My family and I are all set to relocate to melbourne in jan 04 but one loose thred we have left to tie is which people to use for importing our two cats and was hoping if anyone had any recommendations as they are so special we want to make sure they get looked after :) and no indicator is better than word of mouth

thanks graham

Sorry Graham, I know of no-one who has brought pets into Aus, so I cannot give you any recommendations. Apart from the transportation costs, vets fees for medical checks and necessary paperwork etc, there are also the quarantine costs on top, so it works out to be quite a costly excercise in all. I'm not implying that your cats aren't worth it, you understand, far from it. I did find this site, which explains all the ins and outs, if you don't already know them, and let me know if I can help you further.

Best Wishes for the move.

I brought my cat to Sydney, Australia about 10 weeks ago. It cost around £1,500 total. I used who provided a brilliant service. Expect your pet to be in quarantine for 30 days once it arrives in Australia too.

I can vouch for Export-A-Pet...they are very reliable and efficient.
