    Just heard from the lady in Russellville who helped me find the house, when I mentioned having to give up the goats and chickens:

    >>Ummm...honey, you can have a cow in the city limits here...I think up to 6 or 8...if you have a 4 foot enclosed pen and do not allow her to run at large, she's legal...

    So I can take her with! I can have up to 10 chickens or other poultry.

    I looked on the city website and checked the animal control regs and somehow missed the link to that. I was checking about my pit. (shhh, she's actually a boxer/shepherd mix. She can pass, she's real delicate boned, long legs and snout, not one of the "gator heads")

    Hmmm.... DH is NOT going to be thrilled.....oh well, he'll get over it.

    (but it will be an interesting trip with the dogs, cats and chickie in the car. Yup, definately getting one of those K-9 barriers for the back compartment of the Jeep!

    Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions and homes even though everyone was so far away!

    Traded my little car for a monster 1986 Suburban. Might cost me $300 in gas to get there, but plenty of room for all the animals and I can tow my 49 Plymouth. It would cost around $600 to have it shipped, so that works out! I can always trade it for something else once I get there.

    Glad you get to keep the menagerie! But, I have to take this off topic for a moment... What model Plymouth do you have? I have a 50 Special Deluxe that is 65% done. Those old cars are heavy, hope you have a good towing kit on that Suburban!

    Quote:1949 Plymouth Deluxe 4 dr, weighs in at about 3049 according to specs
    the chevy and the hitch is rated for 9500lbs/5000 dead weight
    my 49 drive really good but needs some cosmetic work.
