We had the most wonderful week in Maine. The kittens slept on or snuggled up to us every night. When we got up, we had several cups of coffee, read, played with the kittens … on all the sunny days we usually drove to the house on the lake to spend more time soaking up the sun. On the rainy days we would find ourselves close to the furnace and watch some TV. Besides, I loved to bake and to later enjoy all the cakes.
The only downsides were that we only had one week of fall break and that the drive is awfully long. Even though we stayed in southern Maine, it was still more than 700 km home. So we spent the whole of yesterday in the car – although even that has become a cute adventure now with the kittens. They are so calm that we can just let them out of their carrier bag. They just walk around a bit, even use the travel kitten box, and eventually they fall asleep on the backseat. So if you ever see a cat looking at you from a back shelf in the car in front of you, it might be us 😀 .
