Gato is becoming quite the correspondent, keeping us up to date with how he's settling in to his new home in the UK: Dear friends, on Tuesday I arrived in England after a very long journey through Portugal, Spain, France and finally the Channel Tunnel, mostly in the company of barking dogs and a quiet tortoise, but two nice ladies looked after me and fed me treats. (I still like girls even though apparently I've had the operation!) Marea and David came for me in the afternoon and I slept most of the way back in my new basket to [...]

No-one seems to think missing part of his leg will be too much [...]
As courier J prepared in North Cyprus, courier M collected the van and set off for Tasucu. His journey was not uneventful — the ferry he was heading for had been cancelled due to high winds. As he wasn't confident that the van's aircon had been fully gassed, courier M used the time on his hands to have it seen to. Meanwhile, in TRNC Plan C is underway. Courier J and Margaret from KAR have spent time with Firdez the vet, getting the paperwork signed, stamped and initialled, and arranging for health checks in Turkey, It is important to remind [...]
Courier J caught up with the people who are at the heart and soul of Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR) — or 'the coalface' as they put it. These half-a-dozen stalwarts have a very well run office that deals with over 20 calls a day, appeals for and offers of help, sick and injured animals, and visitors who just drop in for a chat! Pat, Kim, Nicky, Margaret, Stuart, Kathy
Animalcouriers delivered adorable Scotties Monty and Fitzy to Heathrow airport yesterday, ready for their flight to Chile. Both were completely laid back and relaxed and took everything in their stride. We wish these remarkable fellows all the very best for their new life ahead. Monty and Fitzy
