Now that the end of the "monsoon" rains appears likely by Friday, 01/18, we'd like to get some of these headed to Houston to find their loving families. These have been stacking up due to inclement weather, so we have an assortment of critters who need a ride.
Trip would be to Houma (HUM) to pick up the Beagle and at least 5 kittens, then on to New Iberia (ARA) to pick up the remainder. All will continue on to Houston. Prefer KAXH (Houston Southwest) or KLVJ (Pearland) or even Sugarland. You would be doing us a huge service, however, so we're flexible on Houston-area airports.
Pilot will need to furnish crates, with the exception of the kittens who may be coming in cardboard carriers.
If this is too many for one trip, we can always break this up into 2 legs: Houma to Houston and a New Iberia to Houston. Weather forecast looks good for Friday, 1/18 thru Wednesday, 1/23. We can be ready to go with very little lead-time.
