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!

Two cats to Italy: Inseparable Mini and Romeo decided to shun the comforts of their spacious bedroom and cosy up in a cat carrier instead

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!"

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…
