Six cats relocate from North Cyprus, and two German Shepherds head to Scotland

Six cats relocate from North Cyprus, and two German Shepherds head to Scotland

Aslan, Boo, Pepper, Scat, Mia and Kara flew in from North Cyprus to London Heathrow. This family of six cats are now on their way to Durham, in the north of England, with Animalcouriers. They’ll stay at a cattery for a few days until their owners arrive to collect them.

Also on board is Omar, a handsome German Shepherd Dog from South Lanarkshire. Trained as a personal protection dog for his owner and her family. Following a refresher course withΒ K9 Protector near Bath, this beautifully behaved boy is now on his way home to Scotland.

German Shepherd puppy Dolly is also travelling with us to Scotland. This delightful five-month-old is on her way from Surrey to her new home in Fife. She’s finding the whole journey business a bit puzzling, but a romp and a cuddle soon put her mind at rest.

Here's Dolly enjoying playtime in courier M's garden and getting used to a lead for the first time. She'll doubtless have courier M trained in no time!

    Those poor cats! Cyprus to County Durham? They’ll be needing fur coats for their fur coats, I think. I wonder if our local bunch (I live in Durham) will understand their accent? Greek meow versus Geordie meow doesn’t bear thinking about.

      Ha ha – yes, they probably do think they got the booby prize πŸ˜‰

    All the kitties seem to be saying – “Where the heck am I going?”
    Love the shepherd look.

    Aslan is a great name for a ginger tabby! Yes, animals have a way of training their humans!

      Especially with such a big, beautiful head. Courier M gets lots of lessons πŸ˜‰

    Smug, with a bit of Garfield thrown in, that is how I would describe Aslan. OK, he has a little of Narnia in him as well. πŸ™‚ –Curt

    Oh that is a pride of cats for sure

      A rather disgruntled pride but we suspect they’ll be well settled now.

    I suspect Dolly may be in competition for longest tongue, though she’s keeping it hidden here. She looks like a lady who can’t hold her licker.

    Wow, what a good looking crew!
