Animalcouriers waved goodbye to Stathis as he set off on the final leg of his journey, while Jackie called in to collect cats Melassa and Oscar. We suggested Oscar might like to take his Zen garden!

We then set about delivering Mouser, Gracie and Tiger, and Ruben, Red and Hugo, to their UK homes. Bo, who’d flown in from Cyprus, hitched a ride. She spent last night at Heathrow Airport’s animal reception centre, where we collected her this morning to drive her to her home in Southport.

Mouser, seen here, and her companions Gracie and Tiger were delighted to reunited with Antonia, who told us how she came to adopt these three while living in Cyprus. Mouser was found as a kitten small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the only survivor of a litter by a busy road. Tiger was found in a skip, having survived a wild and stormy night. And Gracie was a stray who had a litter of kittens on Antonia's doorstep. Good homes were found for her kittens, and Gracie felt the love and decided to stay. From Cyprus they all moved to Italy, and are now starting the next chapter of their lives in the UK.

… and Hugo were ready to explore their new home as soon as their paws reached the ground. Although the house isn't quite ready yet, this handsome trio have been provided with everything their hearts could desire — a playhouse, scratching posts, beds, toys, tasty treats and a row of litter trays. There were lots of happy purrs, including from courier S who was lucky enough to be given a yummy box of chocs to nibble on during her onward journey!

Kopeic — Bo to her friends — was found by her owners as a tiny stray puppy and has grown into a long-legged beauty. She was over the moon at being reunited and there were lots of loving cuddles for her before playtime in the garden.
