Yesterday Animalcouriers delivered the feline foursome from Liège in Belgium to their new home in Balerno, Scotland. Brutus, Jinx, Smokey and Figeac were delighted to be reunited with their owners and it was cuddles all round.

Then it was on to Kinross to deliver lovely Lola to her new Scottish home, where canine and human friends and family gave her a rapturous welcome.

This morning we reached Northern Ireland by ferry and enjoyed a stunning drive across moorland and fabulous green green farmland, on the way to deliver Tau to his holiday home near Londonderry. To blow off some steam before settling down to a cup of tea with grandma, courier S took Tau for a runaround in the open fields. He’s going to have a lovely time here!

Meanwhile, back in England, Romy was very excited to be back with her owners, Christiana and her partner. Romy had spent the day with courier M, enjoying a good long walk in the Sussex countryside, and relishing all the new sights and smells. Special thanks to Christiana's taxi driver Paul for taking the photo when courier M found his Blackberry battery was flat!
