              The ferett tux is too long to fit a cat. Maybe it can be altered if I find a skinny enough cat

                  See, Morgan and I are really going to have a problem. Morgan needs her ferrett, and I just cannot go on without bringing all ten of my dogs to Cabo. Seriously. You can only bring two per traveler? Whatever will we do?

                  Sarah- they do have a Mega Store, Costco, and Walmart (I haven't been to the Walmart, but I heard there is one now!). I bought all my snack stuff at the Mega store when we got there. The prices were very comparable to what I would have paid in the US, and I didn't have to mess with packing all that crap. Trust me, as you get closer to travel time, you'll notice that you have less and less room in your precious suitcases! At least I did anyway, all my DIY crap took up so much space!

                    Can you split them up with your guests? 2 dogs per guest?
