Two Maine Coon cats swap Los Angeles for Orkney

We helped two Maine Coon cats swap Los Angeles for Orkney. Owner Lis started to organise their move from Sacramento to Scotland last June. But the pandemic made it a stop-start process. The cats, Ike and Little Red, were booked to travel more than once, and each time their flights were cancelled. Lis made her move from the US to Orkney in November. In early January, we started working with her in another attempt to organise her cats' journey. Finally, after two postponements, Ike and Little Red touched down at London Heathrow in March. Animalcouriers collected them at the airport [...]
