Animalcouriers collected cats Django and Gola who’re swapping Barcelona for London. They’re snuggled up inside their beds but pop out for strokes at every opportunity, purring away.

Also from Barcelona are Golden Retriever cross Jasper and his Andalusian Podenco friend Lyssa, whose UK destination is a bit further away — the Scottish Highlands. These sweet dogs are being greatly missed by their loving owner.

Kira is also from Spain, and is on her way to live in Sussex. Quite the comedian, this pretty dog demands attention every time we stop!

In the south of France we collected handsome ginger boy Kikouyou. Originally from China, he’s now off to live in Cambridge, so we’ve been trying to teach him a few words of English. Kikouyou is travelling with his three favourite toys that feature feathers, bells and squeaks, so it’s a very musical trip!

Also from southern France comes energetic Minou, who loves to roll around in bed and have it remade on demand! Minou is moving to a new seaside home in Eastbourne.
