Bacon is a bright-eyed, beautifully marked cat who is travelling from the Algarve back to his family in the UK. We were warned he could be quite vocal, and he certainly started off by complaining about my driving skills. Once I’d explained I was not responsible for the potholes in Portuguese roads or the ridiculous speed humps in Spain, he settled down, and now appears to be a perfectly peaceful pussycat.

Bacon the vocal and very friendly cat
