Well, after my post yesterday, it’s confirmed – The missus spoke to Byford quarantine station this morning and both cats have arrived safely.
Apparently both boys are a little shell shocked, very tired and no doubt a little pissed off but they are well and no doubt enjoying the opportunity to stretch their legs.
From the info we have seen published on the web, the cat accomodation at Byford is of a pretty reasonable standard. Each pen is 1.2 m wide by 1.8 m long and 2.3 m high. They are a “modern design”, vertically oriented with an individual ‘lookout’ on the roof of the cattery.
We’ll be popping down to Byford on Friday to say hi, then we’ll be counting down the days until we can pick them up early February.
One small step for man, one giant leap for cat kind :)
