Last night Animalcouriers reached Lugo in Galicia, in the north west of Spain. This morning we dropped off the intrepid feline duo Lewis and Clarke at a cattery near El Camino de Santiago (the pilgrims’ route), before crossing into Portugal to collect the lovely Nikita from the Braga area.

Nikita is travelling with us to the UK where she’ll be reunited with her owner, Filipa, who’s now living in Guildford.Β Filipa is very glad to have found a way for Nikita to join her, as she’s really missing her. It’s easy to understand why β€” Nikita is gentle and friendly as well as beautiful.

Nikita met us with her 'grandad', Filipa's dad, who's been taking care of her

Try as he might, courier M can't take a bad photo of Golden Retriever Olie. Here he is standing in front of a picturesque stone cottage.
