Heading to Germany and Scandinavia with Margot, Onyxia, Loki, Sooty, Kiwi, Sanji and Garfield; and back to the UK with Ralph and Guinness

While couriers J and M were wending their way through France towards the UK, courier Mike set off from Blighty with pets heading to more northerly parts of Europe.

Kayla has moved from Brighton to Berlin and was delighted to find there was a way for her pet rabbit Margot to travel out to join her.

Tanja and her family have relocated from Cork in Ireland to Tommerup in Denmark. Their four cats, Onyxia, Loki, Sooty and Kiwi travelled with Animalcouriers to their new Danish home.

Young Bengal kitten Sanji left his breeder Dane in the UK to live with new owner Oskar in Sweden. Sweden has quite strict rules about importing pets from other EU countries. So Dane arranged a TRACES certificate for Sanji, while Oskar organised an import permit at the Swedish end. Very vocal little Sanji was accompanied by a mountain of paperwork when he arrived at his new home near Stockholm.

And last but not least, big ginger boy Garfield travelled with us from Berkshire to be reunited with Hanna who’s moved back to Sweden.

Courier Mike booked into a hotel near the beach at Putgarten in Germany. Walking in, he was puzzled to find it looked more like a house than a hotel. Eventually he realised he wasn’t in the hotel at all, but in the retirement home next door!

Springer Spaniel Ralph and his feline friend Guinness joined courier Mike in Copenhagen. Lyndsey and family are moving from Denmark to Aberdeen, and both they and their pets started their journeys today.

When courier Mike checked in for his ferry crossing, the check-in desk had run out of official labels for vehicles carrying pets. So an enterprising (and artistic) member of the check-in team drew one by hand!

        Well lucky you did considering he is a Savannah πŸ™‚

          Savannah is it a new breed or just new to me? Either way, Gorgeous!

            Oops! Sorry Oskar. One thing we do know for sure, Sanji is a very chatty chap πŸ˜€

    Bengals are so cool! Oskar will love Sanji. I love seeing all the happy faces of people with their animals. The last photo of Ralph on the beach is wonderful.

      Ahh, turns out we were sloppy in our description of Sanji – he’s even more special being a Savannah. Just as loud as a Bengal we found πŸ˜‰ Ralph was seriously pleased with his beach stop.

        Savannah’s are rally special!

      It has been pointed out that we were wrong about Sanji – he is even more special being a Savannah!

    Sanji needs to come to my house. Can I arrange that?

    Margot is so beautiful, she doesn’t even look real.

      I am not quite sure what you mean.
