What Documents For A Cat Travelling From Italy Into The Us?

Recommended Posts

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?

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.
