Exclamation Transport for Shadow (kitty)

Hello! We're looking for a transport from Spokane WA to Colorado. Boemy's kitty Shadow needs a new home, and my son wants a kitty...seems like fate.

I can definitely drive quite a bit, and am not objectionable to it. If we could get her as far as Wyoming I'd be more than willing to drive up there to get her.

The current idea is sometime in October, before the snow really gets going, it appears Boemy and I both have small cars that are not the best in snow (and seriously folks, I cannot drive very well in snow)

So any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

ETA: Looks like Salt Lake City would be a good place for me to pick up as well, and kind of a straight shot if we go from Spokane WA to Boise, ID, to SLC, UT...

Boemy, anything she needs for travel like a crate?
Maybe we could try Operation Roger (I thought it was only for dogs but appears that it works for kitties too) she'd need UTD shots and a health cert. but it's pretty cheap and saves trying to organize quite so much. That would also open it up to being much more flexible because those people can drive in snow, lol!

Small cars + snow = bad!

Shadow has a soft-sided crate, no problem there. She is UTD on shots . . . I will call my vet this week and see about getting her previous medical record sent to you or your vet. And getting a health certificate.

Also, I can't remember if she has a microchip or not . . . I think I did have her microchipped after I found her. I assume there's some way to change the info on there to your info . . .

I can drive quite a ways if necessary. On a weekend would be best for me so that I wouldn't miss classes. The truckers network sounds hopeful!

I think using the truckers is probably the most efficient and easy transport we'll be able to come up with. They charge $25 or so which is less than I'll pay for a tank of gas, even in my tiny car. It should work out pretty good considering she's coming from a larger city to a large city, and even at that if they can't bring her to Co. Springs I can always go up to Denver or wherever.

I don't have a local vet yet, I've been using a shot clinic for mine thus so far, so sending them to me is fine and when I choose a vet I can bring them in. I'll PM you my address, as we'll need it to fill out an application with Operation Roger. I think all they require is a health cert within the last 30 days, and if she gets here sooner, that's no problem either, I'm going to pick up kitty supplies on Monday.

If the trucker thing doesn't work out, let me know. I could do a couple hour stretch near SLC. Not more than that, I'm afraid, because I'm very allergic to cats, but I'm sure I'd be OK for a couple of hours with her in a crate or some other kind of carrier.

I just got an e-mail from the Operation Roger truckers that Shadow's application was approved and is now listed on their message board. Yay! I've got an exam scheduled for next week to get her health certificate.

Does anyone know how to change microchip information when you don't remember the microchip # of a pet? I found the vet receipt for it, but it didn't list the Avid number. I'm sure I got a brochure with it in it, but who knows where I put it!

When you take her to the vet, have them scan her for it, that should pull up the ID. That's what the local vet suggested to me about Jasper's chip (which I still haven't changed)

YAY! I saw her name on their board too

Well I got a call from Operation Roger, I'm going to have a bit of a drive north to pick Shadow up...but it's a more than just cause to do so. See they asked me if I'd have room to pick up a 12 year old blind Pekinese if they could get them to the same place...that needs to get to Denver.

Who am I to turn a dog down, especially when I have to drive through Denver on my way home!
So looks like I'll have a blind old dog and a cat, and 3 kids in the car...what a zoo!
