on the road with Animalcouriers

To France with Coco, Lila and Katouss; and back to the UK with Rocco and Kip

Animalcouriers left the UK with a trio of delightful pets on board: Cockerpoo Coco, and feline sisters Lila and Katouss. On our return journey, we travelled with Weimaraner Rocco and Kip the tortoise.

Coco

Darling Coco is relocating with her rugby-playing family to Aix en Provence. We collected her in Leicester, and she shared a bedroom with courier S on an overnight stop in Saint Quentin.

What a winsome look! Coco's had a lovely haircut specially for the south of France climate.

Lila and Katouss

We collected gorgeous Lila and Katouss in Twickenham, at the start of their journey to the sunny climes of Avignon. Their owners went on ahead to get everything ready for the cats’ arrival.

Both girls are stunning to look at…

The holiday traffic meant quite long tailbacks, but the compensation was views like this

Booking.com came up trumps with a great deal on a room in a converted convent in the beautiful town of St Maximin La Sainte Baume. A jazz festival was in full swing, and the music echoed prettily around the courtyard.

Rocco

Frequent Animalcouriers passenger Rocco, a stunning Weimaraner, has been on holiday in Grimaud. Now it’s time for him to leave the sea views behind and go home to London.

Holiday traffic was still heavy, which made it a slowish day. Will courier S or the swan reach the bridge first?

Maybe this would be a faster way to travel?

Kip

In Paris we collected handsome Hermann’s tortoise Kip, whose owner believes him to be around seven years old. Kip and his owner are moving to Leeds. Kip will be cared for by family members in Surrey until his owner completes her move.

Kip is a very quiet and well behaved passenger!

      Kit was a model passenger — we too thought the globe an ideal travelling accompaniment!

    Love the diversity of the photos and how they capture these darling animals’ expressions.

      Courier S had a bit of time on her hands while waiting in traffic and put it to good use with those photos.

    I’ve actually been to Avignon, many years ago.

    What sweet doggies and cats! And little Kip! I bet he is a quiet passenger. 🙂

      Isn’t Avignon a wonderful place! Kip is high up there on the quietest passenger list 😀

We'd love to hear from you
