airplanes these days If you are planning on taking your cat with you on your next plane trip here are some helpful hints First of all check with the airline before making reservatioijs to find out their regula tions regarding cats They may differ slightly from company to company You might be able to put your cat in a carrier under your seat but even if he is to travel in the pressurized luggage compartment you will need to reserve a place for him Try a nonstop flight or at least a direct flight because there is less chance of a mixup if you doni have to change planes It is also rec ommended that you insure your cat especially if you are not accompanying him it increases the chances that he will be well looked after As a final note check with your veterinarian well in advance of the planned trip to determine health cer tificate requirements made by the state of country of destination Pet Talk is provided by the Comal County Veterinary Medical Associa Wayne Effenberger
