Tulips from Amsterdam

Our animal freighters, in their infinite wisdom, have informed us that the direct flight to LA (approx 16 hours) is too long for animals to do in one go. So, they recommend that they travel via Amsterdam, spend eight hours there where they can get out of their travel boxes, wander round in an enclosure for a while and have a drink (but no food), and then get reloaded back into their boxes and onto another plane to LA.

This is all well and good but it means two take offs and landings instead of one which is stressful enough, but also two lots of being bundled into travel boxes and loaded onto an aircraft, which Louis, Roxy, Daisy and Jeffrey in particular are going to absolutely hate. And when they are that terrified they will be very aggressive for sure. Got to trust that the peeps at Schiphol know what they are doing but it's all starting to get rather daunting...
