Hello,

I lived in the U.S for about 10 years now and finally decided to move back to India for good. I'm looking for someone to suggest/help me with information with relocating my pet Cat. She is 11 years old and very tiny. She'll be travelling in the cabin with me. I just need information on whet vaccinations and paperwork I need when I land in Bangalore.

Thank you in advance

This firm handle the pet transport, which is not what you want, but they have some info about requirements too:

Some firms may make it out to be more complicated than it really is just to get your business.

This seems like a general information site:

You need to get information from three different parties:

1) the requirements of the country you are leaving so that the cat is allowed to leave
2) the requirements of the airline
3) the requirements of the country you are travelling to

Very selfish of you, letting your cat in the cabin. Flying is bad enough, without pesky pets everywhere.

I know that this view is unpopular but that is my opinion.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

JohnLord,
Just lately the US airlines have been changing all the rules about animals on flights, limiting types, numbers, etc. (so don't bring your turkey). It also depends on the personality of the animal, partly. I took a small cat from LA to Alaska. She fit in her soft carrier under the seat during takeoffs and landings. The rest of the time she was on my shoulders and a great hit with my neighbors and the cabin crew. In the departure lounge the captain walked by and said "nice politically correct fur piece!" My larger cat had to travel as cargo and was traumatized by the experience - especially when going through security, as he had to be removed from his crate for its inspection, and my big ferocious tom turned into a limp puddle of fear in that unfamiliar environment. They both were fine once we got settled. I met a USAnian woman in 'Nagar who had a home in NYC and another home in India (married to an OCI). She told me she brings two dogs back and forth between India and the US every six months and they are accustomed to the trip - but they ride in cargo, and she drugs them.

My problem is, I am sacred of animals, I know it is silly, but its not something I can overcome. So I know I would not like a cat sat next to me outside of its holder.

My fear is irrational but there is nothing I can do about it.

Relocating to India from U.S pet relocation

Can't argue with your phobia, but it is an individual issue, and one can't deny other people on that basis. Cabin crew might be sensitive and adjust seating. You'd probably get more sympathy than those who might like to see the babies sedated and put in boxes in the hold!

And I've never even seen an animal on a plane, so the chances of being sat next to one seem rather low.

Have wondered that myself. I don't think that a cat or a dog can keep its bladder and bowels inactive for so many hours. Perhaps the people who have done it could tell us how they handle this?

Cat experience is all I have to offer. I have travelled thousands of miles with mine - including a 3,000-mile road trip over six days, plus that one air trip, which entailed about 12 hours crate time for old Patch, Los Angeles to Seattle to Juneau. I am always terrified one will bolt, so I keep them confined while away from home: crated, or leashed, or behind a door that can't be accidentally opened. Cats can go a long time without eliminating. I make a litterbox available as often as possible (folding canvas camp basin works great), and I pad the bottom of the crate with thick towels. Only a few "accidents" have ever occurred, even on long travel legs. I worry more about keeping them hydrated than I do about the result, as baggage handlers are likely to spill any water dish and I've never been able to train a cat to use a hamster tube. Many airports now provide "comfort areas" for travelling pets, though how animals manage in the cargo hold, I do not want to speculate.

I was interested in what does an animal do in the cabin when it is out of it's holder.

Does it just pee and poop every where or
