Shipping a Cat or Kitten on an Airplane
When geographically possible we love to meet the families that are adopting a Persian, Himalayan or Exotic Shorthair kitten from us. However, it is not always possible. When you are looking for a Persian, Himalayan or Exotic Shorthair kitten to adopt and are interested in adopting from us, we can ship your new kitten to you.
What to expect when shipping a kitten on an airplane - Is it safe to ship a kitten on an airplane?
Once upon a time, you could ship Persians and brachycephalic (flat faced) animals on an airplane in Air Cargo. The United States Department of Agriculture banned brachycephalic animals from shipping air cargo. Therefore, to ship a Persian, Himalayan or an Exotic Shorthair cat or kitten, they must ship in the passenger cabin accompanied.
When adopting a kitten from us, if you do not live geographically in our area we can have your kitten shipped and accompanied on an air plane via a Pet Nanny service. A flight pet nanny service is a great way to have a Persian, Himalayan or Exotic Shorthair kitten shipped to you. Pet Nanny's accompany the kitten for the duration of the flight. The pet nanny will meet us at the airport and hand carry the baby to you and meet you at the destination airport. Our Pet Nanny will care for your baby during the entire trip. They are experienced in transporting kittens on an airplane.
The adopting family is solely responsible for the cost of shipping, the kennel and health/flight acclimation certificates. The fees for the Pet Nanny service and shipping a kitten vary depending upon the airline used as well as the destination. However, it ranges approximately $500-$600.
We will make travel arrangements once payment in full has been made and the Pet Nanny will not reserve a flight until payment has been received.
If you prefer to fly to the Denver International Airport to pick up your kitten, we will gladly meet you and hand deliver your kitten to the airport.
