I felt helpless and because you are not able to take your pet out of the kennel during flight, it was very hard to console him. After take off I slid the kennel out from under the seat and set it on my lap. From there I squeezed my hand in the side zipper and pet Titi for the next 4 hours. I was able to doze off when he [finally] relaxed only to have the flight attendant tell me it was time to prepare for landing and the kennel had to go back under the seat. Not good! Titi went into a rage and I thought he was going to bust through the fabric. Thank god the guy next to me was a pet lover.
Titi may not be a good flier, but I have to give him props for adaptability! This kitty doesn't mind at all visiting new places. In fact, he seems to love the adventure and exploration that come with a new environment, just like his mama and papi!
Titi is loving the fenced yard at Ernesto's parents and has [not surprisingly] figured out the one hole that will let him escape to the school playground just behind it.
On thing that has suprised me is that mi suegra loves my kitty! (that's right dad!) She (along with all the other Espinoza's) are not pet people but she loves Titi.
Ernesto arrived on Saturday. I wanted to come a couple days early to be sure not to miss Adrianna's (his twin sisters) baby shower. She is due April 4th and has to be one of the most beautiful and glamorous pregnant girls I've seen.

It was fun shopping for a baby gift, and since I am partial to stripes these days, I got her these two adorable outfits. Also the book (pictured right) will be a beautiful documentary of the little niñas first years. Congratulations hermana!
