Our cat family who came with us to Denmark

In the photo showing our ferry accomodation
are all the cats who we brought to Denmark
from Finchley to Skt.Klemens on 24th March 1994.
All eight had travelled by car and ferry with us.

On the ferry from Harwich to Esbjerg we had booked a suite for us and the cats.
The purser refused to let us have it in case the next customer was allergic to cat fur!
The only space they could fit us all in was a storage space between inner and outer hull.
On the right is the outside gangway door. On the left is the inner door to the lounge.
I had to grab spare duvets and chairs from the cabin we were given so we had our own bathroom!
