When planning a household move or bringing home a cat from a breeder in another state, shipping your cat may be necessary. You have several options for transporting your cat: you can drive it yourself, ship your cat by air or use a cat transporter. Hiring a cat transporter to ship your cat is perfect if you cannot bring your cat with you or simply don’t have the time to arrange transportation yourself.
Your cat is an important part of your family, so you want to take the proper steps to prepare him or her for their journey. Whether you decide to ship your cat by car or by air, a travel kennel is a must. Choose the right kennel for your cat to keep them safe and comfortable.
Remember, all cat transporters must be licensed and registered with the USDA. Before you choose a cat transporter, carefully examine their credentials and references to ensure that they are properly licensed. Don’t be afraid to ask questions in order to make sure that they will be able to adequately care for your cat. Asking the right questions in the beginning will help you feel more comfortable and confident during the transport process.
