The ride home with Charm was 12 hours. We had put Charm in a zip pet carrier. Part of it you could not zip so we used 2 safety pins to seal the whole. She howled for a long time. After 10 minuets she had pushed at the safety pins so hard she destroyed them so we let her out. She kept trying to sit on my father but he was driving . So my mother picked her up and petted her. We finally stopped at a restaurant for lunch. After we ate lunch I saved some grilled chicken for her. I also gave her some water. she was more intrusted in the water then the chicken. After 30 minutes my mother bought a new pet carrier.
