My lovely friends Andrew and Robert have 3 cats, all siblings (2 boys, 1 girl) from the same litter.
Andrew and Robert used to live in Spain, and they re-homed them from an animal sanctuary there. They were named Adolfo, Zara and Kenzo, after their favourite designers/shops. Anyway, they decided that they wanted to return to the UK, and brought the 3 cats to Peterborough with them - they settled in very well, and loved having the run of the garden. Seemed to cope fine with the journey, and the different weather in the UK.
It wasn't long before Andrew and Robert remembered why they'd left the UK in the first place, and started to get itchy feet again. While living in Spain, they'd bought a little house close to Cape Town, as they'd loved the place when they visited. It was a holiday let, but moved in while renovating another house they'd bought to live in. Once again, the cats had a plane journey, this time to a completely different continent.
They soon got to know their surroundings, and even met the local baboons that wander around - stealing food from bins!!. A couple of years ago, Andrew and Robert went on holiday to Spain - they still had a little house there - and I came to look after the cats for 10 days!! Best cat sitting gig I've had so far!! I'm attaching a sweet photo of the three of them at their favourite time of day - feeding time! Since then, they've moved twice more, albeit in the same town.
They'll sadly be leaving South Africa next year to return to the UK - or go who knows where next - and once again the cats will be on the move. These three siblings who started out as Spanish have lived in the UK and South Africa, coping extremely well each time - shows how adaptable cats can be.
If you've got any stories about well-travelled cats, please share them with us!
