Yesterday we were joined on our trip by Bernese Mountain Dog Milo and a troupe of five gerbils from Provence, and a Pug called Maya and Chai the cat (we’re still to get a picture of shy and retiring Chai) from Barcelona.

We spent last night with friends in Narbonne where all our passengers enjoyed breezy walks through the vineyard and by the canal.

Today we’ve collected young Imperi, a Singapura cat bred by Jackie and Stephen. This is a delicate breed of cat and quite hard to rear. Imperi is heading to her new home with Marianne in Surrey.
