Ginger cat Merlin

on the road with Animalcouriers

Taking two cats to Italy, and bringing dogs and cats to the UK

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

Bruce

Charming tabby-and-white fellow Bruce got on board in Milan, on his way to rejoin owner Robert in Lancashire.

Lola

Lovely Lola, a young Bracco Italiano, also travelled from Milan. Her new home is with Carol in Clackmannanshire in Scotland.

Ponschik

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…

    It always amazes me how well your animal passengers travel. Was Lola wearing pajamas so she didn’t get cold? All the animals are very cute.

      It’s rather cold at the moment and many of our passengers are coming prepared!

    we love lurchers (and their history lol) and we love Lola… she is the girl in that song by the Kinks right?

      Don’t think she’d mind if you sang that song to her, quietly though 😉
