Holiday travel

When it comes to holiday travel, I find it is difficult to stop Mom and Dad from going places. Apparently the draw of family is even stronger than the draw of a kitten pressed up against you in bed -- and that's pretty strong! But that still doesn't stop me from trying to keep Mom and Dad home.

I highly recommend sleeping on or in their luggage. In this case, I'm doing both. Mom and Dad like their orange Eddie Bauer duffel bags (easy to spot and they hold a lot). I like them for a nap. So even if they force you off of the bag so they can pack at least they'll be traveling with a big hunk of Jasper hair so everyone knows who they belong to. Thankfully it looks like Mom and Dad are home for a while after traveling for Thanksgiving. Hopefully your beans are staying put too.

Our people are leaving next week! Tucson, but only for 4 days. A golf boondoggle for Dad.
Mom got a new Lands End carry on bag and it's orange like yours. I've been laying on it in an attempt to hair it up. -Scooby

Yay Jasper!! I am soooo glad that after the "beans" were away for Thanksgiving that they will be home with you now.

That was a valiant effort you made to try and keep them from going and I LOVE how you left them some fur to take with them!

My human hides the suitcase until she is ready to pack it! I think that is cheating.

Our mom and dad don't travel much, but if and when they do, we'll take your advice and sleep in their suitcase.

So glad your mom and dad are staying home a little more. My mom says she will only be away for the Chick-Fil-A bowl.
