ok, so it is rather easygoing. the vaccination is done very quickly and we would have to wait 21 days and to find someone who can take the cat on the air plane. Should be easily organized. They are all already microchipped. They just need that blue Euro-passport but that is also done very quickly.

First come first serve ;D :sneaky: :briggin:

I think it's the same as for Germany - rabies vaccination a certain number of weeks before travel and to be microchipped.  My stepdaughter transported her cat to Spain when they moved and then back again  when they returned.  The same applied there too, save for the microchip which wasn't a requirement.  I may have to go and investigate now.  Just in case anyone needs to know.....

Ok, the following kitten still look for a new home:
Smart, Clever, Marie, Cara and mother cat Lucy. Tino and Bernstein have been adopted yesterday.  :Luv2: They will live in a family as outdoor cats.

I just need to find out what are the import rules of cats for the UK. In Germany you need the cat to have a anti-rabies inoculation and a transponder chip. Does maybe anyone of you know what they need to cross the border?

Sunshinekath there are going to be a lot of cats wanting to come and live with you. You have one first class cat accommodation apartment. Loved all the pictures of your beautiful cats, and your amazing home space.

What means DIY?

Do It Yourself. Like you making things yourself instead of ready made.

Great work I love the box.  ;D Puts mine to shame  ;D

I made a cat tree for my two. I will post a pic when I find it. ;D
Found two ;D
That's my two 9 month old mogs Astrophe and Zoonie. They would love your flat

You have inspired me to make more for my cats. Now where did I put that saw  ;D

Oh dear. Those pics of Smart brought a tear to my eye for sure. 

So reminds me of my gorgeous Millie Monster (sadly RIP). Long, lean, silky and black with just a hint of a Siamese face.  Be still my beating heart  :catluv: :catluv: :catluv:

So special to have such trusting bond with a cat.  Can't imagine being able to let go if Smart were here.  Best of luck finding homes for your foster furbs  :hug: :hug:

Cara is a really special one. She is not a typical cuddling cat but very peculiar. The 6 kittens were very reclusive when I picked them up. She was one of those who were very reserved and she still is. It takes a long time to get her trust.

You are slave to the most beautiful cats

I know  :Luv2:

that is the reason why my fosters "normally" do not have a chance, except Melina of course! She was a big exception.....however...from the 6 kittens that are my current fosters Smart is the one who is very needy and tries to twist me around my finger.
