For cats coming back to the UK or for staying in OZ when you arrive?

We bought two cats back from Perth but they didnt do quarantine as they had rabies vaccines instead, but has to be done 7 months before you travel to avoid quarantine here on arrival.

ok, I know the going rate for our two cats to be boarded together for a week was (last August when we visited Scotland) ten pounds a day. It was six pounds for one cat on its own.

As JaneyRay said, you need about 7 months (6 months after the positive rabies titer test)

Rabbits cannot qualify for PETS, so require normal quarantine.

I believe that myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic diarrhoea disease [VHD] vaccinations are not nec. pre import [since both diseases are endemic in the UK] - but check with DEFRA when you apply for the import licence, they will provide all the conditions.

However be aware some breeds are not allowed [tho' all rabbits in Oz are prob. European anyway!] See link and quote below;

http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/quar...er-mammals.htm

'Rabbits are not only controlled by the above mentioned Order but also by the Non-Indigenous Rabbits (Prohibition of Importation and Keeping) Order 1954 which prohibits the importation into, or keeping within Great Britain of all species of rabbits, other than the European species.'

check out local RSPCA kennels they are the cheapest. If you phone your local one they will give you all the info and prices you need or check the DEFRA site for listings.

?. No RSPCA kennels do quarantine [no premises are to that standard], they have bought out the one I used to work at, but it will not be a quarantine kennels. SSPCA Strathclyde is the only 'charity' option I can see.

FYI, my dog spent 6 months with SSPCA "Strathclyde" (actually it was in Dumbarton, presume it was the same one). They were fantastic.

You may not find a suitable quarantine kennel close to where you are (I'm referring to the OP here, BTW). Particularly if it will be for only a month or two, that may not be a problem - they do adjust to you not being around, and in fact I've heard it said that if you visit only every now and again it can actually be worse for the animal (confusing). You get a stress-free first few weeks settling in without worrying about animals, then you get to bring them home after you are all settled.
