I'm planning to move my two cats with me in September and would love some advice. I have already checked out the APHIS information so I will know what paperwork to bring (unfortunately their site seems to be down today but hopefully will be back up soon.) The cats have never flown before and they are used to being indoor cats. Luke hates being in a car. He meows loudly and constantly - can go on for hours! I will ask the vet about sedating them, and hopefully that will work. My nightmare is he cries the whole way and they kick us off the plane! I'm also wondering about some of the bad press on flying with pets recently. A friend is going to come with me to help me move, so at least each of us can take one cat on the plane. So my questions: 1) What experiences have others had with flying their cats as baggage? Did you need to tranquilize them, and did that help? Which airlines seem to be most accommodating? 2) What was the transition like once you arrived? Do you have indoor cats? Is this doable? 3) Is it easy to find cat sitters for when I need to go out of town? 4) What kind of cat food is available in Costa Rica? What is the quality like? Any other advice to help with the kitties' transition?
Hello everybody! I m looking to meet dog lovers both near us ( in the Sarchi area), AND all over Costa Rica who might be interested in forming a little pet care co-operative of sorts! We could all have allot of fun, allow each other to travel while keeping each other’s dear mascotas safe and happy. Pet care could be on an exchange basis only, or on a fee basis, or any combination. We have two medium sized dogs, who are older and used to lots of company. We want to travel regularly for short periods (from two nights to two weeks max) to a variety of places in CR and also Panama. Anybody interested in a house/dog/pet exchange? I would be happy to take great care of your dogs and house while you travel, or to take a dog or two into our home while you travel. We have lots of experience with a wide variety of dog breeds, as well as many other types of animals. Pet pig? Llamas? Horses? Birds? Looking forward to your help brainstorming this!
