So my husband and I are expecting twin boys this June. Our lease ends in July and we are moving back to our hometown across the country as I'll have finished school in May and all our job prospects and interviews are popping up in another state. We also own two of the sweetest most cuddly, loveable, playful cats, who are about 5 years old.
I'm so very sorry to whomever gets stuck on a plane with us, but it's looking like the best way to move across the country is for me and my saintly parents (3 adults) to tackle the two monthish old boys and our two small cats in one southwest carrier on a flight (we'll fly southwest), while my husband stays behind to close up shop and get our possessions moved. We considered driving the cats, but ultimately rejected the idea over too many concerns (a single driver with pets to manage - and the cats tend to shy away from my husband, but feel secure with me, plus 3-4 days of travel trauma versus one awful day of travel).
I've searched all the cats and kids forums and no one else seems to be this insane. It is insane! But it also is probably the best way to do things as we move. So any thoughts on how to manage the circus? Has anyone successfully managed the feat?
