Following a house fire, Joan and her six dogs and 10 cats have relocated from County Leitrim in Ireland to Valencia in Spain. The dogs and cats are all delightful, friendly creatures who took to travelling with Animalcouriers like ducks to water.
As you may imagine, moving such a large family poses quite a few logistical challenges. One issue was that it wasn’t possible to match Joan’s arrival date and ours. Fortunately, we found the Casa Antigua kennels and cattery in Denia, that could take Joan’s pets until she gets to Valencia. Run by Mel and Sue, it’s a fabulous place for dogs and cats to stay. We were particularly impressed by their kindly attitude and their obvious love of working with animals.
The dogs have their own compound with beds dotted about, shady places to snooze, and space to dash about when they want to. Lots of cuddles and a meal were on offer, too. And the cats got the top floor of the house with their very own rooftop garden. There are places to hide and jump, and plenty of food, water and litter trays.
