Moving is not a reason to leave pets
Once the family moved from Kazakhstan to Russia. The path is not short, but everything was complicated by the presence of animals - a dog and a cat. Moreover, the cat at that time turned 20 years old, which imposed its limitations.
They thought over various options for a long time and decided not to take risks with air travel, but to go by train, although the journey took three days. The option to leave pets was not considered, because they are also full members of the family.
First, I had to buy the entire minibus in order to travel 400 kilometers from Kazakhstan to Omsk, where I spent the night in a hotel (of course, with animals), and then three days by train to Rostov-on-Don, having bought the whole compartment.
The dog, of course, was worried, but behaved with dignity, but the elderly cat felt more comfortable than anyone.
Everything ended happily, everyone settled in a new place and are now happy.
Do not be afraid of the difficulties associated with animals. After all, if you truly love them, everything is surmountable!
