Shipping Your Bengal Kitten
We ship most of our Bengal kittens by the airline. United Airlines changed their requirements in August 2018 making it difficult to use their services. Since then we have increased our business with American Airlines and Delta Airlines . These three services have temperature restrictions of 20-85 degrees. Your kitten will usually arrive in the evening and maybe very late if it is summer to avoid the heat. The pickup location will be the baggage claim or cargo office. Plan to arrive 30 minutes after landing to allow time for unloading. Check for delays on the final flight so you don’t show up too early.
I will supply all the information about the flights after booking. You will need your ID and airway bill number for pickup. The kittens are not traumatized by shipping so please don’t be concerned. I have never had a kitten injured by the shipping process. Upon arrival plan to open a can of food as they will be very hungry. If you have a long drive home bring a litter box in the car and put them in it. They will arrive in a hard-sided crate with hard kibble cat food. Be sure to check their paperwork for their health record. Before shipping the kitten will see the vet for a health certificate.
This will expire in 30 days so they will need to be shipped in this time frame. As soon as I have their schedule and reservation I will give you this information. You can track the kitten online using the airway bill number.
The shipping fee is currently $00 and will be more if the kitten has to go in a larger crate. The base fee of $50 is subject to change according to airline fees. The airfare by itself is $200 for the smallest crate with American Airlines. The extra expenses included in my fee are Health Certificate, gas for 3 hours driving to delivery company/airport, crate, and parking. If your kitten encounters delays or canceled flights the personnel are trained in caring for animals and boarding them. They also have a vet on staff at all times. Cargo may call you with updates. You are welcome to visit your kitten after six weeks of age by appointment . The kittens go home between 8-12 weeks of age .and you are welcome to pick them up at my home or for a fee we are willing to deliver.
