    How to break the news

    Thanks guys. They know we were looking into it. I think that it's not going to be as bad as I think it will be. I was out in Australia for two years straight after university and also lived in Italy for a year, so they're used to me not being around all the time.

    I wasn't sure where to post this, so apologies if this is not the right place. Our visas have been approved and it's definitely happening. How do I tell my family??

    Pet relocation services

    I feel for you..the thought of me leaving the cat behind makes me so sad but everyone in Australia seems to hate cats, I don't know what to do. What did you decide on?

    VIT registration

    Hi Does anyone have any experience of the VIT registration process? It seems to be quite a long form to complete yet there doesn't seem to be any way to save the form to come back to at a later date. Am I missing something?!

    Cats in Australia (wildlife)

    I have been researching cat containment systems today. Does anyone have any experience of the Oscillot systems? They seem like the best one that isn't just like a big cage.

    Cats in Australia (wildlife)

    Thanks everyone, we are looking at moving to Victoria- the Melbourne suburbs or Geelong area. He is microchipped and neutered but doesn't wear a collar. I'll look into the councils rules on cats once we've decided for sure where to live and look into cat runs and fences.

    Teachers Moving or Living in Australia

    We started ours in June I think, at the end of August we were asked to submit more information which we did by the end of September. Visa approved on Tuesday!

    Teachers Moving or Living in Australia

    Just got visas approved! My partner got the skilled migrant visa and I’m going in as his partner. I’m a primary school teacher looking to move to Victoria (Melbourne suburbs or Geelong area). Are there any other teachers in that area on here? I’ve just started looking into registering to teach in Victoria which seems to be a long process!

    Cane Toads and Pets

    Are cane toads as deadly for cats?

    Cats in Australia (wildlife)

    Hi We just got our permanent visas approved so now it’s very real! I’m really upset at the thought of leaving my cat behind when we go, I’ve looked into various companies to help with the move and waiting for a few quotes. But I’m concerned about the wildlife-cane toads, snakes, poisonous spiders etc. He is currently my spider catcher and does like to bring in a mouse or two, I’m concerned he might try to catch something that will end up killing him as he’s grown up being able to catch anything. Does anyone have experience of moving with a cat (particularly one which likes to have freedom outdoors) and if there has been any issues with wildlife?
