WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE SHIPPING PROCESS OF KITTEN
AS A COURTESY TO OUR NEW FAMILIES, WE WILL GLADLY MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO SHIP THE KITTEN BY AIR TRAVEL.
Many new families are concerned about flying the kitten. They are afraid it will be too stressful on the kitten. They have read horror stories about the way airlines treated kittens, etc. I am always happy to see a concerned family. That means they will be good care-givers. But lay your concerns aside. Perhaps airlines have treated kittens poorly in the past… that was before my time, I guess because ever since I have been flying kittens (since 1998), there have been Federal regulations that ensured the health, safety and comfort of the kitten. The airlines are very concerned that the kittens are safe and comfortable. The new families report that the kittens come off of the plane bouncing and ready to play, it is really pretty hard to intimidate a website. We will not ship a kitten unless we know the kitten can be shipped in relative comfort.

Cost Of Shipping

The usual cost of shipping the kitten is $600.00 anywhere within the Continental United States. Cost is subject to change by airline price increase. This includes the airfare, required vet checked, certificate of health, travel crate, and my trip to the airport (80 miles each way).

Want a faster flight you will have to use Dash which is a extra cost.

Cost is subject to change by airline price increases.

AFTER ALL BALANCES HAVE BEEN PAID
I’ll call the airlines and book the pup. I will need to know your nearest 2 airports, who will pick up the pup and your address and 2 contact numbers, The day and time will depend primarily on the flight, availability and temperature as well as when we both can travel to the airport usually, I can only book a flight 3 days in advance so they are aware of the temperatures for shipping. After I have booked the pup flight, I will email or call you with the flight times, airway bill and location where the kitten is to be picked up. Then all you need to do is pick the pup at your airport

The airlines provide an ‘Airway Bill Number’ which can to be used to track the kitten’s flight, As soon as I put the kitten on the flight, I call the new family confirming the kitten made the flight and providing the Airway Bill Number so they can keep track of the precious baby across the nation !

The kitten will be in a travel crate. ( This crate can also be used as the kitten’s training.’) There will be a Royal Canin kitten kit strapped with a sample of food and fresh bottled water on top of the crate and his or her personal teddy bear.

Shipping

We ship kittens by Delta Airlines and United Airlines and other Airlines after they are 8 weeks old. Airlines will restrict shipping until kittens are 8 weeks old by rule. The airline is very experienced in animal shipping. They take excellent care using pet care professional while they maintain strict guidelines assuring the safety of your pet. Normal shipping time length are between 4-8 hours total ( all in one day ) depending on flight and distance, Flights are booked in advance with arrival times and confirmation number Delta has climate control facilities where ever the kittens are. We ship Monday through Sunday. We do ship on Holidays, We want your shipping experience to be without difficulty and will do everything we can to assure you have a great experience when picking your kitten from the airport,

NOTE
Due to extreme summer heat in Arizona cities only the flight times from Origin cities must be after 9:00 pm during the summer heat, We also need two closet Airports so, I can arrange to ship with the Airlines.

SHIPPING TO CANADA
WE DO SHIP TO CANADA AT THE SAME COST.
SHIPPING AND KITTEN PAYMENTS
All cost must be prepaid 3 days before we can ship kitten out, We accept method of payment by US Postal money order or Pay Pal

FORMS OF IDENTIFICATION
Once the kitten is dropped off at the airport. You will need 2 forms of identification When picking up the kitten. I will need 2 contact numbers.The name on the paperwork is who they will only release the kitten to, If someone else is picking up the kitten, You will need to let me know the name so that, I can make a note on the paperwork,If you do not then most likely the airline will not release the kitten. This is all for your protection so that someone else cannot claim your kitten.

The kitten will be in a travel crate. ( This crate can also be used as the kitten’s training.’) There will be a Royal Canin kitten kit strapped with a sample of food and fresh bottled water on top of the crate and his or her personal teddy bear.

IMPORTANT!
Also strapped to the top of the crate is the kitten’s paperwork! The shot record, vet paperwork, AKC registration paperwork, microchip information, etc, will be in an envelope strapped to the top of the kitten’s crate.

Here is a suggested checklist for when you go to the airport to pick up your kitten:

1. harness

2. leash

3.fresh/clean bedding (in case the kitten has had an accident)

4. kitten wipes or a clean washcloth

5. lots of hugs and kisses…they come out of there ready to play
