My pretty Pixie 

One of the toughest parts of this whole process was knowing my cat, Pixie, wouldn’t be able to make the journey to New Zealand with us. We’ve been two peas in a pod for the last 9 years together and finding her a good home to go temporarily was a top priority.

Luckily a good family friend, Diana, opened her home up to Pixie and gladly took her in with her other 1 year old kitten. Since Diana was in Nova Scotia though, Pixie had to make the long 22hr drive from Guelph, ON to Pictou, NS on our way for a visit with my family and friends.

After a long 4 hours of constant meowing, she eventually settled in and cuddled up on my lap. She even enjoyed a few parking lot leash walks in the middle of the night when we stopped to stretch

The drive to Diana’s house was tough for me though as I was sad to let her go. Pixie seemed excited though for a new place with a new friend she was about to meet! I think the whole ordeal was a lot harder on me than it was her but knowing she was in good hands made it a little easier 🙂
