Here’s a chance to catch up on some recent Animalcouriers trips with pets travelling to and from Scotland.
Roger, Peggy and Patsy, 3 dogs from Dallas to Elgin
We headed to Scotland with three delightful and well travelled hounds on board — Mastiff Roger and Patterdale Terriers Peggy and Patsy. Their journey had started a week earlier, when they set off from Texas to Chicago for their flight to Frankfurt with Lufthansa. In Chicago, a sudden heatwave put an embargo on dogs flying, so they had a short wait in kennels until the weather was cool enough for them to take off.
Courier Shane met the dogs at Frankfurt airport and whisked them via Calais to the UK. After a couple more days on the road with us, they had a happy reunion with their family near Elgin.
Pasha, Tom and Suzy, 3 cats from Paisley to Girona
Fiona and Christian used to live in Girona, where they run a translation agency. They relocated to Paisley but soon found themselves lured back to Spain. Their teams are all based there, and they missed the Spanish way of life. We had the pleasure of transporting their splendid cats from Paisley back to northern Spain.
Andy and Riley, 2 pets from Scotland to France
Cat Andy and his canine chum Riley are another pair of pets who’ve travelled extensively. Having lived originally in New Zealand, they moved to Australia, and then to Scotland. We met them at the nature reserve in Montrose for their relocation to Nice in the south of France.
Tiger, a cat from Norway to Aberdeenshire
Lois contacted us, desperate to find a way to get her gorgeous cat Tiger from the Norwegian city of Stavanger to Scotland. Courier Paul met Lois and Tiger at the border between Norway and Sweden, then drove Tiger all the way to her new home in Aberdeenshire.
Lois wrote us a lovely note saying:
“I would like to thank the team and especially Paul, who took our cat Tiger all the way from the Norwegian/Swedish border over land and sea and all the way home to our house in Banchory, Aberdeenshire. She arrived safe and sound and has quickly settled again at home, after her 5 years living in Norway! I was initially very sceptical about a nervous cat tolerating such a long journey, but it is clear she was well looked after en route. Paul did an amazing job of travelling over so many miles, crossing so many national borders, using ferries and roads, when borders and paperwork are even stricter than normal — he handled it all so calmly.”
Archie and Marley, 2 cats from Spain to Scotland
After a happy time living in Ronda, Spain, Kristen had a hankering to return to her roots in Aberdeenshire, and raise her family there. We were pleased to help with the relocation of the feline family members.
Toby, a cat from London to Lossiemouth
Kate and her family have relocated from London to Lossiemouth in search of a quieter life with plenty of fresh air. The family cat, Toby, made the journey with Animalcouriers.

We spend a night in the picturesque village of Edzell, at the foot of the Angus Glens, where we stayed at the Glenesk Hotel.
