Moving Day Two

Baxter in the Den

Lulu in the den

Another fitful night of sleep and another early morning start. This morning the movers arrived at 8 a.m. and set to work finishing up the household goods. Then they began on the items for storage. Actually they had begun on the storage items yesterday and kept them separate from the HHG that was left to be crated. All went smoothly. And another big surprise! My high school ring was found on the floor when my dresser was moved. Another item we thought had been stolen but was miraculously found!

When the movers were ready to roll out around 7 p.m. they’d packed up another crate and a half of household goods (for a total of six and a half crates) and six crates for the storage facility. So it looks like we are taking about half the contents of our home with us, even though most of what we are taking is not furniture! We’ll be moving into a furnished house but we took our mattress and box spring; mattress, box spring and frame for a guest bed; three living room chairs, our tv cabinet and assorted shelving units, a bookcase, and some lamps.

I took the kitties for their second trip to the vet in as many days. The ride went smoothly. Baxter did not soil his cage at all, but Lulu’s still crying (a little) and drooling (a lot). I discovered that I need to take a form to the USDA Veterinarian in Annapolis to get their final stamp of approval. I hadn’t realized this step was even necessary. I also need to get the results of their Rabies Titer before we leave the country. I made countless phone calls to the Rabies Lab in Kansas and to my local vet to make sure I would have the lab results in hand before we leave the country.
