When Rowena decided to relocate from London to Lincoln, she asked us to take care of moving her cats. We arranged to collect them just before the removers came by, and deliver them to their new home once Rowena got there.
Rowena has 16 cats, all of which are rescues that she couldn’t resist helping. She’s moving to a big house in Lincoln with a large garden, where the cats will be very happy indeed. We managed to catch 13 of the 15 she wanted us to take. One of the missing is feral: he played his own version of cat and mouse with courier M and couldn’t be caught. Another feral was finally bundled up in a blanket for his journey.
Everyone else was exceptionally well behaved — a very calm and friendly group, which is testament to how well Rowena cares for them all.
In a bit of a huff, perhaps?

Arrival in Lincoln the next day — Rowena was delighted to see her ‘babies’ and declared she hadn’t slept a wink without them!
Wisely, Rowena initially allocated a room to the cats as their base, and said she would let them out into the house to explore, but not yet out of the house
Ready for nosh
Time for a post-prandial wash
