Yet another cat thread, I know...

I received a kitty for my 30th birthday - a bright, tiny, redhead (like her owner) I called John Keats.

However, the gift was received in Italy, and I need to import it into NYC. It is currently at my parents' back home, undergoing all due vaccinations and stuff.

What documents/vaccines does a cat need to enter the US? Anyone has experience of travelling from abroad with cats? If I look at the custom regulations they only say they inspect the cat upon arrival, but that seems a bit, uh, odd. There must be some specific regulation that I can't find. Any ideas?

Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.
Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.
Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.
No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.
Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

My body is trying to kill me.

Probably just papers showing the kitty has had vacinations. My in-laws took a dog to Germany and brought her back. They didn't need anything special. Might check with the airlines, they usually know. The vet may have access to the rules, too.
