A French reunion for Scrumpy, Sirius and Throttle

A French reunion for Scrumpy, Sirius and Throttle

This feline trio reached their new South of France home yesterday, where they were warmly greeted by their owners, John and Janet.

A special room has been set up for the cats to start their acclimatisation to their new environment. Next, they’ll have the run of the house, and finally, once they’re fully settled in, the great outdoors will be theirs to explore.

And what a lovely outdoors it is. The family has moved to a beautiful valley near Marseille where John and Janet plan to turn a lifelong hobby into a business — running gites alongside an astronomy centre. They chose this spot as the skies tend to be very clear, while the valley sides block out light pollution from nearby towns.

Animalcouriers are now on our way to Spain, where our first stop will be to reunite Baby with her owner in Barcelona, before heading to Madrid to deliver Byron and Pluto, and then continuing further south.

Big hugs on arrival for Sirius

    Oh, my PJ and Belle would make grand companions for The Red Man, and Pluto would be at home with Pretty who adores hounds of any shape and description!! As for Slow, she’d like to have them all – safe journeys, our friends! Have a fabulous weekend across the Pond!!

    The ears on Pluto— two thoughts. When my Basset Hound Socrates was a pup, he was always stepping n his ears and falling on his chin, poor guy. Second, his ear would often have the wet look that Pluto is sporting. 🙂 –Curt
