Around the world and back again

Or at least it seems that way.

Yesterday was an extremely long day. Started packing up the car at 9:45 for a barn cat relo. Drove from Knightdale to Apex, tranferred items to Marie's car (she has more room) and headed to past Aberdeen. Got Hannah and Montana, the barn cats settled - the friendly male barn cats were already trying to flirt with them (yes, they are ALL spayed/neutered, vaccinated, etc.).

From there we headed past Laurinburg to near the NC/SC border to pick up cages from a previous barn/garden cat relo and then headed back to Apex. At 3:00P, we managed to stop for something quick to eat while passing through Sanford after stopping at the local drugstore to pick up some Excedrin Migraine to hopefully keep mine from getting worse.

We stopped in Apex and offloaded some items to my car before we headed to Hillsborough to pick up cage from another previous barn/garden cat relocation. Brie and Gunnar are doing well there and seem very happy.

From Hillsborough, we headed to Bahama to check in on some foster kittens and take pictures (pictures will be added to blog this week).

From there, we stopped in Durham to meet and evaluate some cats potentially needing barn homes. We work hard to match the right cat to the right home, regardless of whether it's a friendly cat in the adoption program needing an indoor home, or a semi-feral cat needing a barn/garden home. With barn cats, it is absolutely imperative that we match the level of feral/semi-feral/super shy, etc. to the activity level of the barn.

From there, back to Knightdale to unload all the cages, and do nightly cleaning of litterboxes, refills of food/water, etc. Marie set all the cages up under the carport so I could easily bleach everything down today.

Then we headed back to Apex. After a quick stop at the grocery store for items to make pasta with alfredo sauce, we headed back to Marie's house and were finally able to make some dinner at around 10:45 at night. Ate and then I unheaded home. Got home past midnight What an exhausting day.
