What determines the cost of Aegean shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Aegean.

rating
Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

Time ⏱⏱

ratingAir travel

Cost $$$

Time ⏱⏱⏱

Ground and air travel have different associated costs. Flying is typically the fastest option, but also the most expensive and taxing on your pet.

rating
Travel distance

The further you need to transport your pet, the more it'll cost. If you're using ground transportation, you'll have to factor in fuel costs, lodging, meals on the road and wear-and-tear on your vehicle. These costs are applicable whether you drive the pet yourself or you hire a transporter through CitizenShipper. Airlines charge more for longer plane rides as well. This is due to the cost of fuel and the need compensate pilots and flight attendants.

rating
Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Aegean, they’ll need to travel in the cargo hold if they’re over 20 pounds. You’ll also need to buy a USDA-approved crate, which can cost around $200. With ground transport, it’s easier for drivers to accommodate small pets.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Aegean is ensuring they’re healthy enough to travel. Most species require a vet-issued health certificate to cross state lines. This will cost $50 to $300. You’ll likely need to purchase some equipment too – such as a crate and travel supplies.

Transporting Your Aegean Cat: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

Aegean Cats, native to the beautiful Greek islands, are not only known for their striking appearance but also for their sociable and friendly nature. These cats often exhibit a high level of intelligence and an energetic disposition, making them both curious and adaptable. However, their active temperament means they can be sensitive to changes in their environment, which is a crucial factor to consider during transportation. Aegean Cats are strong swimmers, a testament to their island origins, but this doesn't necessarily translate to a love for travel. Understanding their need for interaction and mental stimulation can help in making their transport experience as comfortable as possible.

Size and Care Requirements

Aegean Cats are medium-sized, robust cats with a muscular build, weighing between 7 to 10 pounds on average. Their care needs are generally straightforward with a need for regular grooming to maintain their semi-long to long fur coat. When preparing for transportation, ensuring their comfort is key; this includes a spacious carrier that allows for movement, and maybe even includes a familiar blanket or toy inside to reduce stress. Special considerations should be taken for their playful and inquisitive nature, ensuring that the carrier is secure and escape-proof.

Health and Safety Protocols

Health and safety are paramount when transporting any pet, and Aegean Cats are no exception. A thorough health check-up prior to travel is essential to ensure that your Aegean Cat is fit for the journey. This should include up-to-date vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatments. Additionally, a familiarity with the pet's normal temperament and any existing health issues is crucial for drivers, to ensure any stress or health-related issues can be quickly identified and addressed during transit.

How to prepare your Aegean for transport

At CitizenShipper, we pride ourselves on making pet transportation a breeze. However, there are things you can do ahead of time to make your best friend’s trip safer and more comfortable.

Talk to your veterinarian

Your pet’s safety is number one – that’s why checking in with your vet before finalizing any travel plans is essential.

Can’t make it to the vet’s office in time? Conveniently video chat with a qualified veterinarian at FirstVet – one of our amazing partners.

Here are the questions you’ll want to ask your vet:

  • Is my pet healthy enough for transport?
  • Is my pet up to date on their vaccines?
  • Is my pet’s microchip still in place and scannable?

Medical Records and Vaccinations

Before embarking on any journey, ensure all medical records are current and easily accessible. For Aegean Cats, this includes vaccination records for rabies, feline distemper, and calicivirus, among others. Proof of spaying or neutering may also be required. Keeping a well-documented health history handy can be invaluable, especially for long-distance travels or if an unexpected visit to the veterinarian is needed.

Identification and Security

Proper identification is crucial for the safety of your Aegean Cat during transport. A collar with an ID tag displaying your contact information, along with microchipping, offers a robust solution for keeping your feline friend secure. Ensure that all information is up-to-date and the microchip is registered to a current phone number and address.

Travel Comforts for Aegean Cat

To make the travel experience less stressful for your Aegean Cat, include familiar items in their carrier, such as their favorite blanket, toys, or even a piece of clothing with your scent. This can provide a sense of security and comfort during the journey. Also, ensure the carrier is well-ventilated, stable, and placed in a quiet area of the vehicle to help keep your cat calm and relaxed.

Essential pet transport travel supplies include:

  • Food, bowls and fresh water
  • Collars and leashes
  • Waste bags
  • Medication
  • First-aid supplies
  • Any travel documents
  • A secure, USDA-approved travel crate

Traveling to a new place is exciting but stressful for your pet. Pack their favorite toys, a bed or a comfy blanket to help them enjoy their journey. Familiar items remind them of home and will soothe their anxiety.

Customized Travel Advice for Aegean Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Minimizing stress is essential for the wellbeing of Aegean Cats during travel. Introduction to the carrier well in advance of the trip can help them become accustomed to it. Additionally, the use of feline pheromone sprays or diffusers can provide a calming effect. Consider covering the carrier with a light blanket to create a more secluded and secure environment, reducing stress-induced behaviors.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Keeping your Aegean Cat's feeding routine as normal as possible is vital. Offer meals at the usual times, but avoid feeding right before travel to prevent motion sickness. Portable litter boxes are available and can be placed in the carrier for long-distance trips, or you can plan for regular breaks to allow your cat access to a litter box in a secure environment.

Climate and Comfort

Aegean Cats, with their semi-long fur, are generally adaptable to a range of temperatures. However, it’s important to maintain a comfortable and stable climate within the vehicle. Avoid direct sunlight on the carrier and never leave your cat in a parked car, as temperatures can rise rapidly to dangerous levels. Ensure ample airflow within the carrier to keep your cat comfortable throughout the journey.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Aegean Cat

Acclimating to New Spaces

Once you’ve arrived at your destination, give your Aegean Cat time to adjust to their new surroundings. Start by setting up a small, quiet area with all their essentials—food, water, litter box, and bedding. Gradually introduce them to larger areas of the space as they become more comfortable. Remember, patience is key; some cats may take longer to acclimate than others.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitoring your Aegean Cat's health after travel is crucial. Look for signs of stress or illness, such as changes in appetite, behavior, or litter box usage. If you notice any concerning symptoms, consult with a veterinarian promptly to ensure your cat’s health and wellbeing are maintained.

Maintaining Well-being

To promote the overall well-being of your Aegean Cat, strive to keep their routine consistent in the new environment. This includes meal times, play sessions, and cuddle times. Familiar routines can help reduce stress and make the transition smoother for your feline friend.
