Our "Vacation" in Cairo

After Ruis's birthday party we (Sassy, Momo, Asta, & myself) decided to join Karl and Ruis on a little road trip. Destination? Cairo, Egypt!


I thought that we would see the sights...

...spend a day at the Egyptian Museum...


... and an afternoon at the market.


Instead we saw this......

You see, Karl and Ruis were going to Cairo for a romantic vacation. Sassy thought it would be fun to surprise them. So we packed ourselves into a suitcase which was then delivered to Karl and Ruis with strick instructions NOT to open it until they arrived at their destination. Unfortunately, our dear friends sat the suitcase down in their hotel suite and then forgot about it.

Several days later they remember the suitcase and quickly opened it up only to find four hungry friends inside.

After we each took a turn in the bathroom, we got dressed up and headed out to a HUGE dinner with Karl and Ruis.

Then it was time to NOT pack our bags, get on the flying carpet, and head home.

We had such a great evening in Cairo with Karl and Ruis that we quickly forgot about our time spent in the suitcase. HOWEVER, the next time we travel I don't think that I will let Sassy make our transportation reservations!

It did look like an excellent vacation! It's too bad it was so dark.

Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! How much fun we missed by being traped in the suitcase. I still think that Karl knew we were in there and for sure didn't unpack us. Next time I will leave the travel surprise plans to you.

Oh well, the best laid plan of mice and kitties.....

The 'what if' pictures are so good - that would have to do for us for now.

Look at the bright side: you got nice outfits, a fabulous dinner in Cairo, and a great carpet ride.
We got stuck with the clean-up of the party......

P.S. quiet possible that Karl had an inkling about you in there!

Oh my...that sorta gives new meanin' to who let the cat (and dogs!) outta the bag...

Now, Opus...truly...I wasn't in any danger...think about it...I dug a tunnel...(terriers live to do that!!!) I played in it...I got a little stuck...that was bad...I hate being outta control...Mumsie stuffed cheese in my stuck head...the boyz got in trouble...I got to attack the shovel!!!! That rocked...that was even better than bitin' the sweeper! Then I got lots of hugs and kissies...a bubble bath...and tons of whipped cream with carob...

Frankly, it was one of my best incidents ever!

Mumsie spent an hour this morning fillin' in the tunnel and generally ruinin' her clothes and nails...not to worry...I'll dig another one!

Thank you for your concern!!

We all lit candles for Roscoe. Give your mom some soothing licks for me...she's very sad, Opus, but your love will help so much!

Hugs and Kisses...Laciegirl
