This Egge's Adventure

From New York City, a day in my life. I have no idea what I'll write day to day, but living here, I'm bound to have something to talk about!

We Made It!

I just wanted to write a quick post and let you all know that we have arrived in Sydney! We made it through immigration and customs without any problems--they even said "Welcome Home" as we came through. Kind of a strange thought!

We spent our first day travelling to and from the quarrantine facility to visit the cats. They seem to be adjusting well, Lily sat in the corner and growled at us the entire time (this is normal--she does it every time we move, so we think she's doing quite well!) Bastet was still in her cage when we arrived (7 hours after she did). The quararantine attendants said they tried to get her out but she hissed and swatted at them, so they just opened the door and were letting her come out on her own. She finally came out when we got there. She immediately found a small hiding place--which is normal for her. All in all, we think they'll be fine. Brian is going to take some Vegemite with him next time we go--they should be ready and willing to forgive us with that!

We'll be here in Sydney until next Wednesday, so hopefully I'll have a chance to post some more.


P.S. One good bit of news: they have Target in Sydney! The big red bullseye is all over they place. Those of you who know me well know that this has made me really happy!

Okay, I know Brian has some unique tastes in food. (We won't go into his ice cream adventures!) But does he think the cats have inherited it from him or does he think they've embraced the Aussie culture so quickly that they've developed a taste for Vegemite? (I've always wondered if Vegemite was a failed experiment by the British to poison the Germans during WWII.)Give those poor travel stressed kitties a break and take them a big can of tuna!
Anxious to see pictures. (Hint! Hint!)
