Teddy and Bonnie are a pair of chatterboxes

Green parakeet Teddy is incredibly sociable. He talks, sings, rings his bell and generally keeps us all entertained. He's even learnt to mimic the satnav speed camera sound and repeatedly gives us warnings. For such a confident bird Teddy is surprisingly camera shy, but we hope to get some pictures of his antics during the course of the journey. Bonnie is not quite as sociable as Teddy and will in fact give you a sharp bite if you get too close. She doesn't make her own chatter or songs but follows Teddy's lead and copies all of his sounds.

Their diet is a little bit different [...]

Oliver, Grisou and Mikki are well settled in to their new home

Last November Animalcouriers brought Oliver and his feline companions Grisou and Mikki from Antibes in France to the UK. Their owner Jacqui tells us they've all settled in brilliantly "I can't praise Animalcouriers enough!
