Can you answer a question for us? My friend is returning to the States with her cats and we're wondering if two or three cats can travel together in the same pet carrier.
Great question. Since our pets can often be found cuddling up close to one another it makes sense that you'd consider letting them travel in the same crate, but generally we avoid doing this for a few reasons. One, many airlines do not allow it, and two, it's not always the safest thing to do for the pets. It may seem easier, but it's important to make your pets' well-being the biggest priority.
Take a look at our blog for a deeper discussion of pets and travel crates as well as the pet import requirements for the US, and please contact us if you have any more questions!
