Oh sweet lord :eek:

We were worried about ours because the pedigree has unspecified bits that just refer to F4 and above and I read people lied about their cats putting that instead of the right generations so we were petrified. But I think this is why getting the company used to dealing with this was vital. Perhaps they are less harsh on people who transport pets than on individuals? Who knows. We even took photos of ours and sent that in to the airport so they can see they don't look wild. It was kinda funny, our friend flew with us on the plane with his ragdoll and when he rang the airport to ask about pick up, they asked him if this is about our cats :mrgreen:
They were already briefed on our cats and the inspector was booked weeks before which was good. I would say it is vital not to skimp on paying for paperwork to be done right. It looked complicated and it was contradictory (i.e. they said somewhere that indoor cats don't need rabies shot but we did it just in case so no one can say well, you need it, as we were advised this is necessary by the agent dealing with stuff).
It took some stress out of the stressful experience to be honest.

Hi, did you need to obtain a CITES permit to export from the UK? I'm moving back to the US soon and the US side says I do need an export permit, UK side says I don't need one. Do you remember what you had to do?
Thanks,
Kirsten


Sorry Kirsten, only now seen this. Yes we did need to go through department of wildlife but used the company for everything, called World care pet transport. They organised paperwork and transport. The paperwork seemed quite complex and we didn't want to mess it up. You need to supply pedigree papers.
Hope that helped. They were very good. provided crates a month before so cats got used to them.

If U.S. Fish and Wildlife says you need something, it doesn't matter what the other side says. Do it anyway. It's better to have extra paperwork than the wrong paperwork as the US will take your cat and you won't get it back. I don't know what they do with them -- probably euthanize them. This is a strong point with the breeders in Europe who are having bengals confiscated.

Yes I agree, did not want to mess up. We had an official come to the airport to see that cats were who we said they were too. Best to have paperwork in order. Also, prior to organising stuff with the company we were ship them with, we were getting quotes from another company who did not offer paperwork and did not know all the ins and outs of importing Bengals. Make sure you get the right advice as you can lose a beloved pet if paperwork is not in order.
