Kitty Transport - SC to KY!


Loaded up and ready to go!


As we promised - pics from the transport Mom and Pop did yesterday. It was set up by Dorian who writes Your Daily Cute blog.  These 8 cats - one grey momma cat and her four black kittens plus 3 orphan kittens (two black and one tabby) were pulled from a shelter in SC and transported up to Asheville by Debbie. Black cats are the last to get adopted at shelters and most likely get put to sleep before that happens. So with this transport, these kittens have a great chance at finding a loving home.


Where are we?


Paws sticking out...


Pretty momma


Momma cat did not fit in the carrier with her kittens so they had put her in a cardboard carrier.  Not very secure for the drive so Debbie  had to make a Petco run to buy another carrier but once that was done all was good.

Interstate 40 thru the Smokies



We headed out to Knoxville TN, about a 2 hour drive thru the Smoky Mountains to deliver them to Lori who was driving down from Louisville KY!  The kittens were very curious and kept trying to pull at us from the carriers .  Finally they fell asleep all piled on top of each other.

Sleepy kittens

We did stop to give them a snack thru the cage bars and for us to use the facilities at the rest stop.

One of the tunnels thru the mountains



The road is very steep and windy but beautiful.  The only down side is a lot of truck traffic - kind of scary with the road so narrow and everyone going so fast.


Loading them up to go to KY!



We were only a little late and had no trouble meeting Lori.  She did the most driving - 3 hours down and 3 more back to KY!  These little kittens and mamacat will have a better chance at finding a new home in KY!  If any of you readers would like to help in a transport - they are always looking for drivers.  Contact Dorian via her blog Your Daily Cute.

Safely in Louisville.

This is no great! If TW had a driver's license, she'd love to do it. We do wonder how the kitties drink water and go to the litter box when they're in transit all day. Kudos to you for helping out.

Good job helping those kitties and the Mom get to their destination. They are some cuties and hope they find a home really soon. Take care.

This is so wonderful. I must be hormonal, because this and Peyton's story, are making me cry. :-)

Well done!

This is wonderful. If there is ever any transport we can help out with through Columbia, SC, we'll see what we can do.

We're so happy to see that you helped those cats get to their destination. The head peep just signed up for Dorian's list of drivers, so you were an inspiration.

Debra Taylor said...

Hey you deserve a medal. So happy they have a better chance for adoption now!
