Couriers M and Gwen make their way back from Portugal and Spain with a fine crew of cats and dogs on board. As we drove through France, several more cats joined our UK-bound trip in France.
Sammy, Tommy and Charly
This fine feline trio got on board in Albuferia, on the Portuguese Algarve. They’re on their way to be reunited with Evelyn in Surrey.
Ginny met us on the Algarve to deliver Rhodesian Ridgeback Raeka. She’s a frequent traveller between Portugal and Hertfordshire, so perhaps she’ll be able to give us some tips if the satnav lets us down!
Cute Chihuahua Buddy was a late addition to our trip. He joined us near Loule and is travelling to Bournemouth to rejoin owner Maria.
Sweet-natured Nanuk is travelling with us from Portugal to rejoin owners Andrew and Alison in the UK.
Darling Eddie belongs to Cintia, who’s relocated from Aveiro in Portugal to Kent. Cintia’s mum and sister have been taking care of Eddie until he was ready to make his own journey to join her in the UK.
Super hound Teddy belongs to Luis, who’s relocating from Lisbon to London to join his partner, Diana.
Lovely Pastora, known to her friends as June, joined us in Seville, where Maria has been taking super care of her. She’s travelling with us to rejoin Natalia in London.
Tyson and Lacey
Fabulous Shih Tzu cross duo Tyson and Lacey belong to Elisa and Jose. They joined us in Palencia, Spain, en route for a reunion with Elisa in Hampshire.
On our way through France we stopped off in the charming town of Saint Pantaléon to collect pretty strawberry tabby cat Winnie from Florence. Florence has been taking care of Winnie since finding her as a young stray. Now Peter has adopted Winnie, who’s on her way to live with him in Milton Keynes.
Splendid tabby Tinker got on board in Mézières sur Issoire, where Nigel and Sally have been looking after her. She’s on her way to rejoin Sally’s mum Janet, who has relocated to the Nottingham area.
Jules, a former passenger of ours, was a last-minute addition to the trip. When his owner Frazer had to return to the UK, he found that Jules’s rabies vaccination had lapsed. So Jules had to have a new vaccination and wait 21 days before travelling to the UK.
He stayed temporarily at the Pension Moustaches in Chémeré le Roi, which is where we collected him. We dropped him off at another cattery near Calais, to make it easy to scoop him up in early November for a reunion with Frazer.
