labrador frequent travellers with Animalcouriers

on the road with Animalcouriers

Reunions in the UK, while Pinot and Grigio head back from France

While passengers who travelled with us from Greece were reunited with their families in the UK, courier Richard set off to France to collect Pinot and Grigio, a gorgeous pair of tuxedo cats.

Jessie

As soon as we pulled up in the van, Jessie just knew that her owners Angelica and Nikos were nearby.

We reunited Jessica with her family — young Hazel was especially excited to see Jessica again.

Yoshi

Maria was ecstatic to have her handsome British Blue Yoshi back — even though it was 11pm when we got there! Yoshi knew Maria right away and made lots of loving sounds.

Maria wrote to say:

“A big thank you for transferring safely Yoshi from Greece to Kidderminster. You treated my cat with love. You are a team of high-level professionals. Thank you so much, my cat and me are very happy and content.”

Maria's broad smile says it all

Cassie

There were a few hold-ups on the trip, but Cassie took everything in her stride. She chattered away as Emma carried her indoors. Emma got in touch, saying:

“I wanted to thank you for everything. It was absolutely wonderful to be reunited with Cassie and I am so grateful for all your help and assistance. You provide an amazing service and I don’t know how you do it. I would be constantly weeping!”

Pinot and Grigio

Courier Richard travelled to France to collect Pinot and Grigio, a pair of black-and-white character cats who’re swapping the Dordogne for the UK. The route took him through beautiful forests, along winding roads, past stately chateaux, and in and out of small medieval towns with lively Sunday markets. 

Once the cats were on board, they settled down quickly and soon revealed just how much they love chin rubs and tickles.

And finally… Nova

Back in August, we drove Matilda’s gorgeous cat Nova to Berlin. Matilda was kind enough to get in touch to tell us how Nova was getting on, and to send some photos.

“Thank you for quickly and safely getting Nova to us in Germany. She’s settled in already and is being really confident, hasn’t seemed scared or confused at all like I assumed she would. She’s even kind of made friends with the other cat that lives here (making friends for her means not hissing at him, haha). 

Thanks again for your service 🙂 will definitely use you again in the future when we need an animal moving.”

Matilda says: "a picture of Nova chilling, though she seems to prefer pulling all of the shoes out from the shoe rack and sleeping in the bottom of that so far — typical)!"

    Love the architecture and old car. And the kitties and puppies, of course.

      It’s a beautiful part of the world — always fun to meet vintage cars and sometimes be able to take a photo.

    It’s like a mini holiday enroute. But I would guess there’s an element of poopin’ scoopin’ (say that with a German accent) that’s usually not part of a European holiday. ha! What a cheery group, starting with doggy smiles in your header! Super Duper x B

      It’s great to hear from owners when their pets have arrived home that everything is good after their journeys!

  6. Sarah Ferguson & Choppy September 30, 2016 at 1:33 am - Reply

    Jessie and Carlo look like the skinny versions of Choppy (she is American, though, so a little extra weight is to be expected).

      Mere youngsters – Choppy doesn’t have anything to worry about 😀

      Courier R has been spotting more treasures on the road and we’ll hopefully be able to share one or two soon!
