Couriers J and M set off from the UK to Switzerland with Katie’s beloved cats. Travelling back through France, they collected cats and a dog heading to the UK.

Geoffrey and Lola, cats from UK to Switzerland

Katie has relocated from London to Switzerland to work for the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). She’s excited about her new role supporting volunteers and groups who do great work for wildlife. Naturally, she couldn’tย make the move without her own ‘wildlife’ โ€” her beloved cats Geoffrey and Lola.

Rattie, a dog from France to England

Dear little Rattie belongs to Roger, a toxicologist, whose life just got very busy thanks to coronavirus. We collected Rattie from him in the hills behind Nice for her journey to Oxfordshire, where Janet is waiting at home for her.

Lingling, a cat from Carcassonne to Cambridge

Lingling is a rather gorgeous Ragdoll cat. She belongs to Valerie, who lives near Cambridge. Valerie’s granddaughter Chantelle has been taking care of Lingling until she could travel to rejoin Valerie.

We met Chantelle and Lingling in the picturesque town of Carcassonne

Dolly and Maisie, cats from the Dordogne to Kent

Loree, a vet, has a home with James in the Dordogne region of France, where she’s very active in a cat rescue organisation. Two 20-week-old rescue kittens, Dolly and Maisie, are moving to James and Loree’s home in Kent.

...as does this charming black-and-white puss, who belonged to the previous owners of the house. When they left, they rehomed him to a neighbour, but one day Loree came home to find he'd moved back in. So she let him stay!

At the Logis Europaย in Maussac, we enjoyed a superb and well priced meal. The French owners greeted us warmly and commiserated with us about Brexit. They love dogs (they have French bulldogs) so gave Rattie a warm welcome too.
