I think you can get the carriers or the information through the flight your taking....They are pretty specific on what carriers you can take from what I understand...Is Poppy coming tomorrow? Good news is Lola and her new friend will have time to get aquainted before you return home..

Wow! Expensive little farts, huh? :D But they are worth it! I must say I am very happy you are taking them home and not abandoning them like others would.
Too bad you can't stay in Canada. Isn't there anything else in another province? It sucks when they say you don't have enough education when you are at the peak!

Well i dont really want to live anywhere else... after 2 years maybe its time to go back home for while....

yeah... the costs are rising with each airline.. im lucky as my parents and aunt and sister are all chipping into the fees to take get them home... *guess what my birthday present is!*

it works out to be about 1000 for vaccines, blood tests, flying them home to London then we have to drive to Glasgow!!!

arent u a teacher duttypaws? or is onster confusing u with another member again...i would have thought masters would be more than enough :confused:

ouchies thats a bit steep to take them home eh. Is it 1200 just for taking them and u still have to pay for everything else? The vaccines and such? lol I guess i should save now for when Ill have to take Bunduk and Onnie back to egypt :eek:

Anyway, im sure everything will be fine and im a firm believer that everything always works out for the best..im sure ure UK furries will be glad to have u home :goodvibes:

That's so great you are taking them with you. I hope once you're home they get along with the gang over there.

yes I am but my credentials arent recognised in Quebec its a problem a lot of teacher friends have met coming here... Im a primary special Ed teacher in the uk (i mainly taught in sign langauge back in the UK)... but in Montreal I teach English as a 2nd Langauge....

im ok with moving home I think.... it means i will be making much better money as just now i barely make over $1000 a month!

duttypaws,so you are going home:sad:and from beeing a stray kitty,Lola will be a world-traveller:cat:
You have lots of time to get everything right as far as flying with them,it's about an 8 hour flight I think..right?
We won't lose you,you'll just be far away and hopefully we'll be hearing about all kinds of adventures with the kitties.
My husband was a teacher too,teaching French and German,with his credentials from France,not able to get a teaching-position here in Canada,luckily he got an excellent position at a big newspaper.
We packed everything up at one time and went back to Sweden,stayed only 2 yrs and where right back here..

Oh..Duttypaws...my ex was just telling me how hard it is to find a sign teacher for his school. He works for the LBPSB and is a highschool vice principal ( principal for 9-10 grade)....do you want me to see if he can do anything....they are really in need...kids are suffering and they are hiring outside of Quebec for teachers with great salary.Please pm me

Duttypaws - Do you want to stay? Cos' if you do you can appeal their decision. When we moved here (long time ago) they refused Hubby because he didn't have a profession per se. We appealed and we are still here. I missed Europe lots, but then started to appreciate the vastness of Canada.

Well, they say things happen for a reason. Maybe this is all a sign for you to go back home.
