Calle And A Moving Update

Moving Update
Yesterday was the first of many big days for us in the next few weeks; I closed on a brand new house and will be in the process of getting things done around the new house and moving by the end of the month...Our new home has a 3 car garage with a wall/door separating the 2 car garage from a 1 car garage; I am installing central air/heat in the garage and will make it Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat's full time home...Tom will not be joining us as he has a home, although he roams our current neighborhood; I had him neutered and got all his shots updated in April because I thought he was a stray since he hung out in my yard with my cats so much, but he has a family a few streets over from mine...I will miss him greatly and I know Mommy Cat and especially his buddy, Daddy Cat, will too...Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat are both 10 years old and only leave my current garage for short periods; they are always welcome into my home, but they prefer the garage setting...The new home is in a new neighborhood by an interstate with new construction all around us and our property is on the edge of undeveloped property; I feel I must protect Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat and have decided to keep them in their garage for an extended time...So, next week, I will be dealing with the garage air/heat installation as well as other construction issues before moving my babies by the end of the month...After the move, I will have an "estate sale" at my current home before getting my current home cleaned up and ready to sell sometime in October...Just wanted to let you guys know of the changes around here and while I have scheduled posts ahead, I will not be able to comment daily for the next 2 weeks or so, until we are settled into the new place and then may be absent for a few days as I try to handle issues concerning the "old" home...This is my first move in 22 years, so there is much to be done...I hope you guys will continue to visit my babies while I deal with these big changes in our lives...Thanks so much for your friendship and support...Jacqueline

This is an exciting time for all of you! I hope it goes smoothly, and that everyone likes their new home when it is ready for them to settle in.

JC said...

Moving isn't easy. I hope your outdoor cats adjust. Maybe they'll become indoor kitties.

Scout 'n Freyja said...

We say take Tom with you. Sounds like his supposed to be family doesn't really care for him. He'll most likely live longer with you to care for him.

Congrats on the new home. It's exciting, isn't it☺

Sweet Praline said...

Wow! It is so great that Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat will be able to move with you. I won't forget you and hope the move goes well.

Mom says she may have a meeting in New Orleans coming up.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Ferst of all we hope it all goes smoothly and don't worry abowt not visiting. We'll be here when yoo're ready.

We think you are right to protect mommy and daddy cat by keeping the inside and safe. Maybe they could have an enclosed run? At 10 years old they will not be so quick anymore and not used to a busy road etc ~ so need more protecting.

Smoochies.

Boom Nisanart said...

This is an exciting news ! We wish you all have a smooth moving and we can't wait to see your new home : )

Cat said...

Best of luck to you for the move! It can be such an upheaval, but it sounds like you have everything well in hand.

I'm sure that Mommy and Daddy cat will adapt quickly to their new garage :-)

Kea said...

The very best of luck to you all, Jacqueline, for the move. I hope you have movers coming! Ugh, I loathe packing--lol. Maybe you'll give us a pictorial tour once you are settled into your new home. :-)

Lots of (((hugs))) and Light!

Marg said...

Well sounds like you are going to be very busy for the next month or so. We will come by for sure to visit the girls and Daddy Cat. Take your time and take breaks every now and again. You sure don't want to get sick. We hope it all goes really smoothly. We understand about the visiting. Hope you have a great day and big hugs to you and the kitties.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope all goes well for you with the move and there isn't anything to upset your schedule. We are sure Mommy and Daddy cat will love their own new heated apartment and will allow you to enter if you take your shoes off!!!
We think your girls will settle in quickly to their lovely new home and adapt to their new surroundings.
We send our best wishes and look forward to seeing you when you are settled.

Moving Day: watch out for "cats in boxes"... cats LOVE boxes, and we don't want any of them to get packed in, packed up, covered in popcorn or bubble-wrapped!

Laila and Minchie said...

That is so awesome the garage will have heat and a/c for Mommy and Daddy Cat! We would love to come live there too! Good luck with all you have to do!

Old Kitty said...

Awww lovey Jacqueline!!! GOOD LUCK with your cathartic move!! Good grief - sounds ever so exciting and very complicated!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Me and Charlie are sending you waves and waves of support hugs and purrs that all will go smoothly and to plan!!! Moving and selling could be very stressful and chaotic so we hope and have everything crossed for you!!

We will really miss Tom - but we won't ever forget him - he's a gorgeous star and you really were so very kind to him and we hope he continues to be so loved as you have loved him!

Lastly but not least-ly! :-) We are purring for your sweet and amaziing babies, Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat and Halle, Sukki and Calle. We know that they are very clever and must sense that there is great change in the air!! We know that they will be very good kitties and will take all in their stride!! We know they will settle soon!

All the best fab Jacqueline!! We look forward to your posts and to when you are settled and happy in your lovely new home!

Take care

Catherine said...

A new home ~ how exciting! And how sweet that Mommy and Daddy cat will have a nice new comfortable place to live as well. I wish you and all the kitties the best of luck as you move.

Warm wishes!

How exciting to have a brand new home to move to! We know how hectic moving is, but it will be worth it in the end!!

Madi and Mom said...

OH MY CATS J,
I wish you the very best in your move...we have been in our home for 27 years....I dread the thought of ever having to pack up and move. You are doing it the right way...move out then sort things!!! Good luck Mommy and Daddy cat are very very lucky indeed.
We'll keep you in our thoughts.
Madi and Mom

DailyGs said...

Having just moved to the Swmamp this past February, the hectic and stressful activities are still quite fresh in our minds!

We hope everything goes off without a hitch!

wildcatwoodscats said...

We are sorry Tom will not be joining you but the garage sounds great for Mommycat and Daddycat. We are sending huge amounts of purrs and light that all goes well and that your old house sells!

The Island Cats said...

We wish you well in your upcoming move and hope all goes well with it! Sounds like Mommycat and Daddycat will have the purrfect place too!! We're sorry Tom won't be coming along but we are glad to know he has a home. Good luck to all of you!

oxoxoxo

Huffle Mawson said...

Good luck with the move!

Nina said...

Good luck with the move. We will definitely stay in touch. Mommy and Daddy cat are very lucky to have such a thoughtful and caring mom. Take care of yourself as I know moving is hectic and stressful. However, the outcome will out weigh all of that when you are finally settled. Congratulations on your new home.

meowmeowmans said...

You guys have SO much to do ... please don't worry about not visiting regularly for awhile. Of course we will still check in on your babies!

What do Halle, Sukki, Calle, Mommycat and Daddycat think of all the pre-moving activity?

It sounds like Mommycat and Daddycat are going to have quite the setup. You are doing the right thing to protect them in their new home. It's a little sad that Tom can't come along, but we feel better knowing he does have a home.

Congratulations, and good luck with the move, friends! :)

Remington said...

Congrats on your new home! Good luck with the move! Pics please!

Cory said...

Good luck with the move! Sounds like Mommycat and Daddycat will have great new digs...and please give Tom a kiss for us before you leave.

Eric and Flynn said...

Sounds like MommyCat and DaddyCat will have a lovely apartment all of their own to move into. Good luck with all the packing and organising. We hope everything runs smoothly for you.

Sammy and Andy said...

We are purring and purraying that all goes smoothly with your move and all that is connected with it. xxxxxxxxx

Danielle said...

We hope your move goes well, and that your kitties adjust. I hope you will love your new place!

Katnip Lounge said...

We'll be thinking of you...moving is, as Mommy says, a royal pain in the butt! How Humand accumulate so much stuff we'll never understand!

Maybe since it'll be a new place, Mommy & Daddy Cat will want to spend more time indoors.

We're gonna miss Tom, too.

Admiral Hestorb said...

I will visit your babies and before I go any farther, you are a most excellent cat mom to do that for Mommy and Daddy cat. They are advanced in age as you said..and it would be such a kindness if they lived inside in the location you are going to. It won't take much time at all for them to become adjusted to it. the Admiral was picked up as a kitten in a grocery store parking lot. She remained indoors with hardly a squeak afterward.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Good luck with your move!

Ginger Jasper said...

I am so glad about Mommy and daddy cat, I was so worried what was going to happen but knew you loved them too much not to have made provision for them. I am sure they will be fine when they settle in, they will know you are there to care for them. I think Tom must not be happy where he is or he would not come to you so much, spirit him away with you. Good luck with the move and we will be here waiting for you.. Take care.. with love Carol and GJ xx

Repositório said...

Dear Jacqueline, that this change will bring many new and good things for you. Do not worry because I'll keep coming here to visit your beautiful family!
Good change!
A kiss full of tenderness

Brian said...

Yep, lots going on. Poor Tom will be heart broken.

Tamago said...

It's exciting! I hope moving goes smoothly.

Kat's Kats said...

Head butts, purrs, & prayers from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde & their Feeders that everything goes smoothly!!! Mommy was in her last house for ~14 years before we moved here and we're not sure how long daddy was in his house but we think it was about the same. Da Boys will keep thinking about the Girls and sending them kitty kisses!!

Ayla and Iza, said...

We hope the move goes very smoothly fer everyone!

Fin said...

It's exciting! We hope the move is very smooth and easy. Mom and I will keep you in good thoughts and look forward to seeing the new digs.

We read you everyday in our reader and enjoy all your posts!! So we'll be happy to have you back soon.

Mickey,Georgia , Tillie said...

We will purr that everything goes smoothly and drop in to say Hi to the kitties :)

Purrs Mickey,Georgia & Tillie

Cat Street Boyz said...

Our humans went through a big move to here in 2003. Cherokee is the only one that is left from the past home. Mom says it was exciting, a bit stressful, sad to leave the other home but happy to start a new adventure in this new home.
Thanks for your loud purrz for our woofie ICE. We are hoping for the rest of the testing results back this week.
Purrz and prayers for your move to go smoothly and safely into your new home=^Y^=

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Wow, such exciting and I am sure a little stressful...I fear what moving will be like for me when I finally do it. It was not too bad from Oregon to here as I had a small 850 sq ft house there but here...OMC, I have collected enough to fill 3 small houses as that is how big this one is...

How wonderful that you bought this place with Mommy and Daddy cat in mind. While I will miss seeing them in your garden and yard...they will be safe inside in your new place.

Reenie said...

I loved this post, Jacqueline!!

All the best with the move, my dear friend.... I am happy for you, your girls and mommy and daddy cats. I am specially 'purring' for mommy and daddy cat, it may not be easy for them, but fingers crossed that they will adjust.

Sad that Tom cannot come, I'm sure he will miss you and his friends. Poor thing, i'll miss his pics in your blog :)... I wish him a happy life regardless.

Beth said...

I'm so very happy for you, Jacqueline! When we moved 20 years ago, our cat Snickers hid for days. We thought he might have gotten out and went back to the old house, but he was just freaked out and hiding in the house. Happily he did adjust over time. I'd love to see some pics of your new home if you feel you'd like to post them.
blessings, Beth

Cyber-sibes said...

lupie said...

Just read your post! Yeah - I am pretty out-dated!

Here's wishing you that the move will go smoothly and everything will be in order!

Good to hear Mommy & Daddy cat will have a full time home!!!!

You have such kindness in you heart!
