Question by ncgirl: Have you done airplane travel with your pet?
I have never taken my dog anywhere with me and I want to know how they fare? Do they travel in luggage compartment? Do they get smooth trip? I know there is probably a cost but I’m mostly worried about his comfort. Thanks advance for answers.
Thank you Handy — I am an over protective mommy.

I traveled with a cat once, long ago. They put him in a small kennel and he rode all the way under my seat, crying all the time, lol.
We once sent my husband’s grandma’s dog to California from Michigan. We had to buy a special crate and he rode in the baggage compartment. Of course, I don’t know how he felt about it, but Grandma said he was one happy camper when he finally got there and saw her. I imagine it gets cold down there, so maybe some comforting toys and a pillow would be nice for your dog to take along on the journey. Dogs are so resilient.

Question by SummerLove13: What is the least expensive way/place to ship my dog and cat from Chicago to Sweden?
I am moving from Chicago to Sweden in August and need to either ship my animals or have them fly with me. I have a cat that is 13 pounds and a dog that weighs 67 pounds. Anyone with advice on where to look for the cheapest price would be greatly appreciated!
Answer by zafir
As you’re probably flying from the US to Sweden, it would be a good idea to see if your airline will take them as checked baggage. Most airlines will do this. It would be much better for the animals to travel with you as seeing you on arrival after such a strange trip will reassure them. Your airline will advise of the types of crate necessary to transport the animals.
Have you checked the Swedish government requirements for importing pets? See http://www.sjv.se/home/amnesomraden/animalhealthwelfare/importexportofliveanimals/dogsandcats/listedcontries.4.731e90106fedb4a488000155.html The US is a ‘listed’ country, so you must follow these conditions to import the animals.

Question by New Perspective: What do I do with my outdoor cat during vacation?
I have a male Birman and I want to take him to California with me.
He lives outdoors but we’re going to our summer home he’s never been to.
I’m scared that the time being gone (2 months) is too long for
the neighbors to feed him and whatnot.
Where do I keep him in the car? How do I feed him on the road? Where does he use the bathroom? How will he react to our summer home he has never been to before?
Answer by wendy_da_goodlil_witch
my cat loved to travel and would sit on my lap while I drove. that’s really not a good idea. animals should be kept in pet carriers while the car is moving. feed him in the carrier. stop every couple of hours at a roadside rest stop and let him out of the carrier to use a litter box. you can put a harness and leash on him, but he probably wouldn’t like that. he might like the summer home. he’ll spend the first day or 2 sniffing all around and exploring his new surroundings. how far are you going? how long will it take? it will take longer with the cat if you make frequent stops.
