You guessed it - I'm considering adopting a kitty that is too far away to meet before I/we make the decision.
So I want to know from others who have done it - how did this process go for you???
I got Bellie and Jellie sight unseen the distance traveled wasnt to bad. that being said they were also itty bitty babbies that were than raised on the bottle. at the time it was just my Loki and My Dutchy. Loki hated them, Dutchy got motherly and did everything but nurse them. Loki eventually came around, and he is often spotted cuddling jellie and or bellie.
All of my persians were gotten with only seeing photos. And i dont know, how i KNew i just knew. something inside me told me I knew and they were mine and ment to be here. They fit in wonderfully while they pretty much keep together, they get along great with everyone else. And Ares, well we all know he was the light of my life.
The travel wasnt bad on them. My girls came all the way from CA (thank you Dragonpass as always) and had some sniffles a little bit, but they were fine. And settled in fine they came by plane.
My boy Ares came by Car, from KS and he did fine. My girls have also traveled by car MN to KS and back and did fine. a little stress panting but no ill effects.
Good luck with your possible new venture
