Deb, I took my cat last year to Bahamas...never declared him, never got any Bahamas paperwork for him. No one ever asked. Rarely does anyone actually board your boat when you check in to the country, so don't fear that someone will find him during an inspection.

My cat has all his papers, and if I ever got asked, I was going to say that the permit was applied for. All the cruisers I talked to with cats said they never bothered with any paperwork. This assumes your cat will stay on board. Not sure what would happen if you had to take the cat to a vet over there.

I think they are more worried about dogs and animals that would go ashore, risking a spread of deceases; pets that stay on your boat don't seem to be an issue.

Doug

Smile cats on board

Thanks Doug for the info. I did call the agriculture department and they had just recieved my paper work so all is good. I know we have probably went overboard with the legal stuff for our cat. We did have agriculture on our boat in Mexico and Belize. Sometimes i think its just a social call. Deb
