16 Maine Coon cats and their canine chum are relocating to Crete

Emma and Warren along with their 16 Maine Coon cats and their canine chum are relocating to Crete from Hampshire.

This trip took us overland to Greece via Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. Usually we take the ferry to Greece from Italy. This time, however, we couldn't get a ferry trip on that route with a shaded open deck. We felt that for these very furry cats, some [...]
