Farewell to Martin Simeons

We wish him lots of luck & love in his new home. Many thanks Martin for your support & fabulous hard work over the years volunteering with Bev at the cat neutering sessions we could not have coped without you! He kindly took two of our rescue girls with his own Moggs to the UK Olive & Angelina. If anyone is flying to Heathrow in December please let us know if we can add two kittens Hela & Freya to your flight!

Pet travel to UK

Nothing will change for your pet before the end of the transition period on 31 December, but what happens afterwards depends on what is negotiated in the next 11 months. At present, dogs, cats and ferrets can travel freely across the EU on an EU pet passport, under the EU pet travel scheme.

Junker seeks pet passport deal

The European commission president, the proud owner of a pooch called Plato, has taken a personal interest in the fate of the pet passport scheme, under which animals in good health can be exempted from going into quarantine as they travel around Europe.

With a no-deal scenario looking increasingly likely, Mina Andreeva, a commission spokeswoman, disclosed that advice to pet owners would be published in the coming months, after Juncker highlighted the urgency of the matter “several times”.

Plato, who was rescued from a Greek island by a German organisation, lives with Juncker in his home country of Luxembourg, where, the commission president has joked, Plato ignores commands because he has yet to master French.
