Transporting cats from France to the UK

Courier Richard recently made a couple of trips transporting cats from France to the UK. Grizzly Grizzly (so named because as a kitten he looked like a little bear) and his family have swapped Marseille for London.

Jane flew to Marseille in the hope of luring him back, but there was no sign of him. So our courier left empty handed. Fortunately, the second attempt [...]
