Hi. Have you ever thought to take in a live in carer and thus keep the animals that your parent is obviously used to and will dearly miss. It seems such a shame that people think they need to return to their homeland after so long in spain where they have made new a new life and new friends. The traumer of leaving ones home, pets and friends could be the worst alternative surely.

Should you wish to consider a live in carer, please leave your details.

Thanks for your reply.   

We as a family have explored ali the obvious solutions.  Mother is able to partake in the decision.  And has chosen this route.  We are only the facilitators.

Hello / Bonjour / Hola Pepe in Normandy,

It was very nice to read about the charitable White Knight offering to provide a free live in carer to support your elderly parents in order that they can remain in the area with their pets.....although I do sometimes questions peoples true motives! maybe I am just cynical, anyway :-

I am also an animal lover and currently have a Spanish pussy cat that I´m returning to the UK with next week and therefore understand the difficulties associated with trying find homes for your three cats and one doggy.

However if you can´t find homes, as a last resort you could contact the charity (S.C.A.N.) in El Verger next to Ondara and which is close to Orba.

S.C.A.N is close to Orba and you perhaps make a decent DONATION as I have always done for the care of abandoned cats which are often re-housed / adopted.

They are a charity and a society for the care of animals in need run by a lovely bunch of altruistic volunteers.

Good luck with your family and the mascotas / pets.

Dr Martin-Lucas.
