I am looking for a small cat carrier for a kitten I rescued at La Ropa beach to send back to my daughter in Canada.

Soriana has them, as do all of the vets. They are inexpensive.

Thanks for the rescue!!!

Another cat lover here. Please think through the kitten's travel really carefully.

When you say "send it back to my daughter in Canada", I'm guessing you plan to fly the kitten several thousand miles. Will the kitten be in the cabin with a human companion? Or alone in the cargo hold? How many hours would it be in transit?

Depending on the age and health of the animal, even if the airline accepts it in cargo, the journey could be fatal for it. Unless it's in the cabin with a human watching over it, IMHO the kitten is better off staying in Zihua.

She’s only about 5 weeks old. A friend is taking her back with him and she can ride in the cabin under the seat I believe with Westjet. They arrive home same day. I’m doing this because I want her to have a good home. Mexicans love dogs but not too many love cats. I would like to keep her myself but pets are not allowed in our condo in Ixtapa. We plan to remain in Ixtapa for at least a year considering the situation in Canada and she would have a good home with us and we would take her back and forth with us. If I could find a fellow cat lover with a big heart I would gladly let them take her and pay all vet bills. Any ideas??55

I know your intentions are pure and I'm glad to hear the little one will be in good care with your friend. There are a number of regulations and forms to complete in order to import an animal into Canada. For example, if the kitten is less than three months old, you will need to provide proof of her age. Please also contact the airline at least 48 hours before the flight to make sure your friend will be allowed to transport her.

Here are the requirements for importing an animal into Canada and the forms you will need to complete prior to entering Canada.

At 5 weeks old , it should still be with Mama kitty or a mama cat.

Mama was killed by a dog. She is an orphan. Doing very well had her for a week. Big change. Eats everything and is very playful and loved Taking her to vet tomorrow for check. If I can’t send her to Canada we will try to keep her even though condo does not allow pets. Not sure what to do then. She’s so special and we want her to have a loving home.

Thank you so very much for caring and for what you are doing to find her a good home! A shame about your condo complex's rules.

Had this little guy to vet today. He currently is only 3 weeks old so we got him at 2 weeks. Amazing he survived. Totally healthy except for getting worm medication. He’s so much fun and a Joy to have in our life.

Good news. No need to find him a home in Canada as I found a loving home in Ixtapa. Couple were grieving the loss of putting their sick cat down 4 months ago and when they heard about Zihua it was instant love. He now has a great home with a loving couple. We saved his life and all turned out well. Sad is we became so attached to him but happiness is knowing he’s loved and taken care of in a good home Thanks all cat lovers

Thanks so much for all you did and those that adopted him!

We are still working for/with the kittens and momma cat for Amado the Coconut Monkey.

It's time to get mom spayed, and try to place these wonderfully cared for kittens.

Manana we are looking into a carrier just to use to take mom in to get her sterilized at SPAZ and bring her home in. Hopefully they will take the kittens too!

If anyone wants to help, please let us know.
