Meet our latest passengers: Nina, Jed, Casey, Heidi, Bob, Mucha and Uma

Fluffy black-and-white puss Nina has joined Animalcouriers in Italy. She’s travelling with us to London to rejoin her owner who is studying there. To keep her looking and feeling her best, Nina is travelling with her own hair brush and a bag of her favourite nibbles!

Less fluffy — but marvellously mustachioed — black-and-white cat Jed has also joined our trip, travelling with his Australian Sheepdog chum Casey. Their final destination is Dublin in Ireland, where the family is relocating to be close to their Irish family. Both cat and dog are very relaxed and friendly — the perfect passengers!

We then called in to collect Maltese Shih Tzu cross Heidi and Chihuahua Bob, who’ve been in the tender care of Isabel, waiting to move to London to rejoin their owner. Isabel was rather sad to see them go but knows their owner will give them the warmest of welcomes when they’re reunited in the UK.

In Florence we collected Mucha the Whippet, whose owner is flying to the UK and will be there to greet him when he arrives. Apparently Mucha enjoys stealing food — more for the fun of it than actually wanting to eat it. His owner warned us to keep a firm hold on our sandwiches!

Lovely tabby cat Uma is a last-minute addition to our trip, and very beautiful and lively at the age of 14. Her owner, Jo, contacted us a couple of days ago when she realised she needed to get Uma back to the UK. Jo is originally from Dublin and that will be their final destination. In the meantime, Uma will be in the care of Jo’s aunt in England.

      We can’t quite believe that we have two cats with mustaches on the same trip!

    So cute! I wish I had something like this where I live for my pups so they could travel with me. 🙂

      That is a shame. We have quite a number of frequent travellers off to join their family on holiday 🙂

    Some mustache on Gentleman Jed! Beautiful photos of everyone.

      We wonder why he isn’t a celebrity cat with such a perfect moustache!

    That is quite a crew. The whippet is very impressive but he must think he is a sea gull.

    Nina is a beauty, and Jed is a handsome fella.
    You have a full load this trip and safe travels to all.

      Yes, we’re really full this trip and even a few more to come.

    Wow! What a good looking bunch… Jed has totally stolen the show for me though! That mustache would put most men to shame!!
    Hugs, Carrie and pups x

      Jed is doubly lucky, he’s got a great tache and doesn’t have to shave 😀

    Love Jed’s ‘stache. As i read this, my white cat washes his toes… still not clean enough, he sucks on his toes… Okay — they’re finally clean. LOL.

      But is he really sure, bet he went back for one final check 😉

    Jed’s mustache is awesome! I also love how happy Cooper looks for his belly rub!

    Jed and Mucha are both very striking! You have a wonderful group of travelers as usual!

    That is one truly amazing mustache!!!

      Yes, there are celebrity cats with moustaches – we’re not sure why Jed hasn’t made a bid for fame!

    What a lovely bunch of passengers and we’re falling for Jed’s moustache too, pondering who he was in a former life 🙂 Pawkisses for a safe and joyful trip 🙂

      They certainly did brighten up the bus 😀 You two at Burning Man now?

        We were off at Mt. Rainier National Park in Washington. Next week we will be on a six day kayak whale watching tour off of northern Vancouver Island, BC Canada. No Internet. And then we will be at Burning Man. No Internet. 🙂 –Curt

    That mustache is seriously impressive! Reminds me of the cartoon man on the Monopoly Board!
    Well behaved road travellers, …can they please give lessons to my kids? 🙂

We'd love to hear from you
