It was odd, as I got the feeling he knew that something was happening..
the last few times in the car, hes really not liked it..
but today.. although reluctant to go IN the cage, once inside.. he was pretty calm, and hardly meowed at all..
Helen had visited with Claudia earlier.. and that was a great distraction for me.. kept me busy and entertained.. bless em... xx
So.. the time comes to take him to the Airport...
the journey to the airport (taking him ourself saved $85!) was OK.. I covered the cage this time so he couldn't see out..he seemed far happier..(well happy may be a slight over statement!)
we arrived at cargo, Steve got our passes and we went to meet the rep..
Nelson caused a bit of interest... People seemed to think he was a special cat.. not just a stray we found 18months ago..
The picture is of Molly, who sadly went out and never returned home last Feb, and of Nelson..
The picture was taken November 08..
you can see what a state nelson was in.. emaciated, Mangy and pretty darn ugly...
who would have thought this ugly duckling would become my handsome prince!
This picture of them weighing him in... weight 8kgs
weight charged for..15kgs..
mmmmm.. sadly its done on Volume rather than weight..
Steve & I waited with nelson whilst the paperwork was done...
Nelson showed his displeasure by sitting with his back to the door... but.. made NO sound at all...
he wasn't freaking out.. so that was good..
They took him through into the cargo area after about 50 minutes of paperwork, didn't really get to say bye as such..
got in to the car.. and bawled like a baby!
Steve kept telling me.. we are doing it for the good... to give him a better life.. and YES that we are..
6months without him is going to be weird..
but October 11th.. i will be at the Quarantine.. ready to bring him to our homw.. (wherever that will be!!)
And do you know what was just so bizarre....
we went to the RBYC at Kota Batu for supper straight from dropping Nelson off..
and when we got there..
walk away Tina.. walk away!!!
