Out Of Office

Hi kitties!We are now safely settled in our vacation cattery. But then I remembered something, and had to text my mum to remind her to put up my Marty post!Marty Mouse was my very first toy that my mum and dad got for me when I was a teensy babycat.When my mum and dad are moving house I send Marty to keep an eye on them and make sure everything is ok. And as my friends Cory and family commented yesterday, he also gets to visit lots of big things on his travels. On this trip, he will be travelling 3615km (2246 miles). The driving time is approximately 37.5 hours, but the trip will be divided over 8 days so that they can see things. On one day they will be going to Monarto Zoo and on another they will be visiting the pandas in Adelaide. They are also going to see where the Skylab crashed in July 1971.
I have told Marty that he is allowed to use my Twitter page to record some of the things that he sees. When he has finished this leg of the journey, he will have accompanied my mum and dad from Townsville to Perth. That trip is 6920km (4300 miles), and is about 76 hours of driving time all together! I'm glad I get to rest up and then go on a quick flight. I'll be ready to wrassle with Marty again soon!

Fui - do you know the song "I traveled round Australia on Highway number 1?" Your map reminds me of that song.

It sounds like your humans are going to have a lot of fun while they are moving! At the same time, I am glad your travel adventure will be much shorter - and I bet you are glad about that too!

Y'know, we forgot all about Marty! But we remember when he traveled last time! We hope your mom and dad have a good drive! We'll try to remember to check out Marty on Twitter!

Cory said...

The reason we remembered about Marty Mouse is because his brother...an absolute copy of Marty lives with us! We always think of you and his travels as we whap him around the house!

Safe travels to all of you and Marty! May he find many big things along the way.

xoxo Cory and Gingerkins and family

I hope your mum and dad love the pandas. My mum and dad went gaga over them a few weeks ago when they visted.

Grrreta said...

Wow, that is quite a distance Marty will have traveled with your mum and dad. It's nice that they will have time to sight-see on the way. We hope they have a great trip, and that you, Suey, and Lishy have a nice vacation at the cattery. We look forward to hearing about their trip, your time at the cattery, and your new home.
