  • I've flown my cats on a three hour flight but that's it. Definitely not the best thing I've ever done. Scared them to death. well, almost.

  • I tried to get our cat shipped to us and I could not find one carrier that would do it. I ended up paying extra for the cat to travel with us on Delta Airlines.

  • I have flown with my Chi/Yorkie Mix alot of times but, only with her on the plane with me- i can't say that she loves it but, the vet gives her something to stay calm so, she does o.k.- Shipping a dog is really hard on them; they are in the cargo with all of the luggage- that is probably pretty scary- it is about 775 miles from Arkansas to North Carolina- i would ask the breeder what happens if they have a lay-over? i hope your puppies make it Safely!
