What determines the cost of Egyptian Mau shipping

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

Mode of transportation

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.

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.

Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Egyptian Mau, 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.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Egyptian Mau 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 Egyptian Mau: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

The Egyptian Mau is not only one of the oldest cat breeds but also one of the most unique, boasting a striking spotted coat and bright green eyes. Known for their high intelligence and playful nature, these cats can sometimes be wary of new environments and strangers. This makes their transportation a matter to be approached with care and understanding. Their strong legs give them an incredible burst of speed, and their agility means they need a secure, escape-proof carrier during transit to keep them safe and reassured.

Size and Care Requirements

Egyptian Mau cats are medium-sized, typically weighing between 6 to 14 pounds, with males generally larger than females. They possess short to medium-length fur that requires routine grooming to prevent matting, especially before a journey to keep them comfortable. It is crucial to select a transport carrier that gives your Mau enough space to stand, turn, and lay down comfortably. Additionally, a familiar blanket or a piece of clothing with the owner’s scent can provide comfort and reduce stress during transportation.

Health and Safety Protocols

Ensuring your Egyptian Mau's health and safety during transport requires a vet check-up to confirm they are fit for travel. This includes a general health assessment and verification of no infectious diseases. Secure, well-ventilated, and temperature-controlled transport conditions are critical to preventing heat stress, particularly for this breed, known for its love of basking in sunlit spots. A detailed travel itinerary with planned stops allows for regular enrichment and hydration breaks.

How to prepare your Egyptian Mau 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

Prior to transportation, compile all relevant medical records and confirm your Egyptian Mau’s vaccinations are up to date, especially rabies, feline leukemia, and FVRCP. Health certificates may be required for interstate travel in the United States, highlighting the importance of preparation. A pre-travel visit to the veterinarian can also advise on additional preventative treatments, such as for fleas and worms, ensuring your Mau travels in the best possible health.

Identification and Security

Proper identification is a non-negotiable aspect of safe travel. A collar with an ID tag displaying your contact information is essential, and microchipping offers an additional layer of security, ensuring your Mau can be quickly returned should they manage to escape their carrier. Furthermore, investing in a high-quality, escape-proof transport carrier further ensures their security throughout the journey.

Travel Comforts for Egyptian Mau

Their own carrier, lined with their bedding or a familiar-scented item, can significantly soothe your Egyptian Mau. Include a selection of their favorite toys and consider a portable, disposable litter box for longer trips. Access to fresh water at all times is paramount, so equip the carrier with a spill-proof water bottle designed for travel.

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 Egyptian Mau Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Minimizing stress for your Egyptian Mau begins with familiarization sessions with their carrier well before the trip. Placing it in their favorite area with the door open, encouraging exploration and even feeding them inside helps establish a positive association. During the journey, covering the carrier with a light blanket can reduce visual stimuli, and using pheromone sprays or diffusers may further calm your cat.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Maintain your Egyptian Mau’s regular feeding schedule as closely as possible, offering small meals during travel to avoid upset stomachs. Compact, disposable litter boxes are ideal for travel, allowing for quick and sanitary maintenance. Plan regular breaks during the journey for your cat to use the litter box in a controlled, secure environment.

Climate and Comfort

Keeping the car interior cool and well-ventilated is essential, particularly for Egyptian Maus with their dense fur. Avoid direct sunlight on the carrier and never leave your cat in a parked car. Portable fans can help maintain a cool environment, and climate-controlled carriers are recommended for particularly sensitive cats or long journeys.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Egyptian Mau

Acclimating to New Spaces

Upon arrival, give your Egyptian Mau time to acclimate to their new surroundings at their own pace. Setting up a designated, quiet space with their bed, familiar toys, and regular items can ease this transition. Ensure their environment is secure to prevent escape attempts during this vulnerable period.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitor your Egyptian Mau closely for signs of stress or discomfort following the journey, such as refusal to eat or changes in behavior. A post-travel vet visit can help ensure they haven’t developed any health issues during transport and provide peace of mind about their well-being.

Maintaining Well-being

Keeping a consistent routine is key to your Egyptian Mau’s well-being in their new environment. Regular feeding times, grooming sessions, and play can help maintain their health and happiness. Be patient and provide lots of love and reassurance as they adjust to their new home.
