Black cat Miauf and her Labrador companion Kika were reunited with their owners yesterday. Diana and her husband moved to the UK ahead of their pets, and have had time to settle in and start their jobs in nursing and physiology.

They tell us there’s another dog waiting for Kika at home in Reading — a Golden Retriever. We sensed Kika was good with other dogs and now we know why.

Kika was very excited to see her family — lots of licks, kisses and turning in circles
