Black cat Mefisto is a returning client. We brought him to the UK from Zurich in 2013, and now he and owner Sabina are heading back to Switzerland.

Rhett

Fluffy ginger Persian Rhett is heading to Athens with us, where the warmer weather will be a cat’s delight.

Rhett looks a little indignant in this photo but is in fact a very affectionate puss.

Spots, Stripes and Zorro

This intrepid brotherly trio are leaving chilly UK for the sun-kissed island of Lesvos. Despite the difficult humanitarian situation on Lesvos, it’s a beautiful place, where Edith and her boys are sure to settle in quickly.
