Longhaul with stressy cat?

I'm moving continent. Unfortunately there are no direct flights. Will involve 3 changes and take approx 28 hrs including stopovers. After that a 4 hour car journey.

My lovely cat is very easily stressed.
Is it cruel to take her? Am I being selfish?

I have a couple of months to prepare her. Has anybody done this?

Have you spoken to any pet relocation companies? They often use cargo flights and have their own processes etc. so it may involve fewer changes/less time.

Thank you. I will look into it.

Yes I moved my 3 cats from Borneo to the UK- a similar journey with flight changes. I was really anxious beforehand. They coped incredibly well and I'm so glad we did it. 8 years on they are happy suburban cats after their first 4 years in the jungle! The vet there helped organise their paperwork, health checks and travel.

That's very reassuring! Thanks
