Miski, Cali and Scali have spent the winter on Jersey with Jill and Sheila. Now it’s time for everyone to go home to Crete, where Jill and Sheila do great work looking after stray cats, making sure they get health checks and getting them neutered.
It will be quite a long journey by road for these three cats but, following a less than ideal experience of getting them to Jersey by air, Jill and Sheila are keen to ensure their little family will have a more sedate ride this time around.
We had a bit of spare time on Jersey before catching our ferry to the French port of St Malo, so went to visit the very interesting medieval Gorey Castle (also known as Mont Orgueil Castle). A bit puzzled not to be asked for an entry fee, we wandered in and had a good look around. Feeling ready for a Jersey crab sandwich and wanting to check on our charges, we went to leave, only to find the huge exit door firmly locked!
After testing every door we could find and flapping our arms to try and attract attention, we finally resorted to ringing 999! The police quickly found a key-holder and 10 minutes later our very own knight in shining armour had released us.
