Hi all,

Strange request but i thought i'd ask anyway!

Is anyone driving from Madrid to London before 25/10/09? If you are, we are wondering if you could possibly take a passenger with you, a small hamster to be specific. We will be flying back and have contacted all sorts of companies to try and get our little hamster back to england, but all prices have been well out of our price range. We have already contacted customs and there are no restrictions on the movement of him across boarders.

Basically, all that will need to be done is make sure the hamster is ventilated, not in direct sunlight, has water/food and maybe the odd peanut every now and again :)

If anybody fancies this please contact me

There will a monetary reward for anybody who is up to the challenge!

Many Thanks

That sounds perfect! If you could let me know what ferry company you are travelling with then i can phone up and find out for definate. Rabbits and rodents have complete freedom of movement within the EU so customs stuff will not be a problem!

Many Huge Thanks!

I've just rung P and O and they've said that they can't take animals on that route! So, thank you very much Cazzy for offering but unfortunatley it wasn't meant to be!

If anybody else is going back to london through madrid before the 25th and not using the p&o ferry from bilbao to portsmouth could do it, we would VERY grateful!

That's a shame. I hope you find someone else.

Good Luck
