If kitten has far to travel
we suggest Delta airlines
in cabin pet policy.
You or a trusted family member/friend
can use George Bush Intercontinental.
Request a private TSA screening of pet and carrier
which is done in a closed room
having less likelihood of a runaway.
A leash and harness are also a good idea.
There are some hoops to jump thru with flying:
at 12 weeks of age, kittens are supposed to have their rabies vaccination
but must wait 30 days after the rabies vaccination to fly
At least this is the policy with United airlines.
So, it's best to fly prior to 12 weeks of age if flying United.
If tickets are purchased a month or so in advance,
they can be much cheaper.
Flying Delta is suggested.
Another option is an inflight nanny.
This is when kitten flies in cabin
with a nanny who delivers to the Buyer's airport.
Costs for inflight nanny include:
*airline ticket for person
*$___ fee toward nanny's service
who takes Buyer's place, in being subject to travel trials (weather, delays, mask restrictions, etc.)
*airline fee for in cabin pet
*carrier, harness, leash, towel dishes, food for the trip
* Jet Pet Pals transport by air with a nanny.
They are insured.
They have a Facebook page.
Prices: 500-650 which is very reasonable.
They are recommened by our trusted Bengal breeder community and Boyd's Bengals.
Another option is a pet courier.
It could mean days of pet travelling.
The days of travel mean more stress on the pet,
which could refuse to eat, and possibly end up in poor health
by the time it arrives to it's new home.
The cost of gasoline has recently gone up so much.
Pet courier must be vetted:
ie: used by a local breeder
have good references.
