We found a kitten in Antigua
and brought here back to the boat. Long story, but biggest issue was getting her on the bus back to the Rio Dulce. Bus driver made us put here in a cardboard box under the bus and I had to roam the streets of Guatemala
City for a bodega with packing tape!
We had no issues in Columbia
as no officials went aboard (2005) or in San Blas. When we measured for the canal we took the cat to a friends boat during the appointment on the flats to avoid any hassles.
My wife flew back to the US with the cat from Tahiti
as NZ was going to be a major hassle. The only papers we had on the cat were from a Columbian vet and my wife was declaring like 12 countries since left the US, but nary a question. Airline form LAX to Michigan made here buy an FAA cat carrier in the airport
. Had flown air france
in a canvas
tote bag under the seat, but they did make here go thru the carry-on x-ray belt in tahiti
. She never went ashore at anytime between the Rio Dulce and Tahiti.
