I have a cat and a dog.

They are currently in Seattle. I am currently in Los Angeles.

They have been staying with someone who was going to take care of them for a few months until I was in permanent residence here in L.A. Unfortunately, this person has to move unexpectedly and can't take care of them past June 1st.

I may be able to take them both depending on what I can swing but don't know much of anything about air shipping cats and dogs. If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know. The concern is especially for the cat as he is old, and HATES to travel. The plan was to at some point leisurely drive at least the dog back here at some point and possibly the cat so I could keep an eye on them, or if he (the cat) was particularly comfortable where he was, allow him to stay. I know my dog doesn't mind car trips. But unfortunately, the deadline has been moved up and that's not currently possible.

I know there are enough places to bum around LA with my dog, but constant travel with dog and cat could be an issue.

If anyone can temporarily house either of these animals (possibly permanently the cat), please let me know immediately.

I am in the process of moving and best way to reach me is via email or myspace or Live Journal.

The animals in question:

Jasmine - 3 years old - Black Lab/Sharpei mix. Very exuberant and a bit of a spazz, but a lovable spazz. Will chase cats, but won't hurt them, loves playing with other dogs, but sometimes plays rough. She does have a weak bladder if terribly excited. Allergic to fleas, needs to be kept up on with the frontline treatments, or her hair falls out where a flea bites her. She loves to snuggle, run, play fetch, do all those crazy things dogs like to do.

Henry - 10 or 11 years old - 6 toed maine coon, declawed (I didn't do it, his previous owners did), cranky bastard, but also quite lovable, very vocal, and full of personality. Tolerates dogs, even likes some of them. Don't know how he is with other cats, he is declawed and DOES NOT go outside. He is highly intelligent, an attention monger and is box trained, although because of his paws, he has to use litter box sand, not the rocks.

So please, if you can temporarily provide care or have information from personal experience on pet travel, let me know ASAP.

I'm having a flame war with my neice in Anchorage, Alaska via Myspace over my bulletin posting asking for help with Jasmine and Henry. It started with her sending a message stating, "Way to keep up this pathetic string of irresponsible acts.", me saying "way to be a judgemental bitch" and her then going off about shit that hasn't been current in years and telling me 98% of the family doesn't want anything to do with me and my son doesn't want to hear my excuses, and how dare I ask for help and why don't I just give my animals away. And I just sent another response telling her to take her high and mighty attitude based on information she doesn't have and stick it. Along with telling her not to speak for my son, or the half of the family I still speak to and keep in touch with regularly.
