Incredible Experiences: Cat Transport to Denmark
My pet cat, Bandit, has just arrived in Denmark, safe and sound! I'd like to share our story...
My fiance is Danish and lives in Denmark. After a couple of years of traveling back and forth, we decided that my cat Bandit and I would move to Denmark.
I was pretty overwhelmed when I started to look into ways to move pets abroad. The main obstacle was that Bandit simply weighed too much (17 lbs) to go in-cabin on the flight. The other option, flying as cargo, seemed unappealing and I had read a lot of horror stories.
A friend recommended that I look into a pet relocation service, as that was how she moved her dog from Australia to England. I did a web search and found PetRelocation, among others.
All of my interactions with PetRelocation were extremely positive. They really know the ins and outs of pet relocation. I initially spent about 30 minutes on the phone asking a lot of questions and learned about the process. I felt that PetRelocation had a lot of experience and connections with certain airlines that made me feel better about transporting my cat.
They also took care of all the details. All that I really needed to do was buy the crate and do a little crate training. I also had to bring the cat to the vet as well, but PetRelocation had already handled filling in the paperwork. My vet was really appreciative of this.
I opted for door-to-door service, which went flawlessly. Our move happened right after Hurricane Sandy, which was pretty nerve-wracking, but our relocation consultant monitored the situation closely and everything went on according to plan.
On the day of the move, I received constant email updates and also was able to track my cat all through the journey. The notifications were timely and extremely helpful. In Denmark, my fiance received calls when the plane landed and also right before the cat and agent arrived at his doorstep.
My cat took the trip pretty well. He explored the apartment and is all settled in. I arrived the next day and he came out to greet me. We are very pleased with the services from PetRelocation. It was everything that they said it would be and I would definitely recommend them or use them if we ever move again!
