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

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.

    Singapura. I am intrigued! I’m off to do some research. If you’re looking for another passenger, can I come?

      You’d have to be a contortionist to fit in the spaces we have left!

    I’m sure you will have a funny trip. To have a pug on board is always the best! Imperi looks interesting, like a Mini-Puma :o)

      Oh, Maya has been very entertaining, especially in her infatuation with Leo 😉

      Oh, we’ve really enjoyed the combination this time – all super animals.

    That’s quite the crew you have right now…the first line “a bernese mountain dog and 5 gerbils” sounds like the opening to a joik…or maybe the punch line 🙂 Really those are some beautiful animals and it must have been fun to meet up with former passengers…what type of “volunteering” are you referring to? Just curious

    • Animalcouriers August 12, 2013 at 10:58 am - Reply

      Yes, when courier A picked up Milo and the gerbils, it couldn’t have been a more little and large situation! Mind you, the gerbils cages took up more space than Milo, if you can believe that 😉

      Think that Julie is talking about volunteering at an animal shelter in Australia.

    I never cease to be amazed at some of the passengers you put together. All sorts of shapes and sizes this time. That cat has the most amazing eyes!

    • Animalcouriers August 12, 2013 at 11:01 am - Reply

      Yes, the combination of Milo and the gerbils in my car was rather humorous!

      Milo was a love to have on board – we also love the variety! The gerbils were surprisingly good company and up to stuff a lot of the time 😉

        I bet they were! funny how much personality can fit into such little creatures 🙂

    What a beautiful crew you have!!! How blessed these owners and critters are to have you ♥

    OMG – those knitted mice are so realistic for one moment I thought the kitten had captured one of the gerbils

    They’re all gorgeous!I love the pictures of Milo.

    • Animalcouriers August 18, 2013 at 2:52 pm - Reply

      Funny, thought of you when I met Milo – quite the most charming fellow. Still a puppy really and when he dances with excitement you have to keep your feet out from underneath his 😉

    aaaaaaw Imperi is so cute! How old is she?

    • Animalcouriers September 2, 2013 at 1:42 pm - Reply

      Not 100% sure but probably around nine months. Very cute indeed!

    Yes I guess I did see Milo here before. LOL!

We'd love to hear from you
