Here we are catching you up on recent pet transport news, with tales from Sardinia, Spain, Italy, Greece, and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Millie and Tia, 2 dogs from Sardinia to Nottinghamshire

These super girls belong to Laura’s aunt, who had to return to the UK from Sardinia for health reasons. Laura asked us to collect Millie and Tia from Patricia, who’s been caring for them, and bring them back to the UK.

Courier Paul picked them up and took the ferry from Sardinia to Barcelona, then continued the journey by road to the UK.

Franky, Sid and Pip, three pets from Spain to Kent

Dogs Franky and Sid, and Pip the budgerigar, travelled with us from Alicante to Deal for a reunion with their family. Janet was quick to write and say:

“Just wanted to thank you all, Franky, Sid and Pip have arrived safely, they seem very well and were so pleased to see us. Paul, their courier, was so helpful and happy to give updates on the journey, he has been fantastic. The way you arrange things and the service you provide is excellent and we will recommend you to others, no hesitation.”

This charming tabby trio belong to Helena. Somewhat nervous at first, they soon perked up and started showing their faces — especially at tea time!

What cheeky looks!

And finally — Garfield, a cat from Northern Cyprus to the UK

We met Garfield, a ginger-and-white cat, at London Heathrow, as she flew in from Ercan International airport in Northern Cyprus. She belongs to Gladys, whose husband was taken ill when they lived in Northern Cyprus. The couple had to return to the UK — leaving Garfield in he care of a kind  neighbour, while they waited for Garfield’s export health requirements to be finalised. Then came the pandemic, and now it’s nearly two years since Gladys has seen Garfield.
