New York Couple And Their Two Cats Complete 2,500 Mile Cab Ride

(AHN) -- The Sedona Kitty Express, a cab that traveled a 2,500-mile ride from New York to northern Arizona, reached its destination on Monday. The couple, Bob and Betty Matas, who wanted to make the long journey comfortable for their two cats Pretty Face and Cleopatra, decided to hire cab driver Douglas Guldeniz's Ford SUV for a $3,000 per day flat rate plus gas, meals and lodging.

The couple, who rode nearly 10 hours a day, said they were "flabbergasted" by the kind of attention they received in every state they crossed. Everyone recognized the couple and in Sedona, Arizona the Mayor himself welcomed the couple at a noontime ceremony Monday, presenting them with a bag of Sedona souvenirs.

If this was not enough, they were also presented with the keys to their new home during the ceremony. They will be staying in a hotel for a few days until their house in the Village of Oak Creek, a community just south of Sedona is completely settled.
