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 journey – but it must be intimidating for them, poor wee things. I try and make it as pleasant a journey as possible for them – and a forever home at the other end is well worth it!
From RAWR, Cork CAT, KLAWS Kerry, West Cork and Dublin, looking for their forever homes across the water, these brave wee things were a joy to travel with – and six of them found their homes the day they got there – at New Start’s homing day, arranged specifically for their arrival. Petite went off to her new home a few days later. But there’s still eight Irish felines looking for their forever homes as I type. Do pop along to New Start’s next homing day if you can find a place in your heart and home for one of them – they’ll be ever so grateful and make it well worth your while!
Twas a terrific, non-stressful journey for me, as usual – lunch with Ann from Cork CAT, dinner with Helen from Dublin – and nearly a whole day spent with the fantabulous folks from New Start. I love their homing days – meeting the new guardians of my tiny charges and hanging out with some of the coolest rescue folks I know. And the whisky on arrival at 4am – mustn’t forget that 😉
