Animalcouriers recently drove a pair of Rhodesian Ridgebacks from Sweden to France; a pair of cats from Germany to the UK, and collected a rabbit at Schiphol airport who’d flown in from Dubai.
Guanajuato (Gia) and Olwyna (Olli)
Mother and daughter Rhodesian Ridgebacks Gia and Olli travelled with us from their winter home near Stockholm in Sweden, to their summer residence near Nice in the south of France. It’s a longish drive, but mum Gia is a little too anxious to fly, so a comfortable road trip at a pace the dogs can both enjoy is much more relaxing all round.
From Sweden we crossed to Denmark via the Oresund bridge, then took the ferry to Germany.
Our journey took us from Germany through Austria, Switzerland and Italy, and into France to deliver Gia and Olli to the Nice area.
On arrival in Nice, both dogs immediately checked that everything was as it should be.
Lucy and Katia
While in Nice courier S called in to collected fabulous felines Lucy and Katia, who’re relocating to the Scottish city of Edinburgh. This cosmopolitan pair travelled with stylish cat carriers and showed themselves to be quite the friendliest of cats.
We enjoyed a beautiful drive around the French and Italian Riviera, then crossed the Alps, passing ski resorts packed with flowers in full bloom.
Poe and Obi
We stopped off in Wiesbaden to pick up Poe and Obi. These two cats stayed at a cattery while their owners went on ahead to prepare their new home in Harrogate. They’re a little shy, but very bonded, so opted to share a cat box for part of the trip. Poe has asthma and travelled with a feline aspirator and medication, and seemed to enjoy the attentions of best buddy Obi.
Well travelled rabbit Stitch started his journey by plane in Dubai, and flew to Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. Linda from VCL Logistics collected him at the airport and looked after him while he rested after the flight. After several sleeps and meals, this furry bundle was ready to continue his journey with Animalcouriers, who drove him from the Netherlands to York in the UK.
