Here in our Newark veterinarian clinic we try to give people as much information as possible about flying with cats.

If you have a big will have to go in the aircraft's hold. This is not advisable at all for a cat as it is an extremely uncomfortable, rough, frightening experience, and even dangerous. The environment and surroundings are very rough for a cat to handle and he is in danger of even dying from overheating if your plane was stationary for an extended amount of time due to a long stop over etc... Also sometimes luggage gets sent to the wrong destination and the cat is at risk of this happening to him as well. If there is not any way for you to get out of having to fly with your cat, make sure to take the necessary precautions by familiarizing yourself with all of the airline's transportation protocols before the flight. Make sure to get an airline approved cat and do all the necessary paperwork. Try not to travel in the hottest or coldest time of the year, and if you can, get a non stop fight. Let at least one of the flight attendants and a pilot know that you have a cat on the flight. Also we here in the Newark veterinarian clinic encourage our pet owners to come down and talk about the different risks with our veterinarian and get any last minute advice he has to give you concerning things like pet just in case your cat does not do well once in the air.
