Everyone’s favourite ‘alley cat’ made the final leg of her journey when Animalcouriers took her from Surrey to Morpeth, where she was delighted to be reunited with her adoring owners.

Having become an Animalcouriers ‘frequent flyer’ with three return trips between France and the UK to her name, this is probably the last time she’ll be on our passenger list as her owners have decided to stay in the UK.

They found her at a rescue centre in France. Prawns were her treat of choice in that land of gastronomy — we wonder what will be her favourite snack now?

With one eye missing and no tail to her name, Alikat/alley cat suits her — but her real name is Alice and very beautiful she is too.
