What determines the cost of Scottish Fold shipping

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

Mode of transportation

ratingAir travel

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 Scottish Fold, 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 Scottish Fold 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 Scottish Fold: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

Scottish Fold cats are known for their unique, folded ears, giving them an owl-like appearance that captures the heart of anyone who meets them. This distinctive breed is also famous for its calm, gentle nature, and affectionate demeanor, making them perfect companions. When considering transportation, it is essential to keep in mind that their serene personality helps them adapt to new situations if they are made to feel secure and loved. However, their curious nature might prompt them to explore their travel environment, so secure containment is a must.

Size and Care Requirements

Scottish Folds are medium-sized cats, with their weight typically ranging between 6 to 13 pounds. They have a thick, dense coat that requires regular grooming to prevent matting and control shedding. During transport, ensuring their comfort aligns closely with maintaining a climate-controlled environment, as their coat provides them warmth. Special consideration should be paid to provide a comfortable carrier that allows for movement but also feels like a secure, cozy space for them.

Health and Safety Protocols

Prior to transportation, Scottish Fold cats need to undergo a thorough health check to ensure they are fit for travel. This breed can be prone to specific health issues such as cartilage-related anomalies due to their genetic mutation. Therefore, obtaining a health certificate and ensuring that their vaccinations are up-to-date is non-negotiable. Furthermore, implementing safety measures during transport, like secure and comfortable carriers, is essential to prevent stress and injury.

How to prepare your Scottish Fold 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

Preparation for transporting your Scottish Fold includes gathering all necessary medical documents and ensuring their vaccinations are current. Documents should include a recent health certificate from a veterinarian, vaccination records against common feline diseases, and any specific medical requirements or medications your cat may have. This preparation is crucial for cross-state travels or when required by transport regulations.

Identification and Security

Proper identification is vital for the safety of your Scottish Fold during transport. Ensure your feline friend has a well-fitted collar with an ID tag displaying your contact information. For additional security, consider microchipping; this simple procedure offers a permanent method of identification that could reunite you with your pet if they become lost.

Travel Comforts for Scottish Fold

To ease the journey for your Scottish Fold, include items in their carrier that smell like home, such as familiar bedding or a favored toy. These items provide comfort and reduce travel anxiety. Also, ensure the carrier is spacious enough for them to stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably, which is crucial for their physical and emotional well-being during the journey.

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 Scottish Fold Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Reducing stress for your Scottish Fold cat during transportation can be achieved by creating a familiar and comfortable environment within their carrier. Consider using pheromone sprays or a calming blanket to help soothe them. Additionally, maintain a calm demeanor yourself, as pets often mirror their owner's emotions, and a relaxed owner can lead to a relaxed pet.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

When traveling, maintain your Scottish Fold's regular feeding schedule as much as possible but avoid feeding them right before the journey to prevent motion sickness. Portable litter boxes are available and should be introduced to your cat before the trip to ensure they are comfortable using them. Keep water available at all times to ensure hydration, especially during long trips.

Climate and Comfort

Scottish Folds are adaptable to various climates, but ensuring a comfortable temperature within their travel environment is critical. Avoid placing their carrier in direct sunlight or overly cold areas. The carrier should be well-ventilated, allowing for constant air flow but without causing drafts, to keep your cat comfortable throughout the journey.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Scottish Fold

Acclimating to New Spaces

Once you've reached your destination, give your Scottish Fold time to adjust to their new surroundings. This process may include exploring at their own pace under your supervision, gradually introducing them to new spaces within the home. Creating similar setups to their old environment, like their sleeping and feeding areas, can also aid in this transition.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitoring your Scottish Fold's health after the journey is essential. Look for signs of stress, such as changes in eating habits or behavior. Any concern should prompt a visit to the veterinarian to ensure that any travel-related stress or conditions are promptly addressed.

Maintaining Well-being

Keeping a consistent routine is key to your Scottish Fold's well-being in a new environment. This includes regular feeding times, play, and companionship. Gradually, with patience and love, your Scottish Fold will adapt to their new home, continuing to thrive and bringing joy to your family.
