Hannah and the CoalBear: Hannah heads to New Zealand on Sharon Air

Hi. I’m Hannah.

I got into my Blueberry box really early Friday morning while I was waiting for the next clue in the Sharon Air MKAL.

I was so excited while I was waiting for the clue 2 to arrive so I could know where we were heading next to catch Chad the Mongolian Death Worm who had stolen the priceless Golden Bag of CAT TREATS. He had been last seen in Cairo wearing a parka, so I knew that I was catching a flight to somewhere cold, but I never expected that I would he heading to… New Zealand. Oh. It’s winter there. The other thing that I didn’t expect was that I would be flying…

Litter Class!!!

Yeah. Litter Class is like coach in people airplanes. It’s towards the back part of the plane and all of the litter boxes are there at the back of the section. You don’t get a nice chair, or a cardboard box, or a blanket, or anything to sit on.

I really like blankets, but they wouldn’t let me use mine on the plane. I didn’t want to make a scene because it you act like an Eejit on the plane you get a parachute and get escorted to one of the exits… Sharon really doesn’t tolerate any in-flight nonsense!!

You are assigned your own spot on the floor and have to stay there. You need sharp claws because you need to dig in really, really hard during the takeoffs and landings or you’ll slide into some other cat’s territory, and you know how that is going to end up. Personally, I don’t like inter-cat conflict all that much, so I really used my claws! We did get a nice Fancy Feast meal and there was an interesting bird movie, but I was so glad when we landed in Auckland… only, our flight continued on to New Plymouth because we had to go to Mt. Taranaki because that’s where that annoying beyond belief Death Worm (named Chad) slithered off to with the CAT TREATS!! What a beautiful mountain! Why did he take the treats there, and what am I going to do to get my paws warm again!!! I hate cold!

Seriously, I spent the weekend working on the shawl with the Mother of Cats.
Here’s Clue 2 all knitted up! The Mother of Cats made almost no mistakes because I gave her lots and lots of support.

The Mother of Cats also took nice breaks to give me kitty cookies (I don’t work for free!! Seriously, what were you thinking of?), and even with the breaks we were done by the end of Monday.

Sigh. Now we have to wait until this Friday for the next clue. I wonder where we are going next? I would love to go to somewhere tropical with lots of fish to watch. Good think I still have one baby bunny in the yard to watch.

Well, that’s all the news.

This is Hannah, signing off.

The Mother of Cats is so bored she is knitting this pair of socks in the airport while we wait for the next clue to drop…

  1. Oh you are a ridiculous woman !! [grin] – and you appear to be the mother of at least one ridiculous cat ! What fun you and your household are having ..!

    1. Oh, sometimes it is best to embrace ridiculous! Seriously, I’ve been having a tough time and couldn’t knit for a few weeks because of tendonitis, but I’m back now!! Yay, Sharon Air.
      Hannah: Oh, if you want to see ridiculous, may I present Mateo the CoalBear as the prime example…

  2. Hannah is a lot more ambitious than my two, Shadow and Streak, who are still boarding the plane. Luckily they are big fans of Fancy Feast (with gravy, please) so they will be enjoying the flight (aka sleeping).

  3. Sounds like you and Mother of Cats are having a great adventure on this trip! The shawl looks great and so glad to hear you are both having so much fun 🙂 Can’t wait to hear about the next part of your trip!

  4. What an adventure, I’m off in my own adventure tomorrow and seriously hoping my seat isn’t in litter class too and they have seatbelts. My nails aren’t great for clinging on. No knitting at the airport for me as KLM don’t allow knitting needles or crochet hooks on their planes except in checked in luggage.
