We recently made a trip to Berlin with cats on their way to rejoin their owners. Having delivered them safely, we rounded up our passengers for their journeys to the UK. We have to say, the names of all the pets on this trip were some of the best!

Edgar and Loki, 2 cats from the UK to Germany

Having started their journey in Manchester, Carolina’s delightful feline duo travelled with us to Berlin and a happy reunion.

Rascal and Mischief, 2 cats from Berlin to London

We were pleased to see Dominic’s cats Rascal and Mischief, who’ve travelled with us before. Dominic, a hair colourist, has been working in Berlin, but now has an exciting new job back in the UK. We feel sure he’ll be in great demand, given how many grey hairs the pandemic has caused!

Midna and Zelda, 2 cats from Berlin to Hertfordshire

Rafe and Helene travelled to the UK slightly ahead of their cats, who spent the intervening time at a rather wonderful cattery in Berlin, the Katzenpension Panketal.

Returning to the UK

With all our passengers safely on board, we set off for the UK. We overnighted in Wasserburg zu Gommern, where we stayed in a lovely hotel dating back to the 11th century, when it was a manor house. With a pandemic lockdown about to come into force, they offered us a deal that was too good to pass up. And as we continued on our way the next day, we were lucky enough to spot some dinosaurs and a fire truck.

Little Islay was a bit frightened of them, so we had to carry her past with our hands over her eyes!
