sunland/Tujunga as we go on walks :-)

My b/p elevated thinking about flying and add the cat to it and I would need drink and medication. Good thing Mr. T will be there to monitor the two of you.

oh my gosh, how funny. i'm sure bumby is not going to be too happy, but hopefully she won't even know what's going on!

With those glasses on Bumby looks like a cool cat. Can't even tell she is afraid of flying.
I am afraid of flying too. Not that that will make you feel any better... but I thought I'd tell you it is one thing we have in common.

Maybe you could where some cool sun glasses and that would help you to chill out. :P

Bumby looks ready, indeed. She should be fine, one would think with her meds. and you for reassurance. I love her new look, she's travelling in style!

Good luck with apartment hunting.

Will Bumby be returning with you, or staying there til your return?

Bumby looks like a star in those shades...she'll fit right in her new home! And Sadie is too cute in your last post. Glad the inspection went well...good luck finding a new place!

The Boston Lady has a NEW business ~ Up scale cat carriers. Her new book could be "Traveling with a cat who is over the top and on special Meds " . Do you need an agent ? ? ?
