Animalcouriers headed south following a night in Narbonne, reuniting pets from the UK with their families, and meeting others who’re heading back with us to the UK.
In Murcia we met friendly Tirean, who’s named after a character in a book. Tirean and family are off to spend a couple of weeks in the UK. They were due to drive, but their car suddenly developed a fault. So plans were changed at the last minute — humans are travelling by air, and Tirean is travelling with us.
It was pouring with rain in La Cala de Mijas when we met up with Espie and Kris, and their cat Bozie, in a supermarket car park. They got out of their car with Bozie stuffed up Kris’s jumper, saying, Bozie doesn’t like the rain much! Heavy rain, busy car park, rush hour traffic — and Bozie was calm as anything.
We carried on along the coast, down to Estepona, where we reunited gorgeous Egyptian cat Nellie with Simone.
Walks and views
Ben, Sam, Cushy and Smudge
From Estepona in Spain we continued around the coast and crossed the border into Portugal. There was great excitement when we reunited dogs Ben and Sam, and cats Cushy and Smudge, with their owners in Lagos in the Algarve region.
