I’m a cat person, and always have been.

When Chris and I set out for our first seven month trial run of traveling together in 2007, we decided that my cat Alma was not meant to be a traveling cat. Alma never enjoyed car trips (or Hurricane evacuations!), and it just didn’t seem right to try and force an outdoor free-roaming cat to try and adjust to living in a confined space.

Pets are part of the family to many, and it’s quite understandable why many folks make lifestyle compromises to keep them part of their lives. When I was first contemplating joining Chris to live on the road full time, the idea of giving up my cat Alma was actually harder to imagine than giving up my house!

So we left Alma behind with my former housemate who loves her dearly.

The trial runs for both of us went well, and both Alma and I thrived in our new homes. But there was a furry void in my life, and Chris and I agreed that we would stay open for a travel compatible cat to join us on our journey. We knew when the time was right, the right cat (or kitten) would purr into our lives.

And indeed she did!

While visiting some friends on a ranch in Oregon last December, a seven-week-old bundle of cuteness named Kiki stole our hearts. A quick test trip proved that she was travel and allergy compatible, and she had been traveling with us ever since. Having literally grown up on the road, she has grown to be a natural traveler.
