Pet: Archie is an American shorthair cat; 4 years old; 9 lbs. He is spayed and healthy.
Q. Dear PetRelocation,
My daughter drove to Washington, and we need to send her cat to her. What is the best way to send Archie by air? What are IATA requirements for a carrier etc.? My concerns are the cat’s welfare and cost.
I can drive to various airports, including Tampa, Orlando or Sarasota/Bradenton. I want a non-stop flight, if possible.
My daughter lives in Bremerton, WA – a large US Navy town. Since you list “Military moves,” is it possible to deliver the cat to the Bremerton area?
