Getting 5 cats back to UK

Postby princess peach » Thu Mar 18, 2010 4:37 pm

My lovely elderly clients have decided to go back to UK in October.They asked me today if i knew of the best way of getting their 5 puddy cats back home.She has looked into courier at a cost of 350 euros per cat :crazy: She then talked about sedation. :?
Does anyone know of a resonably cheap and decent way of getting all the cats back to UK.
Obviously they have until October to get sorted.I think the cats have had the relavent tests needed to get them back.They now need to sort out the best way to travel home for the cats.
What services have you used and how did the cats cope?

Our cats have flown twice. Last time with Monarch. I am not very keen but at least it is so much shorter than the road journey. They were fine and one of my cats was 17 last time she flew. Costly though, about £850 for the two :shock:

Oh crikey!!
Thats a lot,she has five of them :shock:
I think it would be cheaper for them to hire a man with a van,someone who can drive them back for a fee. :(

Hi PP,
Any chance you could PM me the contact for the cat carrier, I'm currently trying to ship my best friend's small dog back to UK, and the best price I've got is 460€.

We brought our 2 cats over to the CDS overland using a company called EasyPet. It cost us £240 per cat, as they were able to put them together in the same crate, and they may offer a deal for 5 cats?? It is a long trip, but I have to say our cats seemed none the worse for wear and well looked after from pick up to drop off.

We brought our Pug over with easypet and they were excellent. Cost £395 and collected and delivered door to door. They even looked after him at no charge for a few days as they got back before us.
They are really good with the animals.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to drown*the cats and buy new ones in the UK?

* ... or failing that - give them away to a good home.

... or even better ... Flybe.com says
Guide dogs will be carried on all flights, but need to be booked in advance. The carriage of cats and dogs is allowed as cargo only. Telephone Globe Air Cargo 0208 757 4776 for more information.

Hola
Ask for a quotation from pet taxi transport.
Please mention that Animals In Distress (A.I.D.) gave you their email address.
It might help with the price?
