Hello

Perhaps someone out there can answer this for me. I am planning on moving to the
States.. one of these days.. still waiting for the visa!

Anyways... I have 3 cats who I would love to send ahead of me to my finace so that I
do not have to worry about them when I move. Can I do that? I know I cannot send my
furniture ahead.. how about pets?

Anyone ever done this before?

I know what I'd do if my fiance sent me three cats ahead of her. The question would
only be, which gun? I fancy the 22, pump-action for this one.

Oh my allergies are aggravated at the very thought.

one. Then (instead of her) you will go through adjustment of "status" when you get
neutered.

Thanks for the humour! Always good to know you can ask and receive the
information you need.

ANyone out there with a real answer to this question.. can you send pets to the
States before you go?

You might check the website (if there is one) of the airline you are going
through. They may actually have a section on policies for carrying pets across
international borders.

This is my opinion of the situation. If I were in your situation, I would send my
cats on ahead. For one, I'd miss them during the long wait for the visa to come
through and I'd, at least, have them there for company while pining away for my
sweetheart.

For two, what if something happens that you don't get your visa. Yes, that can
happen but as long as you have all your paperwork in order and your stories
straight you'll be fine...but just in case, what if. Or, and I've seen this
happen, too, what if something happens to the relationship during the wait? Then
you've cat Kitties Three stuck in the States with someone who is really abhorring
them and you'll have to worry about getting them back.

For three, I don't know what country you are coming from. If you are flying, then
you have no choice about how the cats are going to get there with you. If you are
driving from Canada or Mexico, then you can have the cats in the car with you and
you can be a comfort to them.

So, that's my thoughts about your question.
