Driving to Portland with the Kitties...

We were driving to Portland. We decided to bring the kitties with us. They were both in the small carrier and I was worried about their comfort and stress levels. On the drive, I got some text messages from people I didn't know. They sent photos of themselves all hanging out.
We got near Portland and realized we forgot kitty litter and food. I started to panic as I realized all the things we had forgotten. We stopped for a moment and Dan got out of the car. Then the car was driving again and it took me a moment to realize he wasn't driving it. The car drove itself to a sort of apartment complex. I needed to use a bathroom and figure out what was going on so I went and knocked on a door. I went in and there were three people kickin it in a messy apartment.
I realized these were the people who had sent me the text messages. So auspicious! They invited me in with the kitties and I let them out of the kennel to stretch. But then I realized they had cats and got worried that they'd fight. In the meantime, I tried to call Dan to tell him where I was, but my phone wasn't working. The people seemed nice and tried to get me into playing a board game with them. They had a wall of games, just like at our old house, but messier.
I declined, concerned about Dan and the kitties, and making it to Portland on time. I went outside to see if he was around. The outside was now a sort of ranch/barnyard. The kitties followed me and I tried to keep them corralled in a sort of indoor/outdoor space. There was a man out there, wrapping a dead sheep in a cloth for burial. I grabbed Bisou because she was trying to run and walked over to the man. I started a conversation with him, the whole time eying the sheep skull. I told him that I had no intention of being rude or disrespectful, but that I collected skulls and would love to have a sheep to add to my collection. He thought about it for a moment, while letting me hold the skull. It was cut open and the brains and all other tissue on the animal, for that matter, had a really cheesy texture. It wasn't gross and it didn't smell. The skull was strange - sort of square shaped and with big, square teeth.
He said I could keep it, but mentioned how nice it would be to have some reciprocation of the favor. I jumped up and immediately began trying to figure out what I could give him in return. Meanwhile, Dan arrived, holding Boudika. I told him how weird it was that I arrived at the apartment of the very random people who sent me messages earlier, and I also related that we needed to get litter and food for the kitties. There was a lot of activity going on around us all of a sudden. The messy room behind me was being covered over in a drop-cloth. A man arrived in a big van to wash some windows. I teased him by washing the windows of his van.
I was talking with the man who was burying the sheep and Dan came over to join the conversation. He stepped right on a cluster of Morel mushrooms that I was going to ask if I could cut before we left. I told Dan and he stepped back, then grabbed the mushroom and pulled it out of the ground. It had an enormous taproot, with things hanging off that resemble giant human nerve endings. i scolded him for pulling it up instead of cutting it. The man joined in saying that if you pull the rhizome, the mushroom won't come back again next year.
We were ready to leave and I grabbed the sheep skull. Bisou was hiding under it, eating dead sheep. I got worried that it would make her sick but it was too late now. We got the kitties back in the kennel and in the car and started driving back towards my grandparents' house. It was 8:11 when I looked at the clock and I got worried because no pet stores would be open. Dan said it was fine because they could go to the bathroom outside and we'd find something to feed them. But I didn't want to let them run free at my grandparent's house because it's so wild and expansive. I didn't want them getting lost in the woods.
Then we passed an open-air grocery store and I could smell the cat food and litter. We hopped out and went to buy these things. They had such a huge pet section. I was thanking my lucky stars.
