Default Oliver's getting ready for his big move

He's leaving Japan for Cape Town, South Africa on July 10. I'm trying to get him used to his travel crate by leaving him in there for longer periods every day. We're going on a short road trip next week, just so that he can get used to be in it while it's moving.











He'll travel with Lufthansa and will be in Frankfurt for an 8 hour comfort stop. He'll enjoy the cushy animal lounge while he's there: here's a Die Animal Lounge am Frankfurter Flughafen - YouTube of the lounge (it's in German though ) and this is an article about it.

Oliver looks so tiny in that first photo. What an adventure he'll be having!
Love that last photo .

Wow! I have never seen an animal lounge at an airport like that, very interesting I have always liked traveling by Lufthansa, and I like Frankfurt airport, it's very easy to get around, unlike some other airports!
The video confirms my thoughts that I could never master the art of learning German language though
I am sure Sir Oliver will be just fine in spite of the long journey. Is this a permanent move to South Africa or a summer visit?

Hi Guys

Thanks for your responses. I know Oliver looks so tiny in his cage. I feel so anxious about this journey but as someone on this forum once said, it's 24 hours out of his life and then he'll be back on solid ground and in nice, calm quarantine for a month (I've been corresponding with the guy in charge of Oliver's quarantine in SA and he's so nice, I feel very happy about relinquishing Oliver's care to him for a month).

Dee, it's a permanent move, yes. I would never put him through all this awful stress for just a few short weeks of vacation. I couldn't stand the thought of leaving him behind in Japan. I didn't even have a clue who I would have trusted to take him. Budgies are considered disposable pets like goldfish by many people here. Not all people, I do know few bird lovers who adore their budgies - but they wouldn't have taken him because they already had birds and I wouldn't have trusted anyone other than a bird lover with his care.

So off to Cape Town he goes. It's been such a stressful time. Moving is never fun, but I can't even get my own move sorted out because I've been so preoccupied with Oliver's move.

I love that pet lounge in Frankfurt. It makes me smile whenever I watch that video. My Pet Relocaters chose Lufthansa especially for the way they handle animal travellers.

I totally understand, I don't think I could leave mine behind
Cape Town sounds a lot more fun than Japan though I could never live in Tokyo, too many people, too many crowded streets. I am more of a nature person

I don't live in Tokyo. I live in Nagaoka in Niigata. Pretty rural. Lots of rice fields and way too much snow in winter for a South African girl like me to appreciate. It's quiet and beautiful in most of Niigata. I don't much like Tokyo myself but a large portion of Japan is rural

Natasha,

Good for you for helping little Oliver prepare for his long journey!

Oliver looks like he's becoming accustomed to his travel crate and I'm sure with your loving care he'll do very well.
