Remember to always bend at the knees.

G-Man is pissed off at us. Not just “you won’t give me peanut butter and I hate you. I hate you, I wish I was never born” kind of mad. We’re talking the all out, rolling his eyes when we speak to him, huffy, I won’t even look at you kind of mad. Oh yes. He’s pulling out the big guns.

All because he knows we’re moving.

I swear it’s like he’s got some sort of weird ability to understand things. Not even on an sensory level. He remembers. He hates moving, because I’ve done it so much in the last few years. When I moved to my last apartment? He unpacked my dishes while I was at work, as if to say “no, I think we’re good right here. Let’s just put this stuff back, shall we?” When we moved here, we shoved him in a 35″x24″ section of the car for 4 days. He was beyond pissed through that whole ordeal. Meanwhile, Miss M. has no idea what’s going on. She could care less. He’s just so codgedy and set in his ways, he doesn’t want to think about having to deal with getting used to a new place (or worry about being locked in a car for four days). Even if that new place has a fenced in yard for him to run around in.

Plus? We already sealed up the box containing the dishes.

awww poor gman. makes me think of that heartbreaking look our dog gives us when we leave him at the kennel to go on vacation. you know, the “but i love you! how could you leave me here?” look. and then he gives us cold shoulder for a week when we get back.

Sealed the box? Come now, you don’t think he has contingency plans for just such a shift in strategy?

I’m with Jonathan on this one…

With no dishes to play with,
he may decide to display his chagrin
on something a little more personal…

Is the G-Man into shoes?

Our dogs start acting weird the minute that a suitcase comes out of a closet. They’re smarter than we think, which is a scary scary thought.

When are you moving? We’ve been in boxes for so long, I think the cats think it’s part of our new decor. At first they were freaked, now they barely bat an eyelash. I think we’ll catch them off-guard. Heh.

Remember, its kinda like dictators of small middle eastern nations – the one in power might be bad but the one behind him might suck worse. It could be a drawer full of your undies!

Awww, poor g-man! Good luck with the move!

Poor thing!!! Good luck with the move…and may everything arrive in one piece (knock on wood).

our cats never really seem to give a shit when we move. they act funky for about a day until they figure out where everything is and then they’re fine. I think they like this new place better though b/c they get to chase each other up and down the stairs.
