On Friday we drove all the way up to the family house in Maine. A 9 hour drive. And that is only to the southern part of Maine. But it was the right decision to drive the whole way because we then had all of Saturday already as our first proper day of fall break. This time we took our two little kittens with us. We hope that we can get them used to a few things like car trips. They were true little champs and didn’t seem bothered at all. They didn’t meow or even throw a tantrum. No kitten accidents. We even let them out of their bag because they were that calm. They then explored the car a bit and eventually curled up on Rich’s lap to sleep.
Now we are spending the whole week in the family house. Up here it is wonderfully quiet and relaxing. The weather has been good and we have enjoyed a warm and sunny weekend. Still, there is a fire in the oven because the nights are chilly. Right now (in 2020) I can’t think of a better place to spend my fall break at and with my favorite human and the new kittens.
