    Bringing Cat into Brisbane Area

    Hi Marisa Thanks for your reply & advice. I totally agree it's cats natural instincts to hunt which can't be stopped but I always ensure my cat is on at night & he always had a collar with a bell on it. I'm hoping he will be fine because i don't really want to have to confine him to an outdoor cage type thing. He never goes super far, Just like neighbouring gardens etc. It's my future planning, my partner is Australian & he wants to move back there in the future, I'm finishing off my nursing degree then will work here for a little while & then hopefully emigrate. So it'll probably be around 2021 or 22. Heading out for a holiday next year to get a feel for it, rather excited.

    Thank you, this is fab. just trying to weigh everything up as its all the little things isn't it. How have people found vet bills out there? more than the UK or less?

    Bringing Cat into Brisbane Area

    Thank you for the advice, he's a pretty obedient cat, I never let him out when it's dark here at all, so he's in most of winter, and only gets let out when I'm at home anyway. People must surely let their cats out though? I mean I'm sure it differs from area to area due to rules etc and wildlife? Yeah he's not a hunter, he's far too dopey and has grown up my house with guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes, geckos, turtles etc. He just likes to laze in the sun and go to the toilet outside. Thanks for the link will look into that. I won't be emigrating until around 2021, so just trying to build up a picture in my head and plan.

    Bringing Cat into Brisbane Area

    Hi All I'm new to this site and this is my first post, I've scrolled through some of the previous posts about cats, and gained some information, but I've still got some questions if anyone knows the answers or could advise that would be greatly appreciated. I have a male neutered Persian cat, who is almost 6 years old, he is indoors approximately 70% of the time and outdoors the rest but he doesn't go very far and always checks back every half hour to an hour. He's a giant softie and isn't confrontational towards other cats, or animals (he likes to relax with my rabbits). He is on a special diet (Royal Canin) for urinary problems, which is managed fine with diet. I was wondering if people have taken their cats to the Brisbane area, I'll be looking at the suburban area's not city. and how their cats have adapted, do you let them out? I've heard various things and I'm not sure what to believe, one side of people say "oh no you cannot let them out, because of snakes, spiders, ticks etc", and the others say " yes its fine mine lived to ripe old age etc." Also wondering if anyone else's cat has a special diet? as I've read you cannot bring food due to the laws etc. So was worrying about sourcing suitable food. Which transport companies would you recommend? And do you pick your pets up at Melbourne and then fly with them to Brisbane or just meet them at Brisbane after the quarantine period? Many Thanks
