It’s Friday, and Moving Day is Near

This moving stuff is pretty stressful.


Lil’ Hiss and I talk about what’s going on.

We have all be up-at-arms about the changes being made to our household.


Malachi has taken to lying by Jen’s feet when she’s using the computer.

Stuff put in boxes. Stuff moved around. Lots and lots of cleaning.


MEOW! I am opposed to change….. unless it’s change that I initiate.

Jen says things will be better, but I dunno about that.


DeDe is especially fearful. But she’ handling it well.

We’ll just be glad when it’s over with.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  5. Moving is never fun but I am sure that Jen is doing her best to make it as easy as possible for all of you!

  6. Poor Babies. I hate moving with a passion. Good Luck.

    Thanks for taking on Steve. I’m sure he gets bored arguing with only me. As you can see; he has lots to say and sometimes he hits it closer to right than I care to admit. I like him coming by to comment and I like that others will do battle with him as well. Overall; I think the give and take with Steve is a good experience. It’s kind of funny. Last week he wrote a comment intended to bait me but I told him I didn’t buy it. I said I can be baited but not so lamely. he immediately wrote back with some great stuff designed to push some of my buttons. Great fun and good discussions. Life is good.

  8. Moving is unbearably hard and not being able to communicate that with the animals especially hard 😦 you will be surprised at how well the babies adjust! they take our lead and once we settle..as long as we are there as their pack..they do just fine..best of luck and hope all goes smoothly πŸ™‚

  9. It’s impossible to believe that things will be better. But they WILL! You just need to put one paw in front of the other till the hard stuff is finished. Then there’ll be nothing to do but cuddle and celebrate that you’re all together.

    Love and licks,

  10. We know moving is very hard especially with animals. We are hoping and praying that things go as smoothly as possible so you can be settled soon.

  11. We hope that your move goes smoothly and that everyone can be comfortable in their new home. Moving is stressful, so remember to take some quiet time with each other and relax.

  12. You guys have to look at it like an adventure! We’ve moved a lot, even over the ocean and it is always so fun and exciting to have a new place to call home…just think of all the new smells and friends!

  20. Based on all of your posts about moving maybe I should think again about wanting to move. Except from moving out my parents home, I’ve never moved. I get anxious just thinking about it.

    Good luck. I hope everything goes smoothly.

  24. I know Rumpy, all those boxes and stuff can be stressful, but you and your pack will do just fine! Woooooowoooooo, Ku

  25. WE can’t EVEN imagine MOVING… it is bad enough to just go on a weekend get away…

  27. Good luck, Rumpy! I finished moving stuff in yesterday, but have to work today, so haven’t had a chance to set up too much. Lucy and Max handled it pretty well, but Coco & Izzy aren’t too happy.

  28. I move a lot, so I think the cats have more stress if I stay in one place for two years. Hope all goes well for everyone and it becomes a happy family affair!

  29. Oh Rumpy and all… I know it is such a tough time. But if Jen says it will be better then in no time at all I bet it is. Paw pats Savannah

  30. Moving is exhausting! It only seems like yesterday you were moving in!!

  31. Moving is an upheaval, take care of your kitty pack…they really hate it!

    Posted by wigglebuttryker | July 5, 2013, 3:45 PM
  32. I hate moving more than almost anything, but it’s always better once you’ve moved. I hope you new place is much better! Should I send the panda kindergarten to help move the small breakable things? ha ha, just kidding!

  33. Wishing you all the best. Sending light to Dede. Don’t let your ears hang, everything will be alright. We think of you. Brad (the ram) said he’d like to help you. I’d be careful with him though. Sheep eat books.

  34. I hope all went well Jen. I remember how stressed I was moving with my two cats and dog. Hoping Miss DeDe is settled in too.

  36. Moving is so, so stressful. Look after yourself and try to find some ‘me’-time in the middle of it all πŸ™‚

  37. So sorry you have to go through this stress. Take care and we’ll be sending you good thoughts that all goes smoothly. Paulette, Max& Bella

  38. I think a round of Rescue Remedy for everyone – including Jen – may be helpful!! It’ll be ok!! πŸ˜€

  41. Gorgeous pictures Rumpy. Good luck with the move.

  42. No more hassles with the inconsiderate landlord will be a bonus though! OurPeople are sending virtual sore muscle massages and lots of love and good wishes. And us kitties are purring for everyone to soon be settled in, well-rested and worry-free (especially Sweet DeDe). OurPeople say they will never move because they really DO have too much stuff!

  43. Having moved only once in her life typist vowed never again! Hope the move is over with soon and you all settle really quickly!
