Another rescue flight and the International Market
Mike needed to travel to Phoenix this week and his awesome friend Kraig was willing to pick him up in Tijuana and drive him and the cats up to the rescue in Orange County. To get both cats up there I flew to Tijuana as well. Unfortunately, when we went to check in we found out we had the wrong carriers for the cats. In a panic we called our taxi driver and begged him to buy some hard cases at Petco and meet us at the airport. It was the most incredibly tense hour I have had in a long time. We moved the cats into cages and rushed to security. Both cats needed to get out again so they could x-ray the cages. Mike opened Stripey's cage and he popped right out ready to explore. I opened Mootchie's cage and she had glued herself to the back of it. I turned it upside-down and shook it and no dice. She would NOT come out and all of the security officers laughed as I struggled to pull her out. In the end they just looked the cage over and sent us on our way.
The flight was uneventful and Kraig was waiting for us across the brige in San Diego. I help load the cats in and headed back into Tijuana airport for an epic five hour wait for my flight back. It was a long dull day and the Starbucks had no coffee drinks available (no espresso) so I was forced to wait with tea.
