This family of pets is travelling with Animalcouriers from the rural haven of Silves in Portugal to the wild and romantic island of Anglesey in Wales. (Wonder if they’ll meet Wills and Kate?)

Spike is a small black cat. Loofy is a not-so-small black cat who loves eating. We’ve been told that the third cat, Kelly is a bit of a Houdini.

Rounding off the quartet is Maxi the dog. His lineage is a bit of a mystery but he definitely inherited the ‘nice’ gene somewhere along the way. His owner Sally was a bit worried about him co-operating, but so far he’s behaved perfectly, taking the trip in his stride as though it’s the sort of thing he does every day.
