Hi, this is my cat rupert. I'm planning to travel with him from Europe to America. I wasn't sure if cabin or cargo hold is the best.

Does anyone have experience with bringing a cat to US from europe

    I have done this.
    Used the cargo hold with nice little crate.
    All went well.
    Weather matters though.

    Put him in cabin!!! Cats put in cargo can die. Check out the airlines that allow cats in the cabin.

      I have the opposite experience—moved with two cats from US to Europe. Used the hold in this case but I have previously flown (US domestic) with a cat in the cabin, as well.

      Either is OK; cabin would have been a bit tricky for me last time because you have to take the cats out of their carrier(s) and walk through the metal detector with the cats in your arms while the empty carrier goes through the X-ray. I can imagine that being difficult with two. But with a single catto I think it would be my first choice.

      Lufthansa has a good cabin pet policy; some airlines severely restrict the number of animals allowed on board as far as I recall.

      Ugh if an animal were in the cabin with me, I’d literally get up and punch the owner in the face. Keep your disgusting little mongrels in the hold.

        Your hatred of pets is so severe that it's worth getting arrested for on landing? Weird hill to die on, IMO.

        Don't risk putting him in the hold, there's a small but real chance he'll be a block of ice
        Just stick him in the cabin

        No you wouldn't, you'd sit in your seat and stay quiet like the meek little virgin you are

          it's a myth anon
          the hold of an airliner is climate controlled and is usually about 15 celsius, maybe a bit colder, but if they know there are live animals on board they keep the temperature up a bit

            Yeah but the climate control isn't 100% fail proof, in the event that it does fail, and it has in the past, rupert is a goner

    Brought my cat from the US to EU with me and then he’s coming to Japan with me eventually. You gotta get some forms filled out and authorized by USDA APHIS (google eu pet health certificate).
    I assume it’s similar for the reverse. Check out the APHIS website.
    Go through the steps and you’ll be able to bring him. I’m glad I brought mine. Some airlines like Delta let you bring them in cabin but they have quotas per flight so you’ll have to book the flight and then call in. Or vice versa. I think it was $200 international to bring him with me on Delta. There are companies that make specific airline regulated pet carriers made to fit under the seat in front of you. I wouldn’t do cargo, especially for long flights, animals have and do die down there. The airlines claim it’s safe but it still happens, also imagine being locked in a dark weirdly pressurized area with all kinds of unfamiliar loud noises. I don’t think my cat would enjoy it nor would I risk his life to save a couple hundred dollars.
    Japan requires their own specific form and I had to have rabies testing done 6 months in advance. Not sure if the US will require this, but you will definitely have to have him up to date on rabies vaccinations. The certificate process is basically just endorse/prove that your pet is 100% rabies free.
    I won’t lie it’s a lot harder traveling with a pet, you have to make sure they’re cozy every place you move but if you’re just coming to the US and staying in one place it isn’t bad. But there are times I wish I didn’t bring mine as it’s hard to just fuck off for weeks or take trains between countries, things like that. I guess you won’t have to worry about trains much in burger land, but just be aware it is kind of a pain at times. But overall worth having my lil homie with me, especially now during the holidays that I’m spending all alone away from family.
