we got him when he was a kittne. he has been with us since then. he is well tempered and very pretty. he is very much my cat, my husband could careless about him and besides feeding him, shows him no love, my daughter prefers dogs and finds the cat boring so she never does much for him minus a hug every once in awhile when i say awww look at the kitty. we are moving to europe in a few months (army) and he is too big for carry on so we woul dhave to pay 575 for the temp. controlled animal cargo area....it will still be stressful for him. my mother and husband think its best for the cat that i find him a good home with a loving family that will all give him attention and spoil him instead of him living in our family with me being the only loving one and moving like this since we are military. my heart says keep him cause he's my kitty, my mind says maybe he would be happier elsewhere not moving around where they all love him.Answer Question

That is a tough one reading this sounds like me I would not know what to do either.
As much as you would love to take your cat with you he might not adjust very well at first especially if he is an older kitty now. X7 in human years. He'd probably freak during the flight and get sick as much as I would hate to say this keep him here where he is alot familiar with.
And yes find a good home for him that way you can move on and have no worry about him. Maybe you can keep tabs with the family who gets him. This is a sad situation, but it is so expensive and whose to say he will be happy with his new surroundings. GL

How big is your cat?? We just flew a Rottweiler puppy in cabin, under seat. He was 19 pounds and the rules for dogs are more stringent as the dog has to be able to stand without his head touching the top of carrier and he must be able to turn around. I would double check with the airline as I have never heard of a cat not being able to fly in cabin.

To bearsjen: It is not whether the animal is a cat or dog, it is whether the animal fits in the carrier required by the airline for travel under the seat of the owner. Yappy dog or not, if it fits the carrier it gets to ride in cabin.
