Re: Cat adoption to uk

There is a Fethiye expat page on Facebook, I am pretty sure you will find some good response.

I once traveled with our cat from Istanbul to Amsterdam, he came on a holiday with us so also came back to Turkey. Be sure to make very good arrangements with whoever you fly with, but then things might work out different. We were told the cat could come for free if it was in a carrier as hand luggage. Once at the airport checking in we paid more for the cat for for ourselves.

I would second the idea to fly from Antalya, and take a direct flight.

You want to adopt a cat in UK, or transport a cat to UK?

Re: Cat adoption to uk

Sorry, reading back I realise original post wasn't very clear (it was a late night &#128522. My aunt is interested in adopting a Turkish street cat and getting it transported back to the uk. Obviously not within the time frame that we would be returning from holiday so would need a charity/ contact number of someone at this end to
1. See if it's legal/ feasible and
2. Sort out all the admin.
Thanks

Re: Cat adoption to uk

Sometimes I guess certain animals just click. It is a lovely cat though, very sweet natured. I volunteer for Cats Protection in the UK, fostering cats in our home until they are rehomed permanently so it's not like she wouldn't have plenty choice

Maybe you could get in contact with Phil Johns, who is a member of this forum. He collects from Turkey and delivers to UK.

Re: Cat adoption to uk

Yes you can adopt a street cat from Turkey.

The whole process takes around 4 months. That's for:

Microchip
Rabies vaccination
Flu vaccinations

Then a blood test taken around 30 or 90 days(I can't remember exactly) after the Rabies vaccination jab. This is a blood titer test to confirm the Rabies vaccination is working.

Just before the cat travels, she will need to be taken to the government health vet who will check the microchip, paperwork and stamp some legal paperwork that you must have. Your Turkish vet should accompany you for this.

The above costs around 170-200.

Then there is getting the cat to the UK. Paws Bulgaria are excellent and I cannot recommend them enough. Not sure how much they charge for a cat. 800 or so for a dog. Do NOT use pet chauffeurs from Eastbourne. Avoid Keith Hill and Christopher Hawkins. They will let you down badly.

In summer you can fly from Antalya to Amsterdam, cheap flight. Cat costs nothing if small enough to go in cabin or around 75 if going in the hold. That's with Sun Express Airlines. You would then have to get someone to meet you at Amsterdam airport for the journey back to the UK. So factor in those costs.

I personally drove back from Turkey with my rescue cat. All the paperwork was done and nobody from my apartment in Turkey to the farm in the UK asked to look at the paperwork once. Even when they saw the three cats I had in the car. I could of smuggled any cat back but I don't recommend it.

Unfortunately the Turkish cat we rescued, who was dying in Turkey where he was and we nursed back to health was run over and killed within 4 days of being in the UK. Half a mile away from home. On the only road. We were and still are devastated. Still we gave him a year of life he would have never had.

As great an idea it is to rescue a Turkish cat, and I commend you for considering it. There are many cats in the UK who need a home just as much and would be just as loving. The whole process would cost anything between 500-1,200. The highest cost is the animals travel to the UK. This is where you can lose/save money.

Good luck
