Hi Justin,   Thank you again so much for everything that you have done for us. Mina and Scarecrow have arrived safely and have settled in well already. Finally, our apartment feels like home 🙂 We wish to convey as much as we can how much your understanding and patience has meant to us. Without your professionalism and care we would not have been able to have been able to get them here and the hole in our hearts would have been too great to give living overseas a crack. You helped us get here and we will never forget what you have done for us.   We hope that you have had an excellent start to the year and wish you every success with whatever your future holds.

Brisbane to Paris-charles De Gaulle, France
Hi Rachael! That’s it, we are in France! The trip went really well! Lucky miss Kaya arrived more rested than we did. She was happy to see us of course, but still agreed to return to her crate, so it must have been a good experience. She is now really enjoying her French lifestyle, plenty of walks in the countryside and beaches, fresh food, and she loves going to the shop every morning to get her fresh baguette! I’ve enclosed a couple of photos of Kaya at her new home in Roscanvel. Thank you and all the Jetpets team and partners for taking such good care of her during this long journey. Kind regards Nathalie
