So it was starting to get hot, and my next stop was Bakersfield, where I have a sister. But while in Gilroy my car got extremely hot inside, too hot for a long haired kitten. And unless my car is moving, the air conditioning doesn't pick up, and it was going to be a while before it would cool off. So I had a bottle of water and poured it on the kitten, but that only helped a little. To make matters worse, there was construction on the highway to the intersection of highway 152, so I just had to crawl for an hour. The poor kitten was laying on my lap, panting like a dog because of the heat, and I was getting nervous that she wasn't going to make it. But I finally got to the intersection and on the highway, the a/c kicked in, and while I was freezing fo for the next three hours, the kitten was back to herself. She couldn't sit in the window anymore because it was too hot, but she liked sitting on my shoulder, or right behind my neck. When I got to Bakersfield, my sister and her kids met the kitten, who wandered around the house like she lived there.
