Zane was rescued at the eleventh hour from a high-kill shelter by Dogtown Ranch, Elgin, TX. He is being fostered at a private kennel until Friday (Nov. 1), when he will be then be moved to New Iberia, provided we can't get this trip together by Friday.
Weather In S. Louisiana looks good for Wednesday, Friday thru Sunday. Thursday is a bad, high-wind day.
Pilot will need a medium crate for Zane. The only airport I could find near Elgin is Austin but If there is a smaller one on the East side of Austin, that would be great. Just let us know your preference. If we need to break this up into 2 legs (Thibodaux or New Iberia to Houston and Houston to Austin) that is fine with us, provided we can get the trip done In one day. I have no foster to overnight Zane in the Houston area.
Zane is not coughing or showing any ill effects from his HW status, so he should be fine to fly.SUNDAY, 11/03/13: Zane is now at his new "digs" in Elgin, TX, and a death-row cat named Christopher is now with his new adoptive mommy in Spring Branch (Houston). Thanks to Steve Glenn, based at Ellington Field, for doing the entire trip today. His plane was back in the hangar "taking a nap" by 2 p.m. It helped that Daylight Savings Time ended and we had that extra hour! Thanks, Steve.
