Animalcouriers is just back from a trip that involved taking two cats to Italy, and bringing dogs and cats to the UK.
Mini and Romeo
A stunning pair of silvery Maine Coons, Mini and Romeo travelled with us from south London to Florence, to rejoin their owners. They were so calm on the journey, courier Richard hardly knew he had passengers!
Inseparable Mini and Romeo decided to shun the comforts of their spacious bedroom and cosy up in a cat carrier instead
Happy reunions in Florence for adorable Mini and Romeo
Charming tabby-and-white fellow Bruce got on board in Milan, on his way to rejoin owner Robert in Lancashire.

Lovely Lola, a young Bracco Italiano, also travelled from Milan. Her new home is with Carol in Clackmannanshire in Scotland.
Lola all wrapped up for the trip
Carol sent photos of Lola in her splendid new Scottish setting…
Carol tells us Lola is still a bit timid, but settling in well
Jac Jac and Molly
The tallest and smallest on our trip — Lurcher Jac Jac and buddy Molly, a mini Dachshund — travelled with us from Como to rejoin Sara in Buckinghamshire.

After Como, our next stop was in Paris to collect gorgeous cat Ponschik, who’s relocating with his owners to London.

Lena wrote to let us know that Ponschik had arrived safely, saying: “We welcomed Ponschik to his new home on Sunday, and he already feels better and has gotten over his journey. My husband and I want to thank you for your support during the preparations and the trip itself, and for taking care of our pet. Great experience, great value!“
Gaya and Merlin
Splendid feline duo Gaya and Merlin joined us in Palaiseu, a suburb of Paris. They’re on their way to Edinburgh with owner Emilie.
Courier Richard snapped these cool cats just before departure. Here’s beautiful Gaya…
…and handsome Merlin, rocking a fabulous hipster-lookin’ beard!
Emilie sent us a photo of Merlin and Gaya in their new home, “practising their favourite hobby”, as she put it!
