What are the odds?

Somehow manage to trap neighbor's cat on moving truck for two days in which said cat will ruin queen matress when using it as a litter box; then discover cat, 350 miles later, and lose it in the woods behind parents' house when aforementioned half starved, terrified cat flees in panic upon being discovered by angry movers who are overwhelmed by the sight of ruined matress and strong stench of amonia? check.

Be the only one who finds this worthy of quite a good long belly laugh? check.

Oh my goodness, Abby. That is really hilarious. How do the neighbors feel about it?
Glad to hear that you arrived. How was your stop along the way?

I could NOT BELIEVE that when Bobby told me...sad for the neighbors, sad for your mattress, but at least George found the reason for the ammonia smell, and yes, that is pretty funny :)

Yowza, Abby! That's quite a moving story. Maybe some good news is that the cat didn't destroy anything else?

Oh my goodness! That is awful, Abby! We are back in town and I would love to have y'all over when you feel settled enough for that. Will you e-mail me your number once you have a free second? (no rush! I know y'all have been completely overwhelmed!)

Best moving story I've heard. Too bad there's no video. I do feel bad for the neighbors and for your mattress, though.

Glad you're there safely.

Abby,
That is really, really awful. Just want you to know that we are praying for your move/adjustment. I don't have your email, as my old hard drive broke and we haven't invested in completely retrieving the old info...so, is George interested in a position with youth? If so, let us know because our church is hiring and it's the best church/area ever, ever! We would sure love to have ya'll.
