Animalcouriers met up with Yvonne and her family in St Colomb de Lauzun in south-west France to deliver their cats Basil and Pixel. The family were waiting to visit the local school for their eldest son. From there we headed towards Toulouse where Donal and his brother were waiting for Siku and Bastille.

While he was working in Bordeaux, AA Relay officer Paul was discovered by a litter of kittens. One of them, a very clever girl, has attached herself to Paul and prefers to spend time with him than with her brothers and sisters. So of course, Paul can’t leave her behind.

Despite Bastille's reputation for going AWOL, the brothers didn't bring a carry box for the cat, they simply popped him on Paul's lap.
