Has anyone done this? If so, what airline that flies there will allow the pet to go in the cabin. My mom doesn't want to ship her cargo, I don't blame her.

If you have done this, any regrets? How is your pet doing now? Can he/she handle the weather there? What do you do when you travel? Is there a pet sitting service there?

This cat is long hair.

I appreciate anything that is sent my way!

Hi Kathy, here's a couple recent experiences:
======
I've just been through moving animals here. Here's the # for the Belize Central Lab. 011-501-24-5230 "attn: Melissa" to apply for an import permit. Yes the vaccinations are the same. You will need to fax them:
1. importer and exporters name and address
2. animal type, name ,age, sex, and breed
3. Purpose, permanent, temporary
4. finally, zoo, house pet
5. country of origin
6. port of entry
7. by whom the request is made, signature, address, # to fax your permit to.
Then they'll fax you the import permit and the vat requirments. Hope this helps you. It took a couple of days for mine.
====================
Unless things have changed since Nov. of 1999, you don't have to have any special documents for domestic animals....ie: dogs and cats other than current complete vaccination records from a veteranarian and stamped by the USDA.
I took both my cats to the vet....got their vaccines.....the vet filled out a form for both cats.....and then I sent it to the nearest USDA for a stamp including a $16 US fee. The vet can provide you a contact address and telephone# for the USDA office nearest you. The vaccines need to be given within 6 months of your entering Belize.
I drove here from the states and the Mexican officials barely noticed I had 2 cats in a carrier.....let alone checking for documents.
At the border of Belize and Chetumal, They did check the documents....I paid a small fee and they stamped the document....but they never asked to see the cats. Go figure!
================

also, you can ask bronwen (bron67@hotmail.com) from the saga society (http://AmbergrisCaye.com/saga/)

she is a vet and has wide experience in this...
