My 90-year-old mother is no longer able to care for her cat, Miss Kitty. I had cared for the cat for 9 months (she was living in my fiance's master bathroom, as I cannot keep a pet in my apt). When my fiance recently learned he has cancer and needs an operation, I wanted to find a good home for Miss Kitty. All of the shelters for cats are full to overflowing in Charleston (especially in the spring & summer months) and they could not accept Miss Kitty, for lack of space (even with a donation). My sister agreed to take her (an ideal solution, allowing her to stay in the extended family), so I needed to ship Miss Kitty from Charleston, SC to my sister in San Diego. I discovered UShip on the internet and got a bid almost immediately from BullyHillbullies. I was very impressed with the 5 star amount of their bid and the stories I read online written by their happy customers. Every one of their many transactions had received a positive response! After corresponding via e-mail with Tonda and getting some questions answered, I felt quite comfortable entrusting our precious cargo with Tonda and Mike. They met my timeframe for pickup and drove speedily cross-country (thru the southwestern desert as temperatures are approaching their high point for the year!) and delivered Miss Kitty safely to a new, loving home with my sister and two other cats! I would definitely use UShip again!
