Road Trip: Karl's House

What an exciting day! We left Italy early this morning in our flying van. Our destination? The Cat Realm! Our friend, Karl, and his family are having a huge party tomorrow in celebration of their first Blogaversary! The party is a mariachi festival; we shall be performing with the world's #1 (and possibly only) all-cat mariachi band, Los Gatos!

Roscoe and I left Italy this morning with our sombreros in paw. We took off in our magic flying van with plans to pick our friends up along the way.


Our first stop was in Australia where the beautiful Momo was waiting for us near the bay.


It was a long flight across the Atlantic. Momo and Roscoe played "Catch the flies with your teeth" while I concentrated on driving. I'm not sure who won, but they both needed a good teeth brushing when the game was over.


After we crossed The Pond, we made a stop in New York City to pick up darling Asta. Then it was off to find Sassy in the heartland of America. Along the way, Asta taught Momo and Roscoe how to stick their faces out of the window and put their noses into the wind. As cats, we had never tried this before. But Roscoe and Momo assured me that it was a ton of fun. I will have to give it a try when I am not behind the wheel.

It took a while to find Sassy. We searched every map, looking for the heartland of America. At last we stopped at a gas station where we asked directions. Yes, boys DO sometimes ask for directions. The man at the gas station laughed when we told him we couldn't find the Heartland of America. Why didn't someone just tell us INDIANA in the first place??? Just as our van few over a field of golden colored corn, we spotted Sassy waiting for us next to the candy apple red barn. She even baked a cake for Karl and the crew. Of course there was no room inside of the van as our sombreros were taking up too much space, so we tied the cake the roof of the van and headed off for Arizona!

We are on our way Karl!
See you all tomorrow at The The Cat Realm party!

This is going to be one heck of a party. The party of all parties. I am so excited that we are entertaining the guests. We still have time to practice before the big day. Thanks for picking me up in the flying van sure does save on the travel time.
