Animalcouriers set off from the UK with three tabby cats on board, Sophia, Chiara and Georgia. They belong to Roger and his family, who have moved from a very rural location in Kent to an equally rural location near Montcuq in France.

All three cats are quite senior ladies, around 18 years young, so Roger asked us to transport them on a dedicated journey so that they wouldn’t be disturbed by any other pets.

We’re glad to report that all three took to travelling like pros and arrived in great spirits.

Displaying typical cat behaviour, instinctively wary of new events and surroundings, this tabby trio stalked around the room, orienting themselves and assessing for danger at the same time

Roger and family had gone on ahead with their dogs and were waiting to welcome the cats and help them to settle in with familiar scents and sounds. Looks like the pets have a lovely rural area to romp in.
