Bob and Pushkins go on holiday - Animal Tales

Both the cat and dog get sensitive when I get ready to travel. Bob normally follows me around the house, from room to room and will sit outside the bathroom to wait for me. If I uncross my legs, he's up and ready to follow me. However when the suit case comes out, Bob takes himself to bed and sulks.

Pushkins becomes over friendly and gets under my feet and will do anything to hinder my packing process.


Bob spent the holidays with his girlfriend Jelly, he was eager to get in the car and settled in really quickly in his holiday home for the next 2 weeks.




Pushkins spent 2 weeks at the vets, she's normally reluctant to get in her cat basket, but as the zip had broken from her last escape attempt, I got her travel box out the shed, which she explored and went straight inside.



When we got back from the first part of our trip, we had an over night stay back home. I visited the cat, who purred, moulted and snuggled into me and after a few minutes, she jumped down and walked back in the other room to her cage.


In the evening I went to see Bob, he knew I wasn't bringing him home, I have no idea how he knew that, but after his initial excitement at seeing me, he took himself to bed, with a backwards glance at me.


Peter collected both the cat and dog after the 2nd week and I returned a week later, arriving the same time as child 3 and his girlfriend. They left on Saturday night, Bob was over the moon to see us both as he'd seen the suitcases come out, but had no idea if I was staying or going.

Child 5 will be here soon for a week and in mid June I shall be going back to the UK for the summer. Peter will be looking after Bob and Pushkins and there will be a visit from Jelly for 2 weeks and he will have to board the pets for a few days when both him and Jelly's owners are away with work.

  1. It takes two to get Boots in her cat cage too. She hates it with a vengeance ;) As for Doc, he loves going to his dog spa (the kennels), although to be fair, we do take him especially when it's a camping holiday. He loves that :) #animaltales

  2. It takes a lot to get my cats into their boxes to go to the vets or to travel and a lot of persuasion. They all know when we are going away and our older cat sulks terribly, when we get back! They are funny aren't they?

  3. Aw, he's so cute following you around. Animals do detest seeing those suitcases and will do all they can to get packed! #AnimalTales

    1. my cat has gone off in other peoples cars in the past, and once in a friends pram, so i'm always cautious when packing a suitcase

  4. Isn't it funny how animals know straight away when you are going away. One of our dogs would get in the boot of the car and NOT shift as soon as she realised holidays were afoot. And a cat we had would know that we had gone away rather than gone out for the day as within a few minutes of our departure the neighbour who fed him informed us that he would go and go sit on her doorstep ... yet he never did that when we went to work. #AnimalTales
