After a long day, we hit the road and have stopped just west of Houston. We had hoped to make it further, but everyone was just so very tired! We had dinner with our friend Tom, whom we shall miss dearly, and headed east. The cats have taken the first few hours of travel very well, but Marlowe did not appreciate being in his travel cage. During daylight hours, he can ride on one of our shoulders (whomever is not driving the car) but once the sun goes down, it is bedtime for little Quaker parrots.
Everyone is happy to be down for the night in our favorite pet friendly hotel- the La Quinta Inn and Suites- but no one seems as happy as McLovin, who got turn down service from mommy.
Apologies for the grainy photo… We tried turning more lights on, but Marlowe fussed up over his dinner when we did so.
The cats have their own hotel room routines. Trinity is lurking in the windowsill, Porthos is searching every corner of the room for anything he can claim as a new cat toy and Cuthbert is rolling around on the floor, relishing the removal of his safety harness.
Tomorrow we hope to stop in Baton Rouge, but we may push on a bit further depending on how the pets feel about it. They are pretty clear on communicating when it is time to stop for the night.
Until our next stop,
