A Different State of Mind

I am filled with mixed emotions as I enjoy the beautiful colors of fall…

I see the empty sites of my fellow workampers who have already left for parts unkown…

Watching local farmers harvest their crops and digging up our own meager crop of carrots brings a sadness to my soul…

It’s the end of another season…

Our three cats were extremely active during the night hours.

At one point, I woke to find Gizmo on top of the Valance that covers the window at the foot of my bed!

They always get this way right before we leave…

In preparations for our migration to the south, we’d been packing away things we don’t use on a daily basis.

They know what’s coming…

It means that we’ll be using the large pet carrier and putting it in the back seat of our truck. Gizmo hates being put in the carrier. He doesn’t like confined spaces. It’s almost as if he is claustrophobic.

Is it possible for cats to be claustrophobic?

Once we get to our new destination and I put him inside the safety of our camper, he’ll settle down and be like his old self!

Dickens, our female among the litter, is the fiercest of the three. She takes nothing from nobody. And, she lets the boys know she boss!

She always seems to relegate the boys to the litter box we put in the carrier for their convenience, while she gets to enjoy the ride in the rest of the carrier.

Perhaps it’s not claustrophobia… most likely Gizmos’ reluctance to the carrier is simply that Dickens is a bit of a bully!

It’s always a sad time to say goodbye to new found friends, but the season has ended and it’s time to move on… to a new place, new opportunities, and new friends I have yet to meet…

It’s a different state of mind… a time of getting acquainted, and adjusting to a new place and new people, but one thing I know… it’s always a new adventure!

Till later,

Peace, love and safe travels!
