We finally finished packing our UPak cubes and following all the instructions got them wrapped, strapped, stickered and ready to go!
Friday the UPak people picked them up at our house and they are on their way. In 4 to 6 weeks they should arrive.
I have arranged to have them unpacked remotely from our apartment and loaded into a van and then the team of movers will take them to our apartment.
SO final steps. Our nephew Dave and his girlfriend Shira came by yesterday and packed up what they want to take. Their moving truck comes Monday afternoon. Then the house will be empty except for a couple of boxes and some carpet that goes to the storage unit.
We have an appointment Monday afternoon at our Vet to get the cats checked over and the Italian forms filled out. This must be done no more than 10 days before departure.
We go to Settlement on the house on Tuesday morning. Then we have to pack up our enormous suitcases along with the cats and head to my sister’s house at the Wintergreen resort until Sunday.
Finally we sell our car Monday and and fly out Tuesday.
Next thing for me to worry about is getting us and our cats through TSA. I will report back once it’s done. We have purchased little harnesses and leashes so they can’t get away in the terminal.
