Today we set off for Faro, and from there it will be on to Gibraltar. But before leaving Lisbon, we went to collect Gaby from Demetrio and Ligia. Her owner Ronivon is already in England, and her two friends have been looking after Gaby for her. “Gaby is not wishing to travel today,” said Demetrio, who reported that Gaby was proving difficult to catch and perhaps we could help!
Our next port of call was in Setubal, to collect Rosinha and Panda who are travelling to Berwick-on-Tweed to rejoin their owner, Angela, who has relocated there from Portugal. Angela’s mum, Isabel, has been taking care of these two cats since Angela headed off.
Then it was on to Guia in the Algarve, to the Animal Inn, which will be Looklikely and Cornflake’s temporary home while they wait for their owners to join them. It wasn’t long before both cats were out of their baskets and exploring their new surroundings. We love an excuse to visit the Animal Inn, where we always get a great welcome from Diana and Bungie and, of course, the dogs. As well as offering boarding for dogs, they have a little cattery that’s well away from the dogs’ area. They also take in cats for a local rescue organisation and are currently trying to rehome a cat that was abandoned by its owner when she went back to England.
