Animalcouriers left the UK with a fine selection of beloved pets, who’re heading with us to various destinations in France and Spain.
Riley, Boo, Bandit and Cleo
This fabulous feline foursome are relocating with Kate and Antonin from Croydon to the Dordogne. There will be plenty of hunting and fishing opportunities for them at their new hamlet home!
We were pleased to see Maine Coon Russo again, who belongs to Cynthia. This very handsome, relaxed fellow is on his way from Hertfordshire to his holiday home in Girona, in northern Spain.
American Bulldog Tula belongs to Fiona, who adopted Tula as a rescue. Tula is another returning passenger, on her way with us to Barcelona for a holiday.
Casper is a Cavachon — a Cavalier cross Bichon Frise. This sweet dog is relocating with his owners from Haverhill to Madrid. Casper home boarded with Animalcouriers for a few days, during which he made new friends, especially with Jack Russell Bella who’s also on board.
Florence and Milly
This gentle pair of cats are relocating with owner Josie from Norwich to Benidorm. Their owner’s father has been taking great care of them while their new Spanish home was prepared.
Deegan and Cooper
A typical pair of Cocker Spaniels, Deegan and Cooper are energetic and cuddly. They’re swapping Bradford for the warmer climes of Elche, in Alicante, where their first stop is the Amberlodge Kennels and Cattery, until their owners catch up.
Super Collie cross Labrador Mia has been staying with Eleanor’s dad, Robert, in Glasgow. She travelled down from Scotland last week and is now on her way to Murcia, in Spain. It’s been a little while since Eleanor saw her, so you can imagine how the excitement is building.
Jack Russell Bella has been homeboarding with Animalcouriers, where she seemed to think housedog Bonnie was a mattress! This playful girl is travelling with us to Murcia to rejoin her owners.
Phoebe is a gentle cat but with plenty of personality. This friendly girl, who boarded with us for a few days, is relocating from Lincolnshire to Torremolinos. She and her owner have been apart for a while. His comment when we told him Phoebe was on his way was: “Yippee!”
Humphrey and Spiney
You might not think it possible, but tortoise Humphrey and iguana Spiney are a right pair of characters — and energetic, too! They’ve been staying with Animalcouriers for a few days and have been more challenging than the cats and dogs put together!
We placed them in a room of their own, well away from all other animals, and with doors and windows firmly closed. First of all, we found Humphrey climbing and then falling off his log. Health and safety kicked in, and we removed the log, leaving him with a rather boring level surface to wander around.
Then we found Spiney had got out of his box and was sitting on top of it, seeming to have a laugh. We had a few words with him, then put him back in his box and closed it. Half an hour later we checked on him, only to find him sitting on the table — we swear he was giggling! Fortunately, we managed to find another box that even this Houdini of iguanas couldn’t escape from.
