Your kitten departs from the airport using the airlines which are best suited for delivery based on your location. He/she travels in a climate-controlled cabin area for pets. He/she travels in a climate-controlled cabin area for pets in an airline-approved carrier. Ahead of time, you will have a flight #, arrival time, and a reference # that identifies your kitten. We make all the arrangements for you, and you pick your kitten up at the airport. Just like picking up a person & you will need a reference/airbill number. Shipping is totally safe & stress-free on the kitten. You will receive a kitten within 5-6 hours the same day after shipping depending on your location. Kittens on planes are as safe as you or me flying. I have shipped dogs for more than 14 years now. I always try to ship direct non-stop when flying kittens and adults. My kittens are very comfortable in my experience and opinion, and the new owners tell me that their new kitten has arrived happy and not at all stressed.
We ship our kittens using airlines because it is the fastest & safest way to transport our kittens from our place to yours, especially if you live far away or in another state. Our kittens are shipped in an airline-approved plastic pet kennel that we customize depending on the weight of the kitten, the distance or duration of the journey. They ride in a special climate-controlled & pressurized compartment on the plane, which is no different from the cabin. They are not in the same compartment as the passenger luggage.
Our shipping crates are clearly marked with colorful “LIVE ANIMALS” and “UP” stickers. We mark the crates clearly with the destination airport, the confirmation number, the phone, and the customer’s address. When we know that a kitten is going to be shipped, we play with them in the crate prior to shipping, so they are used to it. They have never shown fear of the crate. We put lots of food & plenty of water in the shipping crate. The water provides all the moisture the kitten needs during delivery. One reason we do this is in case, in the unlikely event the kitten should get stuck at an airport overnight (because of connecting flight trouble), we don’t have to worry if they have enough to eat or drink. Although traveling is not that hard on them, we do not like to make them spend any more time than absolutely necessary in transit. For this reason, we also look for the shortest route & always schedule direct flights if possible.
We check weather conditions at the receiving end and only ship when we consider it safe. We put our kitten’s’ health above all other considerations. We do not ship when we feel it could be dangerous to the kitten’s well-being. We usually ship Monday – Saturday. We guarantee the safe & healthy arrival of your kitten. We WILL NOT SHIP if we feel that weather conditions are hazardous for the kitten. Your kitten may take few days to adjust once they get to their new homes, sometimes it takes them a day or two to settle in, but by far, the vast majority of people tell us they just step right out of the shipping crate & act right at home.
