So the count down has started ... its a month and 3 days till I go to BC and see Mattie ( name change to McKenzie) and bring her home ..I am so excited I can hardly wait. I will be driving 10 hours one way to go get her ..I have a friend coming with me so it wont seem like 10 hours of traveling... I have her cage already and will be keeping her in my bed room for about 4-6 weeks for quarantine then she will come out to the living room with Tyrion and Lagatha ... I am so happy to be bring this lil lady home she hasnt been doing very well in a rescue situation ..they say she is quite and seems shy and scared but healthy ...she is eating well on raw whole foods and pellets with some seed... I will be transferring to a solid raw whole food diet and home made seed slowly over a few weeks and see how she does .. Im so very excited !!!!!

She is coming home like a baby from NICU. Being prepared is the biggest thing. If I'm correct you have decorated and redecorated the cage a couple hundred times. Put in toys take out toys, rearranged food dishes water bowls. I know I did that when Sweet Pea was coming here ( I miss her little stinker butt) am I right?

Well they are doing road construction on the high way Ill be driving to go to BC during the time I was planning on going and the detour will add 1.5 hrs to my travels each way . So now I have to decide if I will go before the construction starts or after it starts on the 20 of April and ends 21 of may . So I dont know what to do if I go before I could run into bad weather and if I go after thats 2.5 weeks later I have to wait . What would you do if you were me ?:confused:

So now I have an issue do I fly and bring her back in cabin in a carry cage or do I drive ..It going to cost about the same either way ..Flying I will have to rent a car to drive to and back from the rescue ..If I drive I will have a long drive to and back ...Im just not sure what to do ... Flying might be better since I can make it a one day trip but I hate flying and will have to arrange someone to take me to and from the airport... Im at a loss ..have alot to think about :confused:

Congratulations! She looks beautiful, I hope picking her up will go smoothly. Waiting must be sweet torture! Can’t wait to hear about her settling in her new home:)
