Umm, I'm not sure which trip you mean. We made it by boat from the Texas
central Gulf coast almost to North Carolina. As I've posted before, Rosie
and Cinder did great on the boat.
In August, our daughter had a baby on the other side of the continent. So,
we left the boat for the winter and rented a car and drove with the cats
back to Texas to take care of some business, then to the Northwest, where we
have rented a small, pet friendly apartment, close to our grandchild for the
We will resume our boat trip in the spring.
This year Rosie & Cinder traveled 2400 miles by boat and about 4000 miles by
car. I suppose that is some kind of record.
They like the boat better than the car. I suspect that it was because they
were confined to the cabin, but otherwise free when we were under way on the
boat. However, we kept them each in a hard-sided crate, big enough for a
cocker spaniel, while in the car.
