Ten years ago, one of the Caturday regulars - AlienNarrr! - was dealing with cancer and had mentioned her  desire to travel just in case her health did not improve. So a few of us hatched a plan to fly her down to the US (she lives in Canada) and have her escort a shelter cat to her new home. (Of course there was a cat involved!)

Caturday regulars and lurkers alike generously donated all the funds necessary to make this invasion happen. So we brought her to Binghamton, NY where we held possibly the first ever Caturday Fark Party. Much hilarity ensued, much alcohol was consumed, and we all had a blast.

She then flew Vanna the cat to her new home in Texas, and from there embarked with an escort and proceeded to drive all over the eastern half of the US, stopping to meet dozens of Caturday people along the way. And that is what the 2011 Alien Invasion Tour was all about.

I've been exchanging messages with AN over on FB and she approves of this thread and wants to participate. Once she's signed onto Fark I'll make certain she has TF so she doesn't have to wait until Saturday morning.

QJ would be so proud of her! ♥♥

I remember that!
I think I was still lurking then...

A small windfall means we will have shelter from when we have to leave the house til we have a new place.  Spouse has been busy arranging a foster or new home for the two cats as well as transport there.  Still a LOT of uncertainty...

I remember the Invasion, wanted to meet Alien, but she didn't stop close enough.  I might have still been lurking much of the time back then.

I drove several hours to get to Lexington, KY to join the party there.

I wasn't exactly lurking back in 2011, but I certainly wasn't as active as I am now with Caturday.

Wow I think that was right before I started coming in on a regular basis but Isaac and the roommate were living with me at the time. Wow where did the last ten years go? Well now I feel old and I am going to go cry now.

That is great news sweetie. Even a brief reprieve is helpful. Hugs!

For some reason, I was thinking the cat she was escorting was Delta.
I wonder how Delta and Vanna are doing post Invasion tour?

Maybe I'm confused, but I thought Delta was one of the kittens in cretinbob and domari's care.

I remember Delta as being special needs and they were going to keep her.  Vanna was her mom.

I agree, but I suspect she's kind of busy nowadays since nursing tends to keep you on your toes, especially during a pandemic.

Okay and thank you for clearing that up. I wasn't really a regular back then but I remember cretinbob posting pictures of Delta.

Well that's not nothing!
I too hate uncertainty,  so I'd be too focused on that to stop and be pleased for what has been accomplished.

Yay for shelter!
We all pray and hope etc etc etc that the rest will fall into place.

Oh funny!
In my phone the emoji is actually black cat.  Transfer to Fark and it became cat with black color box!  Funny!
