Yesterday couriers J and M delivered cats Nellie and Bonnie to Val and David in Spain. Their new location, El Portet de Moraira, is a very pretty place to be, and bustling with lots of people enjoying the sunshine and the beach.

Val and David were quick to get in touch to let us know how the girls are getting on:

“Nellie and Bonnie are settling in well; Nellie (and Val) had a sleepless night while she explored and then meowed when she found herself alone! Both cats are eating and drinking well, and catching up with sleep.

We would like to thank you sincerely for taking care of them and delivering them safely to us. When we started to plan the move they were our main concern, but we were confident that they would be ok with you, which enabled us to concentrate on the move itself. We wish you much success in the future, and will readily recommend you to anyone who needs an animal courier.”

Then it was on to La Herradura on the Costa del Sol, where little Yorkie Lola got an ecstatic welcome from Johanna, who has been anxiously waiting for her. Once their holidays are over, the family will head north to Madrid where Johanna will be taking over the British school.

And just a few days ago, Bart was reunited with his owners near Agen in France. This character dog would have travelled at the same time as his owners, but his passport had gone out of date. Bart was cared for by his owner’s daughter until his passport was ready, then homeboarded briefly with couriers J and R β€” and pretty much wore them out with his ball games. When the time came to place his bed in his travel cage, Bart got there first, and a tug’o’war ensued until Bart decided to drag the bed into the cage himself β€” what a cooperative passenger!

From what his ‘dad’ Joe tells us, Bart is a very special animal. He was pulled from a river at five weeks old, and Joe says he’s the best dog ever.

Joe told us:

“The grand reunion took place as planned and Bart has made himself at home. He is a delight, a gentle giant, and our other dog, Darcy, has made him very welcome.

The timing of this move could not have been better for us and he obviously travelled first class in 5-star luxury. Many thanks to you and your team. I will certainly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone we know looking for pet transport.”

The lane to the Spanish house was too narrow for our van, so David and Val had to collect the two cats from us and drive them the last few yards

Double trouble! It was a rare treat to have two Animalcouriers vans and four of our couriers all in one place earlier in the week. We stayed the night with our blog/website design/editorial team in Narbonne, and a good time was had by all under a bright blue Mediterranean sky.
