Read this article, submitted by a cat lover, on Travelling With Your Cat:
Taking your pet with you if you are going on holiday or moving abroad for a while can be a stressful time because there are a lot of things that you need to do. Getting them organised is a lot more complicated than most think. This is especially the case if you are moving to another country. Also, one thing to remember is that sometimes you may not be able to get the food and tastes that you are used to in your native country. This may mean that your pet is now subject to a change of diet and this may cause them to feel uncomfortable and displaced.
Thus, after you have sorted out your move it is important to consider what type of food you are going to give them. One of the best places to ensure that your cat has the same quality of food that they are used to is to go onto the Internet. You find that a lot of companies are willing to ship worldwide and to most regions. This means that if you move to a new area and the local pet store does not supply your brand then you can still give your cat what he/she is used to.
However, if you are looking to change your pet’s diet then here are some popular brands that can be found online that will give your cat the nutrition it needs.
Firstly, there is cat food by iams; they provide a variety of cat foods and are most popular for their dry range. You will also find that they use whole grain wheat in their products so it is high in fibre and good for you cat’s bowels.
is another high standard natural cat food that has a range that is suited for animals of different ages. It is very easy to use and it comes in a range of flavours that cats seem to enjoy.
The difference here is that the pouches are mostly wet and contain a variety of meats and fishes.
If you need to give your pet certain nutrients because they either have a long fur coat or are suffering from a deficiency of some sort, then cat food by Royal Canin is going to be the answer. They have one of the widest ranges of specialist foods available and they will make your pet feel at home wherever you travel to.
All of the above foods can be bought online so it is easy for you to find. They are also cheaper than in retail stores so you can make a good saving and also feed your cat the nutrients it craves.

Are you FED UP???
If so, read these tips on how to prevent your dog from eating up your cat’s food.
How to Keep your Dog out of your Cat’s Food Dish!
Get a square cardboard box from a local supermarket or book shop. The size of the cardboard box depends on the size of your cat: If your cat is a big maine coon cat for example, then it would be best to get a big sized box in which your cat could comfortably fit. However, if you have a small cat, you needn’t get a such a big box.
Place the opening of the box upside down onto the floor where your cat normally eats.
Cut a small flap hole into one of the sides of the box just big enough for your cat to squeeze through. Make sure that there is no chance that your dog could fit even just his head through it.
Place your cat’s food dish inside of the cardboard box.
To make sure that the box won’t tip over or be knocked over by your dog, place some heavy books or stones on top of it.
Stand back and see the affect!
TIP: If this doesn’t work, then try feeding your cat and dog in different rooms with the doors shut between them so that the dog won’t be able to get at your cat’s food dish.
