Shipment of cats by air: precautions to ensure a safe journey

The shipment of a cat by air is often a source of concern for whoever has to move to another country and wishes to take their loving feline with them.

Contrary to what most people think, traveling by plane is the most safe and comfortable transportation means for our four-legged friends; this has been confirmed by a thorough study conducted by Air Cargo World; the statistical data collected by major airlines show an incredibly low rate of accidents.

Bliss Pet Services operates with the best airline companies and makes use of serious and qualified partners, whose only priority is the animal’s well-being. In accordance with IATA regulations, at the client’s request, we provide pet crates approved by IATA, equipped with all the necessary safety precautions, fundamental for your cat; the dimensions and the characteristics of the pet kennel are very important for the comfort of the “small traveler” during the journey. An important rule to be observed by all animal owners is the one relating to sedatives:

 It is extremely inadvisable to give tranquillizers to felines during the trip, in that they may be harmful for their own health. Do not give any kind of tranquillizers to your cat!

I am thankful to Bliss Pets for helping me bringing my cats from Portugal to the USA.
Because I could not leave the country to go get my cats, I wanted to hire a company and I was confident that would treat my cats with respect and attention. I hired Bliss Pets because they seemed a company that cared for the well being of animals during the course of the journey.
I could follow their journey, and when they did the layover there was someone from the company to give me news of their condition.
They took longer at customs to be released because for some reason Customs couldn´t find some of the documents. I trusted Bliss Pet to resolve the situation because I knew that everything was in order. When they were released I meet them, and they were fine and missing us.
The next day it was as if nothing had happened, they were happy healthy cats.

In September I went to my sister’s wedding in a beautiful vineyard near Florence called Cinciano. On our last night there an undernourished badly injured cat walked past me.
I managed to find him a local vet who helped nurse him back to health and I found him a home in England. I named him Cinciano.
At this point, I needed to get him to the UK – and so the introduction to Bliss Pets. From the first phone call, Bliss was friendly, helpful and reassuring. Over the next few weeks, they patiently guided me through the process of getting Cinciano back to the UK.
Bliss gave such a professional service, answering all my questions promptly and with a positive attitude. They had incredible attention to detail and a very personal approach sending me photos and videos of Cinciano throughout his journey. They made me feel like I was their only client.
Cinciano is now safely back in the UK thanks to Bliss. I cannot thank them enough, and I know if Cinciano could talk he would say thank you also.
