Faith came to collect handsome black-and-white duo Jules and Jim from mutual friends in Narbonne, and take them back with her to their summer residence near Perpignan. She tell us:

“Jim complained à haute voix all the way back! After a clingy 12 hours they’re both dozing on the terrace and generally behaving as if they’ve never been away.”

Helen and Stuart let us know that cats Florence and Lucca are settling in well to their new home. These lucky cats have 12 acres of Tuscany countryside to enjoy!

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the safe delivery of Florence and Lucca to us. They have clearly been exceptionally well looked after while in your care, and they are now both happily exploring their new home. We are loving having them back in our lives.”

We also delivered little Dachsie Bella to Sheila in Nice, ready for the last leg of her journey to Monaco. It was charming to see that Bella could hardly contain her excitement at seeing Sheila again.

As couriers J and M continue their journey towards Greece, courier D hopped across the channel with Frank, Heathcliff and Leon.

Frank the hamster and African pygmy hedgehog Heathcliff belong to Harriet. As she’s off to university in the autumn, her precious pets are moving to the Dordogne to live with their grandparents. They homeboarded with courier J before setting off on their trip from the UK with courier D.

Ginger tabby Leon was also on board, heading to the Cognac region. This good-looking boy is very friendly and chatty, and super excited about being reunited with Charlene.
