Advice on traveling with your pet: ASPCA, AVMA, HSUS, USDA
Check out www.pettravel.com and www.ipata.org for lots of good advice about transporting pets (especially internationally).
Note: The Cat House on the Kings does not endorse any specific transport. We urge you to do your own research before engaging a pet transporter, including asking for references to satisfied customers who you can contact independently.
Here are some transporters of whom we are aware:
Caution: Please be very careful if you engage an individual who is not well known to you. Do not pay in full in advance of the delivery of the animal. Be sure to obtain proper identification like a photocopy of a valid driver's license to enable the individual to be found if there is a problem. We are aware of situations in which the "transporter" picked up the animal and the fee, but the animal did not arrive at the destination.
Check out our favorite litter scoop! Its clever design will save you minutes of scooping every day and when you have hundreds of cats like we do, that adds up very quickly. The video below shows what a difference it can make. Click on either graphic for more information.
