Cat and dog reunions as our Italian trip reaches the UK

Cat and dog reunions as our Italian trip reaches the UK

When we reached Dover, Donna was at the port waiting to be reunited with Heidi and Bob, who went completely crazy when they saw her.

Once back at our Surrey base, Jacky’s new owner arrived to collect her — a fantastic first meeting with both parties completely delighted.

Then it was Uma’s turn. This 15-year-old puss, whose journey started in Switzerland, was collected by her owner’s mum who’ll be taking care of Uma until she moves to Dublin with Jo.

Meanwhile, Whippet Mucha was back in his owner’s arms after just a couple of days apart.

    What a lot of happy faces!! Poor little Ubasti’s poorly leg – I think that’s a perfect excuse for an extra treat and I hope the leg is alright.

      Ubasti’s leg is healing fast but it’s always a perfect excuse for extra treats!

    Yes, Ubasti is right such an ouchie deserves more treats! Thanks for the reunion photos, it sometimes feels as the world would be a little better that moment :o)

    I’m with Ubasti! But I reckon you should get extra treats for being gorgeous, so that goes for all of them! I so love to see your reunion photo’s! You’re job must be so emotional, I don’ think I would cope!
    Hugs, Carrie and Pups x

      Yup, being gorgeous is reason enough! It is super to see those happy faces.

    Jacky’s gonna be some stiff competition for the tongue contest! Ubasti definitely deserves the extra treats. I know what that feels like (though I didn’t get the fancy pink cast)!

      Considering Jacky is still a pup, she’s going to give stiff competition on the tongue front 😉 There’s something rather splendid about a pink cast!
