Yesterday was the first leg of my trip to Nebraska. It was much easier than I remember. I think that was mostly because of my phone. I was listening to the talk radio station from Baltimore all day. The chat was very engaging, and time passed quickly for me. I drove fourteen hours yesterday.
The time did not pass quickly for Gus. He had a heck of a time getting comfortable. At first, he would only sit in such a way that his face was pointed at me so that he could always be looking at me. He meowed a lot, and would not stop until I rubbed his face and scratched his chin. As the day wore on, he tossed and turned, but never really slept. He would dig under the blanket, but then come out immediately. He was so uncomfortable. When I dug a T-shirt out of my suitcase and covered him, he was much more comfortable.
He did eat in the car, but he didn’t drink all day. I was a little worried about it. When we got to the hotel, he drank, so all was well.
Today’s trip is shorter. With his experience from yesterday, and with a T-shirt for a cover, hopefully today’s trip will be nothing but comfortable.
