Just got a call from Andrew at DKC to say all 10 have been delivered safely to the airport and are now waiting in the 'live animal holding area'. Bet they love that. Apparently there was some drama getting Louis, Daisy and Roxy into the travel boxes with some snapping going on. In the end they had to corner them a bit. Hope they weren't too stressed. Andrew said they had now settled down in their boxes and were all coping well, both cats and dogs.
Earlier, he called to say that Finlay had damaged his claws a bit in his frantic efforts to get out of the box. Poor Finlay, must be so terrifying for him. Not so long ago he was a semi-feral street cat and is still quite skittish around us sometimes. He ran out the front door this morning and I had to wrestle him to the ground and hang on for dear life so he wouldn't get away. Once he's up the tree and over the wall, that's it, he's gone for the day. Of course, he bit me for my trouble. Can't say I blame him though.
I just checked the airline's website, which says that "10 pieces have been received from shipper". They refer to live animals as 'pieces'?! One hour 45 minutes to go... Safe travels all.
