View Full Version : travelling with raw pet...hmmmm
09-26-2008, 01:22 PM
As if trying to figure out what we are going to eat when we travel isn't bad enough, now I need to take my cat to US by plane and am a tad :confused:
so many questions: like is it cruel to put him under that seat or is it worse in cargo?
what can i feed him on plane if he is hungry/to calm his nerves?
and i am SO confused about vaccines etc - he got irritation last time he had shots so I don't want to give them to him. the airlines say i don't need them, my vet says i do, and online customs sites just get me more confused.
pitaya is very lost and concerned she won't do what's best for him....any tips, ideas, thoughts, discussion around this and guidance by my rawfoodtalk family would be greatly appreciated!
I was just researching this for my dog (who flew from Hungary to the USA when he was a pup) and decided instead to ask my mom to dogsit for as long as even forever while I travel outside the USA.
Now, I do know that (generally speaking) under 18 pounds means they don't have to fly as cargo. That, is very much better than cargo. You don't want your precious kitty to fly as cargo.
I'm sorry that I don't know about the vaccines, don't even remember which sites I was looking at before. I do know that a health certificate would have been required for Boli at 10 days before the travel date and the temperature had to be below 80 on both sides. You're good with the temp at least now that it's nearing the end of September.
I hope that's at least some help!

I could be wrong, but years back they travelled in cargo with luggage and hot for the pet too. I have to find a pet sitter for my trip to Arlington, TX for Thanksgiving. I hate leaving my dog. She is super precious, but can't chance taking her as a cargo object either. She's a raw doggie too She is a real sweetheart. Everyone loves her and she gives men a run for their money barking up a storm till she checks them totally out. For ladies and kids she loves them with tons of kisses. She's a fabulous DOG. This is our MOLLY girl!
Oh, have pitaya join our group if she has access so we can support her during your absence. Leave written steps/directions. Don't assume anything is understood.
