What is the best way to transport two cats if the airlines only allow one per passenger? I will be the only passenger.


Hi Laura,

Thanks for your question! You're right that you won't be able to bring both cats with you in the cabin, but you can fly one or both of them in the cargo hold. We recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline (Continental is our preferred choice) for your trip. This might sound scary, but as you can see from this video, the experience of flying in cargo is safe and often more comfortable for pets than being in the cabin.

Please contact us if you have more questions or if you'd like some help carrying out your move. Good luck!
