Faeroplane, coming in for a landing.

"14 Jan.: #kittens curled up in my lap somewhere in the virginia sunset om I81. #kittenscrosscountry"

A few months ago, we crowded into the tiny, opulent Pete’s Candy Store showroom to bid a fond farewell to Chris, our kombucha-drinking, poetry-organizing, Turkish-translating, instrument-concocting friend of good repute and loving humor.

He was leaving to…farm in the desert?



We were puzzled, but supportive. Chris began his cross-country roadtrip to Arizona a handful of days later, and I was INCREDIBLY supportive when I discovered his car’s contents. Behold, his band’s twitterfeed. A thrilling tale of his kitten car ride.


Now that Chris has enigmatically and temporarily returned for a whirlwind weekend involving Pratt art and beers outside and a sweaty dance party after a ladies’ arm-wrestling competition/burlesque show at which I may have been the only person not interested in women, I might as well fill you in on the cats that marked his journey across these United States.

"14 Jan.: Two 5 month old kitten sisters from NYC to Austin. mimi explores. #kittenscrosscountry"

"15 Jan.: Made it to asheville! Some of us were ready for dinner #hungrykittenscrosscountry"

15 Jan.: "Faeroplane oilchange. #kittenscrosscountry #kitten"

"15 Jan.: #Kitten won't need his scarf in NEW ORLEANS! #warmweatherthankyougod #kittenscrosscountry"

"16 Jan.: Finally out of the car, the kids resort to violence"



About bearicaquinn

Smallish, smushy in the sad parts, certainly destined for cat-lady-dom. Enjoys boats, bikes, black coffee, pug faces, sourdough bread, the morning when you have slept long enough, beards, mountainsides, art, rooftops, etc. Will continue to live in things that are interestingly shaped. So octopus.
