My best friend had a major stroke and I always promised her, that if anything ever happened to her, that I would take care of her cat.  Well, she lives in Penna. and I now live in Florida.  But a promise is a promise. Now I needed a way to get the cat here and I couldn't go to pick up the cat at this time, since I am a Realtor and this is our busiest time. ; God smiled upon me and helped me with my dilema, via uShip. I posted my shipment and within a day or so, Richard Vickers answered my ad and I accepted his bid.  I received two other bids but the cost was too high. ; Richard made me a reasonable offer, and now since cat has been delivered, I realize the price was extremely low.  He went to pick up the cat in Penna. and they had a hard time finding the cat. It had gotten downstairs and was wedged in a corner trying to hide. They finally retrieved the cat, got it in a carrier and Richard was on his way.  He said the cat cried all the way down. He said he felt bad and left the cat out of the carrier that was too small for the size of the cat. Cat ended up at his feet while he was trying to drive. Had to put cat back in carrier.  Couldn't let cat out anywhere in case the cat would bolt again. While cat was out of carrier, went to bathroom in car and shed all over the place. Wouldn't eat , never been in a car since was brought home from the animal shelter, so the trip, I'm sure, was extremely unpleasant. But good to his word, Richard delivered the cat in very good shape, no worse for the wear and will take some time to get used to its new surroundings. Richard stayed awhile to make sure everything was O.K. and there isn't ;a nicer gentleman you would ever want to meet. Like I said before, he was my angel and I will be forever grateful to him for his gentle nature and thoughtfulness. ; Thank you, uShip for bringing me together with him. If I ever need anything shipped again, the only place I will ever look is  uShip.  God Bless Richard and uShip.    Extremely satisfied customer,  Donna Moyer ;
