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 Cyprus, 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 Cyprus 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 Cyprus Cat: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

Cyprus Cats are recognized for their exceptional adaptability and sociable nature, making them excellent companions during travel. With a history deeply rooted in the Mediterranean culture, these felines possess a unique blend of resilience and curiosity. Their robust genetic makeup allows them to adjust relatively quickly to new environments, which can significantly ease the transportation experience. However, their inquisitive nature means that securing their carrier is essential to prevent escape attempts during transit.

Size and Care Requirements

The Cyprus Cat is a medium-sized breed, typically weighing between 8 to 12 pounds, with a sturdy build. When transporting these cats, it's crucial to provide a spacious carrier that allows them to stand, turn, and lie down comfortably. Their coat, which can range from short to medium length, requires regular grooming to prevent matting and reduce shedding during travel. A well-ventilated carrier will help keep them cool, and incorporating a soft, familiar blanket can provide extra comfort and ease anxiety.

Health and Safety Protocols

Health checks and safety measures are paramount for Cyprus Cats before embarking on a journey. It is advisable to have a vet conduct a comprehensive health examination to ensure the cat is fit for travel. Updating all vaccinations is essential to protect against common feline diseases. Additionally, implementing parasite prevention measures is crucial for their wellbeing during transport. A secure, escape-proof carrier is a must to ensure their safety throughout the journey.

How to prepare your Cyprus 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

Preparing your Cyprus Cat for transport involves gathering all necessary medical documentation and ensuring their vaccinations are up to date. This includes proof of rabies vaccination, as well as records of treatments for fleas, ticks, and worms. Keeping these documents on hand during travel is crucial for meeting airline or interstate travel requirements, facilitating a smoother journey for both you and your feline friend.

Identification and Security

Proper identification is a cornerstone of pet travel security. Equipping your Cyprus Cat with a well-fitted collar and an ID tag displaying your contact information is fundamental. For additional security, consider microchipping as an effective way to track and identify your pet if they happen to escape the carrier. Ensure all contact details are updated and registered with the microchip database prior to travel.

Travel Comforts for Cyprus Cat

To ensure a stress-free journey for your Cyprus Cat, it's vital to include items in the travel kit that evoke the comfort of home. Familiar bedding, toys, and even a piece of your clothing can help reduce anxiety and provide a sense of security. Additionally, including their regular food and water in spill-proof containers can help maintain their routine and prevent digestive upset during transport.

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 Cyprus Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Minimize stress for your Cyprus Cat during transit by acclimating them to their carrier well in advance of the journey. Introduction to the carrier through positive reinforcement, such as treats and play, can make the experience less daunting. During travel, the use of pheromone sprays or a calming blanket can soothe anxiety and create a more tranquil environment.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Adhering to a familiar feeding schedule is crucial when traveling with Cyprus Cats. Offer small, easily digestible meals before the journey to prevent nausea. For prolonged travel, portable litter boxes with familiar litter can provide comfort and encourage use. Ensure to establish a quiet, private area for your cat to relieve themselves during breaks.

Climate and Comfort

Creating a comfortable travel environment is essential, especially considering the Cyprus Cat’s adaptability to various climates. Ensure the carrier is well-ventilated and shielded from direct sunlight, maintaining a moderate temperature. Placing a familiar-scented blanket inside the carrier can provide additional comfort and warmth if needed.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Cyprus Cat

Acclimating to New Spaces

Upon arrival, provide a quiet, secure space for your Cyprus Cat to explore and gradually acclimate. Maintain access to their familiar items, such as bedding and toys, to ease the transition. Observing and allowing them to approach new areas at their own pace will help them adjust more comfortably to their new environment.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitoring the health of your Cyprus Cat after travel is crucial. Look for signs of stress or discomfort, such as changes in eating, drinking, or litter box habits, which may indicate the need for veterinary attention. Ensuring a smooth transition with minimal stress will help prevent post-travel health issues.

Maintaining Well-being

Keeping a consistent routine in feeding, play, and grooming will help your Cyprus Cat maintain their well-being in a new environment. Gradually introduce them to new spaces and routines to avoid overwhelming them. Continuous observation and provision of comfort and security are key to ensuring their happiness and health in their new home.
