Safe At Last!!

. . .The magic flying van safely returned Opus, Roscoe, Karl, Ruis, Momo, and myself to the lodge. We were all so curious about how Karl and Ruis came into possession of the magic flying van. Photo by Karl

. . . Karl and Ruis explained that after their failed rescue, they found a safe field to land their helicopter on. They were frantically trying to come up with a new rescue strategy when they spotted the magic van flying low over the African plains. With paws waving wildly, they meowed at the top of their lungs in hopes that the van would spot them. Their tactics worked and the van came in for a landing . . . when Karl got into the MFV he was so surprised to find that the van was empty . . . the MFV was flying itself!! We all know the the MFV is magical and it turned out that the van wanted to go on a long vacation. After taking cats and dogs all over the world, the van was ready for a little vacation of its own. The MFV left a note for Opus and Roscoe, who were taking a cat nap when the van decided to leave, but the note was never found.


After spending an afternoon in a sandpit we all settled in back at the lodge for some well deserved R&R. Opus and I enjoyed the cool water of the pool while washing the sand out of our fur. Momo and Roscoe were so happy to have the van back, that they spent hours sitting in the front seat while Karl and Ruis made themselves comfortable on the roof of van, making sure it wasn't about to leave again.

. . . as night fell over the Africa plains we were all so happy to be safe and be together that we all curled up together and snuggled down for a well deserved sleep.

. . . the MFV parked itself outside and had happy thoughts about it's long summer of traveling.

All is now safe and peaceful in Africa once again.
