Thanks for all your advice. I have never travelled with an animal before and I wanted some advice from people who have. As for why I would take him with me, I will be staying with my family for the five weeks in a nice big houss. I just want my cat to be well looked after and get the best care he can. He is a part of my family. I have been looking into all options, cat sitting, catteries and now travelling. So, again thank you for your comments and advice.
