My husband and I just moved from Fort Collins, CO to Portland, OR, and figuring out how to get our extremely shy kitty from point A to point B was daunting to say the least. We were so relieved to find Lorry at S.T.A.T., who drove our cat to Portland in our own car. She was responsive, patient, and sensitive from start to finish, including throughout my initial doubts about the recommended crate. (Which worked out beautifully, by the way - trust the expert!)
I was surprised at how emotional I was when it was time for them to leave, but Lorry was so compassionate she really put me at ease. We got regular updates on how Yoshi was doing, and I felt comfortable knowing they took frequent breaks and weren't spending extremely long hours on the road each day. Their time on the road also gave us the opportunity to finish up the move in CO and get to OR in time to meet them.
I wasn't surprised to learn that Yoshi never let Lorry touch him, but she did report the cute interactions they did have. I was also happy to hear he felt comfortable enough to leave his crate in the hotel room each night. His crate also served as a safe place when he wanted to hide.
I feared the worst, but Yoshi was just fine, and he was back to his normal self almost immediately. Lorry was worth every penny and we would recommend her in a heartbeat! If we ever had to move again (hopefully not) we wouldn't consider any other option.
Thank you Lorry!
