Dublin-bound American: Kerry

International Pet Moves January 23, 2017

Kerry, an American short hair cat, likes to be held and kissed in small doses. His pet parents, Margo and Tom Moran, adopted him from the Cleveland Animal Protective League six years ago. Now he’s a world traveler and champion magpie-watcher living the high life in Dublin, Ireland.

“Kerry loves to eat, so part of his diet is light food. He especially likes feather toys, chasing laser lights and ribbons,” says Tom who is an executive with an international power management company.

A colleague recommended Tom call Air Animal after he accepted a corporate relocation to Dublin. Air Animal moved his friend’s dog from California to Dublin. He also researched Air Animal with CARTUS which handles his company’s relocations.

“CARTUS was familiar with Air Animal and said some very good things about the service. I was a bit surprised about the complex process in moving a pet internationally. There are country regulations, airline requirements, packaging and labeling needs, veterinary needs and others. Air Animal did a great job helping us through each step of the processes. We chose the door-to-door service,” Tom recalled.

Tom’s main concern had been about winter weather delays because Kerry changed planes in Newark, NJ in February. His pet mover Evelyn allayed his concerns by explaining the procedure for redirecting pets when bad weather hits. The move went without a hitch and Kerry was delivered to the Moran’s apartment after a short veterinary stop near the airport.

“I firmly believe Kerry knew something about what was happening during the trip.  Being strictly an indoor kitty who has never been on a plane before, I am sure he was not particularly happy during the flights.  However, based on his calm demeanor upon arrival, I like to think that he knew he was just going through a location move, with the same parents on each end,” Tom said.

“He visited me, used the cat box, ate, crawled under a quilt on my bed, and slept nearly continuously for eighteen hours.”
