Pet Travel Story: Twiggie’s First International Move

catIncredible Experiences: Transporting a Cat to India

Twiggie is now a world traveler, and PetRelocation made his trip possible with as little worry as possible.

Chicago to Bangalore is a 22-hour flight that includes a five-hour layover in Germany. We had to arrive in India first, then Twiggie arrived a few days later. PetRelocation has a cat boarder they use in these situations. The boarder was fantastic and very caring and they sent pictures and updates.

PetRelocation provided a detailed itinerary and stuck to it. We were provided updates on Twiggie during his flight, and PetRelocation answered all questions quickly and their answers were complete. They provided information before I could ask. They pay great attention to detail.

For India, Twiggie had to see the vet 10 days prior to fly out so documents could be submitted to India. PetRelocation was in constant contact with the vet to ensure the required information was provided and the forms completed correctly.

We also sent special food with Twiggie for him to have at the boarders and for the flight. He was given the food correctly. The receiving company in Bangalore was also great with communication, and we started hearing from them the day before Twiggie arrived with periodic updates.

Twiggie arrived ready to see us and ready to get out of the carrier. The carrier was big enough for him to stand up and move a little. He has not displayed any negative effects from this move. He is his normal self. Twiggie is a Maine Coon (long haired cat).

We will be using PetRelocation for the trip home. I can not say enough good things about PetRelocation. They sincerely cared about Twiggie and us.

Thank you,
