Animalcouriers is heading from the UK to Greece via France and Italy, delivering pets to their new mainland European homes along the way. We helped 12 cats relocate to three new French homes.
Baby, Bollinger, Otto, Katie and Blaze
This feline quintet has moved, with owners Deborah and Keith, from Essex to Savigny le Vieux, in Normandy.
Their new home is of considerable historical interest, being the place where Jean Louis Dior (1812-1874) started the family business in an upstairs room, initially selling chemical fertilisers, then detergents and bleaches. Jean Louis was the grandfather of grand couturier Christian Dior.
Later, the house became a school, with two large classrooms downstairs and live-in accommodation for teachers above. Today, the school, which has 22 pupils, has moved to a new location up the road.
Shadow, Tinkerbell, Fluff, Dolly, Dave and Panda
Ann and her husband have relocated from Jersey to Valeilles in the Tarn and Garonne. They made the move via Devon, where we collected their six cats from the Old Moor Boarding Cattery in Bideford.
Understandably, there was much excitement when we turned up at the door with these beloved kitties.
In Castelnau de Gers, we delivered gorgeous Princess to Lucie. Princess belongs to Lucie’s daughter Joy, who’s moving to Athens to live with her boyfriend. As there’s already a dog in residence at her boyfriend’s home, Joy felt that Princess would be happier living with her mum in France. From the welcome Princess received, we think she’s going to enjoy her new life in this very pretty part of the country.
