Animalcouriers collected beautiful grey Maow high in the hills above Ancona. A party of well-wishers was there to wave her off on her journey to rejoin her owner Ben in Sussex.

We also met up with gorgeous, wide-eyed tabby cats Harlequin and Moonbeam in Brindisi. Rescued by Ruth while she was on holiday in Sicily, they’ve been staying with Sabrina who owns a small kennels in the Brindisi area, and are now off to start a new life with Ruth in Inverness, Scotland.

Maow's passport photo makes her look like Europe's most wanted feline! Doesn't really do her justice, does it?
