We are leaving Darwin Australia
in July and sailing through Timor-Leste, Indonesia
and then Thailand
. Motley, our ship's cat has been with the boat
all her life and we want to take her with us. Has anyone had any experience of sailing around these waters with a pet? I understand that Indo is OK so long as you have the shots etc, but Malaysia
needs the animal to be in the export country for six months. Seeing as we can only have the boat
in Indo for three months it gets tricky. Sail Indonesia
just say that other boats have sailed through with pets
and had no problems. I would hate to be put in a position where Motley has to be euthanased because we got it wrong. Don't even want to think about that one.
Any ideas anyone?
