We got here on December 3rd. The move from Japan to Mexico went very well without any hitches. Considering how shy Sputnik is, she has adjusted well and quickly.
How did we get here?
I flew on United Airlines from Japan to the U.S and from the U.S. to Mexico on American Airlines. Both airlines allowed Sputnik to come with me as my carry-on luggage, and both were very accommodating. I was glad to have Sputnik with me at all times.
Immigration with a cat at the airport in Mexico:
Although I had all my paperwork, when I mentioned to the Mexican Immigration that I had a cat and the proper paperwork, they didn’t ask to see either and just motioned for me to push the button. If I had gotten a red light, everything in my possession would have been inspected. I got the green light and was able to go through without any inspection or further questions. What luck! Getting through was a piece of cake.
I will be blogging more regularly from here on.
