Moving cat to NZ

Postby feebee » Mon, 17 Sep 2012 5:05 pm

Hi,
We are moving to NZ next month and am wanting to move my cat from here with us.

Does anyone have any advice or recommendations of companies that do this or how you can go about doing it yourself?

Many thanks
Fee

Oh don't do that. Cat's destroy native wildlife in horrific numbers. Did you know that some NZ and Australian citizens are trying to cats banned altogether?

I've heard that cats tend not to survive quarantine in Austrralia as well.

Leave your pussy behind.

Thanks?!
We are not moving to Australia so no quarantine issues.
And it is an indoor cat so no wildlife destroying issues either...

You may want to look into PetRelocation.com. They're US based, and are moving our cat to Singapore and will relocate her back to the US. They may be an option for you, as I know that they contract with local Singaporean Movers when they relo a pet back to the US, so they may have connections with relocating from Singapore to another (non-US) country.

I've priced the alternatives, and while expensive, they're right in line with the other full service US based relocation companies I've researched, and seem to know what they're doing.

I hope this helps, and as a pet lover, I understand how important it is to find a good, safe way to get your pet to your next home!

Cats are responsible for almost wiping out this species in NZ/

Interesting stat on the parrots, but I can guarantee my 14 lb housebound feline would have no interest...

Thanks very much uscate - I have contacted them and are now waiting for a reply. It also gave me the idea to contact the people that moved her from the UK to here, so they may also have a contact in the Singapore market.

You are right, as a fellow pet lover, I want her to be safe and looked after as she makes her way to her new country!

Take care and good luck with your move to Singapore!
