Auction ended, cheers.
£100 each on these pairs
Just £5k more to go for you - good luck Kev
You won't be able to fly them cheaper than you can get them there by road. You can fly small animals relatively cheaply if you have a 'flight sponsor' for them. i.e. someone flying on that flight anyway, they check the animal in and back out at the other end. I dropped off a couple of cats going Portugal > Germany recently on that basis. They both traveled in the one box but you wouldn't be able to do 5 like that. So you'd need to find probably 3 separate groups of people going Ireland > Portugal and willing to take the cats.
Now here is the big problem - Ryanair and Easyjet don't take cats, at all. Most people are going to use these cheap airlines to get to Portugal so you're screwed basically. A businessman going 1st class on BA isn't going to take some random persons cat. Its a whole different ball game when the animals are going to germany or holland from here, as the main airlines there will happily take them.
So if you wanted to fly them but don't fly yourself, you're left with one realistic option. Use the specific pet air transport companies. I did this to send my dog on holiday... it cost me a couple of thousand £. Even at a bulk discount for 5 the price is going to be ruinous
Unless that £3500 quote includes loads of luggage or furniture or something it sounds pretty expensive. I'm organising one dog to go Portugal > UK just now and its costing me 320 euros I think, on the pet bus. Thats to mainland UK though, if it was Ireland it'd obviously be more. I'm unsure if they charge per pet or per box, perhaps a bit of both. So maybe around 800 euros for 5 cats in 2 boxes? Even if you figure 500 euros just to get them from Ireland to mainland UK its still leaving you £2700 or so to get yourself from Ireland to Portugal, which would be extremely easy to do.
I can get you some contact numbers for the pet transport people if you like.

Just to confirm, the auction will only end Sep 8th? doesn't matter if you get the £5.5k before then?
Yes, the auction ends on Sep 8th (unless there's extensions or taken at BIN) even if the target amount is reached before that point. It'll run until there are no further bids for a 10 minute period at or after the end time.
Thanks, first post updated with latest bids.
I had set all the domains in the list on Sedo to not for sale, I've just changed them back to for sale, and set a high minimum price on them to stop anyone being able to make offers there, thought I'd make stats viewable again in case anyone wants to see visitor numbers for any of the domains.
For ease of looking, list on Sedo here can be set to traffic:
NUMBERONE.CO.UK £100 bid
