Best of luck! I drove my two senior cats from Canada to the US. 3 days trip, 6-7 hours in the car everyday... most of the time they just sleep. Cats are tough, they can handle a little public transportation : )

Well, that makes a change - a big CAT being followed by a couple of "Deere". It's often the other way round!

Took two cats from Singapore to Auckland, two cages, cargo hold of a 747. On arrival we had to collect them from a back room of Customs and Imm. where their pre-approved importation "papers" had to be scrutinised. Two unhappy, and therefore noisy cats caused the Imm.Hofficer to give the paperwork only a brief scrutiny before he said, "get those two outta here, quick"

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Considering some of the pond life we all have had to sit next to on various train trips, who have never been in contact with soap, warm water or deodorant, the aforementioned is nothing in comparison.

I had the misfortune to sit next to a no-arse-wipe for 9 hours on an Emirates flight. A fart would have been as a scented rose in comparison.

Erm, not quite.

Now that the representative of the New World Order has arrived, the real settling in process will commence.

To save the cat any more inconvenience than is necessary, as a hooman it's essential you read, and comply, with this book.....thus ensuring the status quo is established from the onset......

All very satisfying!

But I guess the film "Cats on a Train" will never have the same appeal as "Snakes on a Plane"..........

K&C, I've been owned by cats all my life. Don't need a beginner's instruction manual.
