Road Trip! Road Trip!

"Attention! Attention! I have an annoucement! Attention, please!"
"Yeah, yeah, Menow. What is it? More about your "royal blood" or that stupid bassinet, excuse me, throne, you sleep in?"
" Shut up, Astro. Menow has something to tell us. We're listening, Menow."
"Rudolph, you always take up for Menow. What are you, his protector?"
"If I may have your attention, please. I do have an important announcement to make that I think all of you will want to hear. I am taking a road trip!"
"A road trip! Menow, cats don't take road trips! What are you talking about?"
"Taffy, I am taking a road trip to sunny Florida! I am going to Tampa Bay. I am leaving tomorrow."
"Menow, can I come, too? You need me, Menow. What about me?"
"Alas, Rudolph, you can't come. I will miss you terribly, and I thank you for watching out for me. I will always remember you. You are a good and true friend."
"Menow! Aren't you coming back? What do you mean, miss me? What's going on?"
"Rudolph, I have a new home with a new mom. Who would have ever thought that someone would want me, but there you have it. I have a new sister, also a royal Burmese named Amy, but I do so wish I could take you, Rudolph. You, I will truly miss."
"No, Menow! Please don't go! You're my friend! Who will wash your face at night? Who will cuddle with you when you are cold? Who will protect you from kitties that want to be mean to you? Menow, take me with you!"
"Rudolph, if only I could! This is the way it is supposed to be. We come together for a while, make wonderful friends, but if we are lucky, someone offers us a new home. I never thought it would happen again for me. But it will happen for you one day. I promise. Your family is out there somewhere."
"Everybody keeps telling me that, but I don't think it's true. I've never had a family, so I don't think I believe them. Menow, you're leaving me. I'm so sad. You were my bestest buddy. I'll be alone, now. I'll never be anybody's special cat. I guess I'm just not special. Menow, I'm happy for you, I really am."
"I will miss all of you. I am taking my throne with me, and I will be transported in style with two attendents. I promise to send word of my new kingdom. Taffy, I apologize for anything I might have done to offend you. Rudolph, don't cry. Please, Rudolph, come back! Don't be sad! I have to go - it's the way this works. George, please watch out for Rudolph. He will need a friend. Good luck to all of you. May each of you find a perfect home with a caring family. I take my leave of you now. George, Henry, Astro, Cosmo, Taffy, Serenity, Macie, Hayley, Skyler, and all those "rats," I wish you a happy life. Rudolph, I will never forget you.

Menow left for his new home in Tampa Bay, Florida with his new owner,
Hana. He is being "escorted" by his attendents, Lori and Emily, and we
wish him the best. We will miss him so much, but we are so happy for him.
Have a great life, Menow! Congratulations to Hana!
