Ep. 71 Flying With A Cat Long Distance | Ft. The Voicechovski's
Today on episode 71 you will be hearing from us, The V’s about traveling across the globe with our cat!
Marc and I are proud parents of our beloved fur baby, Tito Cat.
To be honest with you, we never saw ourselves to be cat people. Dogs all day was our motto. That was until an itty bitty kitten found us. They say cats choose you and this little guy sure did. We were on our way out to dinner when we found a little orange tabby run into our basement. My heart exploded and welp, here he is all the way from New Jersey to Vietnam.
We are believers that if you sign up in being a pet parent then you sign up to take care of them for their life. They become your child just like a human would. So the thought of accepting an opportunity across the globe meant that we had to get our beloved Tito there too.
Was this the most stressful part of our move? It sure was!
We were getting him there safe and sound in the most humane way possible because our baby burrito deserves the best.
But that idea took a lot of prep and I’m happy to share it with you. By all means we are not pet professionals, but I’m proud to say my cat is here with me and has continued to be his normal snarky-self. Phew!
