I moved here in 1988. Ive missed home every since but couldnt get a way to leave. Ive always had two large dogs. Recently my dogs passed away within six weeks of one another. Im griefstricken..so very sad and I have trouble wanting to go on. But I have ten cats who were all rescues and im all they have. I love them all so much. Id never leave them. I want to go back home to arkansas where my sons live. Perhaps being around them and my grandkids will help me cope with my loss. My rottweiler..sugar was about 7'8 ys old when she fell ill and passed away at the vet. Within a month my 16 yr old shepherd mic..squirt also died at the vet. I am lost...nobody even imagines how devistated I am. If I didnt have these kittys that love me and need me I dont know what I would d do. Im all they have and they are all I have. I am disabled and have no vehicle. Does anyone have any advice how to get myself and my "family" back home? Thank you for any advice you can give me and bless you all.

Dear Missmybabies, first all my thoughts to you on your loss's. Sadly thery have journeyed on, but are together . The rescue cats you have are your 10 precious gifts and you are lucky to have eachother. Im not familiar with your town, but sometimes putting an add in the local free paper might attract some assistance. Also the local rescue groups as well as shelters that have volunteers might have some suggestions .The more you spread the word, the better chance you have of help. There are many people that want to help those in need and just don't know where to go. If the transportation company you use for disabilities is contacted, you also might have a chance to get some help. I wish you the best and please keep us posted on your progress. Again, my warm hugs to you and your furkids here and at the bridge. Please join us in the petloss candle ceremony Monday night at 10 pm eastern, or the second sunday of the month at 3 pm eastern. You never know who you will meet in the chatroom.. katmomwolf1

I think you should ask your sons for help. While not optimum to drive 20+ hrs with cats in the car(s) it is possible.
Another thought, and I have not investigated into it personally, is I know that there are some humane societies as well as underground pet networks that have people that will help transport animals. Good luck

I think InMemoryOfRascal has given you the best advice; surely you son(s) would be willing to help?
Another possibility is a group called URRKN - Underground Railroad Rescued Kitty Network; you can find them on Facebook. They seem very, very organized and ultra-careful about their transporters. They seem to "specialize" in rescued cats who are going to new homes, but it would be worth inquiring. Google "pet transport" and I'll bet you find lots of options. I know there's one "company" (small) who will drive door-to-door. I regret that I can't remember the name; again, Google "pet transport" for good leads. And all the very best of luck to you!
