Flying with Kittens

Updated: Dec 13, 2023

This ragdoll kitten flew from Chicago to Austin with a flight nanny to meet her new family. Thank you to for trusting me with this sweetie-pie.

Customers often ask; “What happens if my kitten is crying on the plane?” “What if they are scared?” “What if they PEE?!”

My response; “It is not a problem." 💜 Flying with kittens is one of my specialties. I make great efforts to keep your pet comfortable and safe during their trip. Some cats meow while flying but this actually lets me know they are alert and breathing well. If they are scared I will take time to give them some attention so they know they are not alone.

A warm blanket can help them relax a bit easier. Potty pads are usually placed under the blanket to help with any accidents. But cats very rarely urinate while traveling like this. Sometimes we place a thin blanket over the pet carrier once we are on board the plane to keep them from being overstimulated. For short flights they are offered water before takeoff. For longer flights we may offer a bit of wetfood to keep their blood sugar balanced. We follow instructions from your breeder about meals and snacks. You get updates from me throughout the trip with lots of photos. So if there is ever a concern about your pet’s health or safety you will know about it.
