The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is the place to visit if you want to know the rules on taking pets abroad or between Europe and the UK.
Pet Travel rules changed on 1 January 2012
Pet travel rules changed on 1 January 2012 when the UK brought its procedures into line with the European Union.
From this date all pets can enter or re-enter the UK from any country in the world without quarantine provided they meet the rules of the scheme, which will be different depending on the country or territory the pet is coming from.
We brought 2 cats with us to Spain 7 years ago and both have settled in well and love the Spanish lifestyle.
We have since acquired many other cats, some have been re-homed, some have not survived (2 were old and had been feral for many years), but we currently stand at 8 and have said ‘DEFINATELY NO MORE!!!
Although how can you resist when they are so cute!!
OF COURSE, WE DON’T JUST HAVE PETS ……WE HAVE WILDLIFE!
BUT BENTLEY IS NOT IMPRESSED
See you next week, have a good one
