Animalcouriers are on their way to North Cyprus with a variety of pets who’re all bound for different destinations. 

Biggie and Ginger are Manau’s much-loved rabbits. Manau has been studying in London and is now returning to her home in the Zurich area of Switzerland — and of course, Biggie and Ginger are going too.

Cats Spangle and Toffee are off to North Cyprus. Their owners, June and Len, are driving themselves there via Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey. We speculated that we might get there before them, so they have friends on hand to welcome Spangle and Toffee if need be. When June and Len’s extensive family, including a great-grandchild, saw them off, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

Also on board are three dogs who are heading to the Greek island of Zakynthos. We’ll tell you about them in a separate post.
