Cats tend to find travelling very stressful and in most cases they are best left at home or put into a cattery whilst their owner is away. However, if you need to take any pet on a longer journey it is important that you are properly prepared.

Cats from the UK are now permitted to travel abroad and return home without a quarantine period provided strict rules are followed. Cats travelling abroad require a pet passport and must be vaccinated against rabies. There are a number of other potential problems to consider before taking your pet on holiday with you so always consult your vet for advice before travelling.
