Hi everyone! I live in the UK and I got my Bengal kitty (Shaki) in the UK also. I bought her as a domestic pet a couple of years ago. I decided to move back to Russia, and then to Canada. I was advised that in order for me to travel with Shaki I would require a pedigree certificate proving that my cat is F5 Bengal. I have a copy of my cat's mother’s TICA certificate and a copy of a sales receipt indicating my cat’s microchip and that the mother cat's owner was also the seller. I also have my cat’s first vet’s certificate of vaccination that shows my cat’s microchip number and previous owner’s details. I only have a name of Shaki’s father as the previous owners are not in touch with the owners of my cat’s father anymore. To the best of my knowledge he is also a pedigree F5 Bengal cat. Shaki is from an unregistered litter and was sold to me under condition of never using her for breeding. She is currently neutered. Can someone, please, please, please, advise how to act in such situation as I cannot move back to Russia without my cat?
I have come across this often but I suppose this calls for another reminder to make sure that your house/garden is secure. Even installing dummy CCTV cameras would deter them. HIGH-priced, popular pedigree pets are falling victim to dog and cat thieves stealing specific breeds to order. Blue staffordshire terriers and French bulldogs are among the most sought-after and expensive purebred canines on the market, and publicity surrounding the theft of at least one of them has struck fear into owners. But the disappearance of four pedigree ragdoll cats from a country town has also alerted police to a possible black market purebred pet theft racket. Cobden police Sgt Heather Morris said the four cats had vanished from four separate homes in a fortnight. "They are a popular breed and you'd think the cats have gone missing to meet demand," Sgt Morris said. Essendon footballer Michael Hibberd has mounted a Facebook page to try to find "best mate" Koota, a $2000 blue staffie stolen on September 26 from behind a locked fence at his Maribyrnong home. More than 6000 people have signed on, some raising anecdotal cases of pedigree pet thefts. Hibberd is in no doubt his dog was stolen. Lort Smith Animal Hospital shelter manager Liz Walker confirmed a second expensive blue staffie was stolen from the same suburb the same day. Hibberd was out looking for Koota and met a neighbour whose French bulldog was stolen about the same time. Hibberd said a second dog, labrador Charlie, was left at his house. The Bomber rookie said he had "shed many tears" since the microchipped mutt vanished. Because of his "blue" colouring, the pup was named after Carlton champion Anthony Koutoufides, with whom Hibberd shares the playing number 43. "He went absolutely everywhere with me, except that day when I went to lunch and didn't want to leave him in the car," Hibberd said. The RSPCA does not investigate pet thefts. Lost Dogs' Home general manager Sue Conroy said she "wouldn't be surprised" if there were pockets of Victoria where unscrupulous people might recognise the monetary value of certain breeds.
