Tilly is moving all the way to New Zealand

Gorgeous Tilly is off to join her owners at their new home in Christchurch, New Zealand. She'll be flying out of the UK. Until last month Tilly and her family were living in France. To meet New Zealand's entry requirement to be resident in the country of departure for six months before travel, her family thought Tilly would have to stay with family members in Devon until the end of the year. Fortunately, however, New Zealand has recently changed its policy. Special permission to enter can now be granted if the countries of residence and departure are in the same category, [...]

More passengers join our trip, and we’re now heading north through France

Yesterday we were joined on our trip by Bernese Mountain Dog Milo and a troupe of five gerbils from Provence, and a Pug called Maya and Chai the cat (we're still to get a picture of shy and retiring Chai) from Barcelona. We spent last night with friends in Narbonne where all our passengers enjoyed breezy walks through the vineyard and by the canal. Today we've collected young Imperi, a Singapura cat bred by Jackie and Stephen. This is a delicate breed of cat and quite hard to rear. Imperi is heading to her new home with Marianne in Surrey.
