*** FANFARE *** Announcing the arrival of four snorgalicious felines from KLAWS, come to us to prepare themselves for the daunting journey through the south of Ireland and across the ocean to New Start in Newent, UK.

Toffee Transport

Toffee’s a wee 6-month-old-ish poopy. He’s gorgeous inside and out. His people let him stray on the road and, unsurprisingly, he came back broken. Lucky to be alive he’d two broken legs – one a complicated fracture requiring special surgery. His people decided not to be his people any more and Jennifer took over. One […]

Summer 2013

A combination of illness among my permanent residents, followed by illness in my technologies, has meant that I’ve posted very little over the past three months.

New Arrivals At New Start

Another terrific trip to the UK done and dusted. Fifteen felines packed their bags and girded their loins for the nerve wracking journey to New Start in Newent, Glos, UK. Don’t get me wrong! Their transport accommodation is as comfortable as possible, and they’re fed, watered, cleaned out and snorgled at various stages in the […]

More Scrumptious Irish Emigrees

29 felines packed their lil bags and emigrated to the UK this weekend. 6 from Animal Advocacy, 11 from Cork CAT, 9 from SNIP and 3 from RAWR. Tis the most I’ve ever transported – we added a seventh hospital cage to the passenger seat area – and everyone was humanely and comfortably transported as […]

Advance Preview Emigrees Oct 11

The Dunmanway Mountain kittens and Spock are packin their tiny bags to emigrate to the UK this weekend. Nobody has visited to see these gorgeous kittens – if they had I’d have no-one emigrating, because these guys are the most snorgalicious bunch ever, and would be homed in a flash. We’ve a full van this […]
