Ten fabulous cats and their owner are making an epic journey to a new life on the Isle of Mull on the west coast of Scotland.

Yesterday morning Animalcouriers collected them in the mountains above Lake Geneva, drove them across France, then crossed to England. Today they’re heading to Scotland and the Isle of Mull crossing.

Every one of these 10 cats found or chose their human. All were strays who decided that the food and board at the Swiss mountain house was too good to resist, and have stayed ever since. The oldest cat is Patsy, 19 and a half years young, and completely up for her new Scottish adventure.
