We travelled deep into a Swedish forest, to a house barely 20 minutes from a freezing-up sea, to collect Rosanne.

We caused a bit of a stir as we went, to the extent that someone called the police! Having pulled us over they decided we were just a bit mad really, and let us continue on our way.

Rosanne is a real people cat. At the B&B she slept under courier J’s bed, appearing at regular intervals on the pillow for cuddles, purring for Sweden the whole time.

She’s huge (nearly 5 kilos), very fluffy and gentle. She’s clearly going to be a big girl — her mum weighs 6 kilos and her dad 8 kilos!

We’re transporting her to Cornwall where a very excited Ann is waiting for her.
