Hope they treat pets better than children on long haul flights is all I can say!

just dont use KLM. I ended up with two caged puppies that had to be left at the airport in Malawi. I howled my eyes out all the way home and had to book another flight to go back and get them!

I found I really useful company in joburg "petwings" which helped to expedite the whole process and helped to organise transfers.

I hope you have some good luck with this, I know how stressful it is but worthwhile in the end!

Thanks tb. I have been quoted here Singapore to Heathrow $2,500 per cat. It is a lot of money so I was considering the Air France route but maybe it might just be too much stress and hassle. How did the cat become so dehydrated? I thought you were allowed to feed and give water during the flight?

One of my cats is deaf and howls like a banshee so maybe having her in a cage in a cabin would just be too stressful for us allsmile

Thanks for your reply

We used Air France to move our cat from the UK to France - it was expensive. It was 6 years ago, and only UK to France and from memory was about £500.

Our cat got quite seriously dehydrated and it was a little bit touch and go for a week or so. It was further complicated by the fact that the removal men were late, and our first load contained her usual food.

We are moving from Singapore to UK soon and I am looking at costs for shipping our 2 cats back. The costs offered by companies here are outrageous! Has anyone used Air France to do this?
