Muddle and Lilli swap the UK for Sweden

While couriers J and M round up UK-bound passengers in Portugal and Spain, courier S set off in a more northerly direction, heading for Sweden.

On board were cats Muddle and Lilli, collected from a cattery in Stoke on Trent, where they stayed while their owners went on ahead to prepare for their arrival.

Care instructions and character descriptions accompanied these two beauties. The top tip was that both cats love having a fuss, so courier S has been dishing out plenty of cuddles.

After crossing the Channel, they stopped at Calais for the night, then had a clear day to travel through Germany.

After a night in Lübeck, it was time to catch the early morning Puttgarten ferry to Denmark. The roads were busy as it was the start of midsummer celebrations — which involve a national holiday in Denmark and Sweden, and seem to bring out all the camper vans, classic cars and Harley Davidsons.

"Neither are we," added Lisa. "But at least we can get through it together!" Next month the family's Cockerpoo is scheduled to join them, by which time they'll have moved to the countryside, to a house with a garden.

      You’re absolutely right about the building twisting as you scroll – hadn’t noticed that before. Hope it stays still for the occupants 😉

    That apartment building is quite the thing. Hope they don’t have to wait too long for that garden in the countryside.

      It’s rather remarkable and another blogger has pointed out that is twirls when you scroll past onscreen – hope it stays still for the people living in it!

    Some view the cats have from that building. And that is a priceless and irresistible tin of peppermints!

We'd love to hear from you
