Moving house with a pet and Petplan

So what can I tell you about moving house with a pet? Probably not a lot which is all that insightful... however, I can tell you about horse insurance from Petplan Equine and mention their My Dream Horse campaign which we were invited to blog about

This is Sasha's original drawing of her Dream Horse; there *may* have been some My Little Pony influence... scroll down to see how the picture became a reality.

Petplan offers the very best equine insurance policies and great customer service, which helps owners get their beloved horses back to health following illness or injury. They offer genuine ‘lifetime’ policies and also have a 12-month policy designed to suit all needs. Petplan works with more animal rehoming charities than any other pet insurance provider and are committed to supporting charities and the vital work they do. They also formed the Petplan Charitable Trust, which has so far raised more than £7 million towards a better, healthier world for animals. 

Don't jump to conclusions with this talk of insurance; there's nothing specifically wrong with our little kitty just yet, apart from the general stress of moving and building works, but it's always good to plan ahead.

On move day itself we shut our cat in a bathroom at our rental house, with all the necessary food and litter tray items, and we taped across the door and on the handle so no-one would be tempted to enter the room. She had to stay there until mid-afternoon, when I was ready to leave for the new house. I took her with me then in my car, in her cat carrier, making sure it was firmly closed - I do know of someone else whose cats managed to escape their cage in the car on moving house day, and cat loose in the car was an added stress I definitely wanted to be without...

She was then placed in a bathroom here until everything had been brought from the removals lorry into the new house, and we waited for quiet at tea time before letting her out to explore. There may have been a couple of holes we had to plug first (did I mention, it's still a building site?!).

I promise I'll fill you in on our move last Friday and new house sometime soon, but there is just so much still going on daily in our building site that I haven't time right now. Not only that, but I had our youngest off school sick on moving day, and both her and my eldest off sick Monday and Tuesday this week - and eldest still off sick today! It's been a bit of a 'journey' to be honest. Thank Goodness for my amazing parents and brother who have gone above and beyond and travelled from afar to come and help out at much needed times.

Today Sasha and I visited Kidzania with the rest of her school year... and that's a whole other post right there. I certainly do have a lot of updating to do in the coming months, if you can bear with me until I've unpacked a bit more!

In the meantime, I just wanted to quickly show you the amazing pet toy which arrived just before we moved last week - exactly as per Sasha's design. She didn't feel it was quite the right shade of magenta (she had possibly forgotten her drawing at this point) but it's very quirky and cute, she loves it and it has been named 'Sasha Magic' or SM for short. 

This post has been possible thanks to Petplan Equine, who sent us the toy. but all thoughts and photos are our own!
