Re: Transporting my cat from Canada to UK

No need to use an agent to help you with the paperwork. You can get that help on this forum. The paperwork looks incomprehensible but it is doable. Your vet fills it in (well you help), you then need...

Re: Why did you leave Canada to move back to the UK

I stand corrected, it is people who live outside Toronto who think Torontonians think Toronto is the centre of the universe.

I lived in Toronto for over 30 years and never once thought it was...

Re: The process for buying a property in the UK

To add to what others have said. Assuming you are buying in England (Scotland has a different sytem, don't know about Wales or NI), even if your offer is accepted, it can all fall through. We made a...

Re: thinking of moving back to the UK from Ontario

You asked a question about credit checking, be prepared for it to be problematic. We were out of the country for many many years, so had zero credit history. For our first rental we paid six months...

Re: Moving with pets, or not

I was amazed at the size of crates that I needed for each on the cats. Very glad I did a trial run out to the airport with crate and cat - crate was too small. It was good to know on the day that the...

Re: Moving with pets, or not

Based on the research I did, and discussions with the cats vet, sedation is not a good option as it can interfere with breathing.

Re: Moving with pets, or not

Surprised that you can even do it Uk to Canada but have not tried that.

Re: Moving with pets, or not

Going to the UK from Canada, all pets go in the hold, cats and dogs. Air Canada Cargo Live handles things, there are few blackouts and it is not inexpensive.
