We recently posted about Carla the cat, who was taken on by Conrad after her owner died. Unfortunately his existing cats weren't very welcoming to Carla, so he needed to find a new home for her. The great news is she's been adopted by Heidi, who's had rescue cats before. She's already settling in well and is looking forward to showing Heidi's Springer Spaniel just who's boss around the house. Well done Katz Castle for finding a home for Carla.
Little April the Yorkie is smaller than most of the cats we have on board! She was brought to our hotel and is on her way to a very excited Maria.
Fifi has been staying at the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens, from where we've collected quite a number of dogs on recent trips. It seemed strange going there for just one dog this time! Fifi has been chosen by an adopter in England and is now on her way.
Daisy patiently watches all the comings and goings in the Animalcouriers van. "If I look very pretty, will it be my turn next?"
We were enjoying a coffee with George and Suzanne when Trisha arrived with Rupert. They had taken the overnight ferry from Poros. We all oohed and aahed over Rupert who is a real cutie.

It was rather like a cat rescue club, as everyone met for the first time and exchanged stories of how they had come by their cats. [...]
George and Suzanne brought their two cats to us for their journey. Both are rescue cats. Potifer Oliver Moppe was found in their neighbour's garden in a flower pot, that was balanced on a mop. He had been poisoned. Zachery Pared Pinkerton was named as follows: Zachery because he was fed on sugar water as he was very sick; Pared because he was found on a wall, and 'pared' is Welsh for wall; Pinkerton because he was so pale and pink when he was found. George is a big softie and very proud of the two cats. "They're like our [...]
Cordelia has been fantastic, bringing all the cats from Nine Lives Greece to us for the journey to the UK. She knew all about each cat's personal idiosyncrasies, describing them all as she unloaded cat box after cat box from her car.
Once Daisy, Midget and Gnasher were safely on board, Animalcouriers continued on to collect Froso the cat from Barbara. Fortunately, Barbara had catching Froso down to a fine art, and we were able to get him into the van without too much trouble. Froso ready to board
