French viaduct

on the road with Animalcouriers

A quick trip to France and back

While couriers M and Gwen wend their way back from Portugal and Spain, couriers J and Simon made a quick trip to France and back.

Dawn’s feline family — and Fleur the Deer Hound

Dawn, along with her Deer Hound Fleur and her 13 cats, have relocated from Suffolk to the Charente region of France. Among the cats there’s a rather stunning selection of Siamese, Havanas, Burmese, Burmillas and Orientals.

We enjoyed the views and autumnal colours in Poitou-Charente

Izzy, Coco, Timothy and Misty

On the way back from reuniting Dawn with her gang in Esse, we stopped off in the Bergerac area to collect Heather and Gordon’s Chihuahua, Izzy, and their three cats Timothy, Coco and Misty. The family is moving to Norfolk.

Sweet-natured Izzy (who's smaller than all the cats!) homeboarded with us for a few days. Here she is having a cuddle with Maddie.

Izzy tried out for the job of office assistant but her shorthand was a bit rusty. She does, however, have the ears to hear everything that's going on around her!

      They are a very distinguished group — a shame we couldn’t get better photos.

    I liked the view of the viaduct even more than the pictures of your handsome passengers.

    What beautiful cats! I love to tell my husband about these families, hoping that he will better appreciate that our animal family isn’t as big as that! With 4 dogs, 2 cats, and 3 parrots, he think is we are overwhelmed. But I think 13 cats would be wonderful!

    Amber is a beauty. And I laughed at Pixie vocalizing. Except for color, Misty reminds me of the cat I included in my last blog that I found in a store window in Ashland, Oregon. Great kick-off photo at the top of the post! –Curt
