Expat in Germany: Relocating Pets to Germany

Relocating Pets to Germany

Last night I went to bed with a huge grin on my face after relocating my pets (2 cats) to Germany.  After much paperwork, 8 different counters at the Frankfurt Airport and several hundred Euro later (plus the vet exams in Canada and the airfare), they had finally arrived and I'm happy to say have settled in nicely and are back in the routine of requiring the kind of attention that only cats can.   Although relocating pets is expensive and a lot of paperwork, I could not imagine living as an expat in Germany without them.  Apparently I am not the only one who fills this way since we were told that 15,000 cats and dogs, 1500 horses and too many fish to count  pass through the Frankfurt Animal Lounge every year.

What was it like in Frankfurt with the kitties, if you don't mind me asking. I'm leaving with my 3 kitties for Germany in about 2 weeks and am wondering what happens when I get there. You're kitties are adorable btw!

It's very confusing. It took us over 2 hours and we went to several different buildings and paid ~300 eu. I was fortunate to have a German with me as I'm not sure if everyone speaks English (perhaps they do, just not sure). Customs was the most challenging so be sure to have paperwork regarding your residence permit, visa/stamp for extended time period (i.e. work contract, etc.) and if you're renting proof that your landlord/accomodations allows you to have pets. We had all these and had no problems, but they did have quite a few questions for us. Good luck. Hope it goes well. Hopefully your kitties will adjust quickly. Mine didn't seem to have jetlag at all.
