Embarking on a plane journey with your feline? Here's how to ensure a smooth experience.
While flying is generally safe, it's essential to be aware of health implications and stress factors.
Ensure all documentation is ready, consult your vet, and make your cat familiar with the carrier.
Avoid sedatives during flights. Consult your vet for safe alternatives.
Costs can range depending on the airline and destination. Typically between $95 to $200.
Pack their favorite toys, treats, and a comforting piece of your clothing.
