I was so wrong!
Mom and Daddy got the car all loaded up.
Just as I suspected, they were indeed leaving on a
I had failed to notice that Mom had packed
my bag too!
At first, I complained.
We did stop at a rest area briefly.
Mom walked me about and tried to help me relax.
I even purred when I got back in the car.
My purring, however, quickly gave way to meowing
as the car began to move again.
Eventually, however, the sun began to rise.
So I began to relax.
There were still times when curiosity
got the best of me and I began to look around.
This was usually in those rare moments
when we passed through some small town.
Then the curiosity would leave me
and I would settle back into my box.
After many hours of being on the road,
we actually went through a large city.
It was here that we stopped and got
out at another rest area.
After a brief amount of investigation,
I decided I didn't much care for it.
After a ridiculous amount of hours passed,
we finally stopped somewhere that
didn't look like a rest area.
Now, when I say 'hours', I mean it was
dark when we left home and dark again when we
arrived at our destination.
Much to my suprise, Computer Aunt was there...
I could see her, I could hear her, AND I could
I was actually at her house!
I gave it a thorough investigation.
Mom and Daddy had not only brought
my bed in from the car, but food, water, litter,
As I continued to investigate,
I decided I could settle in here for the night.
I even found that she too had a place
on the cabinets above the refrigerator.
A place where I could feel content,
perhaps even 'ultimately rebellious'.
Yes, this would do nicely.
I just hope we don't have to get in the
car again any time soon!
