Suzy the dog is travelling with her feline friends Lucky and Ceefa from Portugal to the UK.

All three were strays who’ve really landed on their paws with their family.

Suzy is a Labrador-Collie cross who as abandoned as a puppy at the gates of her home in Pera. The family took her straight in and she has spent some wonderful times on their 18-acre smallholding. She’s a lovely friendly dog with a very waggy tail.

Lucky was found as a six-week-old kitten curled up in the horse’s stable, and was given her name as she was fortunate to survive. She seems to know she’ll always be safe with her family and is happily curled up in her bed in the Animalcouriers van.

Ceefa is another stray taken in the by same lovely family. All three animals are travelling with their own individual food parcels. Ceefa’s parcel includes Portuguese sardines — in tomato sauce of course!
