Hello, If you are interested in any of our British Shorthairs on our website and live too far to drive down and pick up the kitten in person, then we can make the arrangements for you to have your kitten on a next or same day delivery. The kitten will be shipped to the closest airport near you or hand delivered to your home. Delivery prices are per county, region or country. In most cases the kittens will arrive within 4-8 hours within the UK and 72 hours max international delivery from the departure time. However, sometimes delays do occur due to weather or kitten checking, so check the flight with the airline before you leave your home to go to the airport.

Safe and Comfortable Shipping process

British Shorthairs aren’t vases or art supplies, so when you hear that he or she can be shipped to you, your first reaction is probably shock. Before you panic, get that picture of cardboard boxes and foam peanuts out of your mind! Shipping British Shorthairs is usually quite safe and any airlines or trucking companies that take live animals have procedures in place to be sure they arrive in good health. 

Airlines will either ship Shorthair in the cargo compartment which sounds a bit callous and scary, but is actually fairly safe and comfortable for the British Shorthairs, especially if there is no need for a layover or cargo transfer or the British Shorthairs to be stowed under the passenger’s seat in lieu of carry on luggage. This is probably the safest mode of air travel.

We always give all our British Shorthairs a Bordetella vaccine prior to shipping to avoid the chances of other pets infecting them.
