Genie (who was Eugene up until a couple days ago when he went to get neutered and came back spayed, haha! Surprise!) is a spunky kitten who was saved from Miami Dade Animal Services. She was there with her two siblings, and the two of them got adopted... but Genie was left behind. I posted her sweet fuzzy picture on the Cute's Facebook page, and Cutehead Leigh G. immediately fell in love. We can't leave him there by himself, she said!
|Eugene's shelter picture stole all our hearts!|
She's been hanging out with our wonderful rescue friend, Maribel M., in Miami and generally just running around her house like a crazy kitten -- and today she gets to hop in a car and head up through all of Florida to meet her mom in Pensacola!
|Genie SAFE out of the shelter!|
As we were planning her road trip, I noticed another group, Imagine Home, was looking for drivers in Florida for a cat named Peter. I took a look at his route, and it turns out he was going a lot of the same way as Genie... So I suggested that we pick Peter up along the way and team up so they could share a ride!
And now it wasn't just a Genie road trip... it is a Genie and Peter road trip!
|Peter's sweet face. Of course he found a home!|
Peter was also saved from a kill shelter up in Sanford, FL (near Orlando) by a rescue group called Aristocats. They got him out just in the nick of time and have been searching for a wonderful home for him. Luckily, one turned up! A woman named Kristie wanted to adopt him, but she was all the way in Tallahassee.
"Only Tallahassee?!" us transport people said. No worries! You give Peter a home, and we'll get him to you!

And so the caravan of Cuteheads started together!
Eight drivers will be taking turns on the road all day to get these two sweet kitties home. The trip will start around 7 a.m. from Miami and end probably around 10 p.m. (Eastern time) when Genie gets home.
If you want to follow along, I'll be tweeting as @YourDailyCute using the hashtag #GenieAndPeter and posting tons of updates on Your Daily Cute's Facebook page throughout the day!
Let's cheer these babies and all the wonderful, amazing drivers on today!
