on the road with Animalcouriers

Hearty, Lola and Russo join us in Spain; Kaly, Moggy and TomTom get on board in France; and UK reunions start with Pixtura and Nina

Lovely young tortoiseshell cats Hearty and Lola hail from the Balearic Islands. They were brought by ferry to Denia and collected by our friends from Casa Antigua kennels and cattery in Jesus Pobre. Now they’re on board with Animalcouriers, on their way to the UK. They’re a playful pair, amusing themselves by leaping around their compartment and being general hooligans!

Our final stop in Spain was to collect gorgeous Maine Coon cat Russo from Cynthia. Russo regularly commutes between Hertfordshire and the beautiful seaside town of Tamariu, near Girona. He usually travels with Cynthia and Larry by car but, as Larry is unwell, Animalcouriers has the honour of chauffeuring Russo this time.

Once across the border into France, our final passengers joined us in Sigoules, a beautiful rural spot in the Bergerac area. Labrador Kaly enjoys walking, eating and chatting, while her feline companions Moggy and TomTom are making the most of their elevated position in our van. It lets them keep an eye on everything while maintaining a certain catlike aloofness.

We ordered bacon rolls for breakfast — what turned up could have fed a family of four twice over!

Nina reunited with David — daughter Sadie wrote to say: "Dad's so happy, thank you so much. Nina is now asleep cuddled up with dad, she has already settled in, it's lovely."

    Oh what HAPPY FACES……..there’s nothing as heartwarming as a reunion. Maybe a HUGE bacon sandwich is close to it though! (haha)

    Love, Sammy and Mom Pam

    I had a Maine Coon for 14 years named KitKat and he topped out at 22 lbs. Looks like Russo would have given him a run for his money! Best phat-cats ever! 🙂

      That is a very big boy! Yup, KitKat and Russo would have been quite the pair.

    Let’s see, Pixtura gets a doggy biscuit for a walk and AC gets a three-foot bacon roll. Hmmm. 🙂 –Curt

    Kaly appears to have the same attitude as Choppy – there is always another treat somewhere!
