“Wesley follows us around the house like a dog.”
Relocating a pet overseas can be a daunting task, especially with pets who hate travelling. Here’s a story of one such pet, an Exotic Shorthair named Wesley, who Petraveller relocated from Melbourne to Auckland.
Wesley was a gift to Steph’s husband. Steph takes a trip down memory lane as she recalls, “We got him as a kitten, and he was very timid at first. But we showered him with lots of love, and he became more relaxed. He lived with us in Auckland for eight years, and then he moved to Melbourne with us in 2019 after I was stationed here for work.”
Wesley is a gorgeous kitty. Speaking of his temperament, Steph says, “He’s super gentle and has never scratched us, even though he can be very playful. He follows us around the house like a dog. He enjoys being outdoors and is quite sociable with other cats. When he’s anxious, he likes pats, tummy rubs and reassurance from humans.”
Elaborating further, she adds, “Wesley hates going in the car and always meows loudly as he is quite distressed during transit. He was pretty unhappy with us by the time he arrived following his flight from New Zealand. I assume he will be the same on the way back.”
Steph was relocating to Auckland, New Zealand for work. She was anxious about sending Wesley again on the plane since he hated it so much the last time. Steph decided to reach out to an experienced pet transport company to help her with Wesley’s pet travel to New Zealand. While she was searching online for the right pet travel company, she came across Petraveller and decided to go with them. She says, “I read good reviews of Petraveller and reached out to the company. I got a response to my query immediately whereas I received little follow up from my enquiry with other pet travel agencies. Everyone I’ve dealt with has been excellent.”
Wesley had a fabulous journey from Melbourne to Auckland. Thank you, Steph, for believing in us and allowing us to relocate your beloved boy Wesley to his new home. We wish you a great life ahead and a wonderful time with your furry boy Wesley in New Zealand.
