We think we are quite mad to be doing this, but now my mother has died we have made arrangements to bring her long term support system (Jamie the tuxedo cat) over to Montreal from the UK. There is an excellent specialist pet shipping company we used in 1998 who have the contract and he arrives next Wednesday. The present incumbent is probably not going to take this well but he will get used to the idea – eventually.

Couldn’t see the cat being “dumped” – he’s earned better than that.
