The movers start packing Friday!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hooray! I'm in the home stretch. Packing days are Friday and Monday. Then they pick up Tuesday. The only bad part is that my husband is gone already so I'll have to keep track of the kitties, dog, and make sure everything is packed correctly. Hopefully one of my friends will be able to help.

I am so excited to be leaving Colorado. No offense to fellow CO residents, but my husband and I never really liked it here. I'm looking forward to the land of humidity (FL) again so my skin can recuperate from the dryness.

Keep your fingers crossed for us that all goes as planned and the closing is still Wednesday.

Congrats to your move! What took you to CO in the first place?

Good luck! Moving with the animals can be stressing - so sending "everyone be calm and OK" vibes. I really hope all goes well!

The army took us to Colorado. Now we're off to Germany. But not til April. In the interim, since we've sold our house, I'm going to stay with my folks in FL and my hubby is in school in NC.

Thanks for the good vibes. Seamus has made the cross country trip before and he's more of a car ride lover then some dogs. Gator hates the car and cries the whole time. And Maxie's never driven anywhere over two hours, so it'll be interesting.

What happens to your kits when you go to Germany?

They're coming with us. Their paperwork is at the USDA for the all important stamp. My hubby should be getting the airline tickets this week, so I can arrange for their travel. It's early enough that with luck they'll be able to fly in the cabin. Both have flown before, and for all that Gator hates the car, he doesn't make a peep on a plane.

Maxie (the dog) will have to fly underneath. She's too big to carry on. She's flown too and seems to do okay.

I've been looking into dryfur kennel pads for them all. If they do tinkle, it'll absorb and the top layer is supposed to stay dry.

I'm so glad your babies are staying with you. Will they have to go into quarantine or anything once there?

No. The U.S. and Germany have an arrangement regarding servicemembers' pets, they need yearly rabies shots more then 30 days before travel, a USDA stamped health certificate in english and german, a iso compatible microchip, another health certificate 10 days before travel, and I think they need to visit the vet within two weeks of arrival.

We hope to find a nice place with a balconey we can enclose for the boys.

That's wonderful! Do you know how long his tour of duty will be over there?

We think three years. But the US is restructuring some of its armed forces, so we're not 100% sure right now.

Sending prayers and hugs from Mississippi that you have a safe trip, and I hope the animals do real good riding in the car.
