    Bobco,
    I'll be in Seattle for work Sep 10-12...

    Will you have your bike unpacked by then?

    Wow, my studio apartment is gonna fill up really fast!

    @AFHokie, I'll be flying in Sept. 11 but won't arrive until late evening. Then, since the leasing office will already be closed, I will spend a night in a hotel near my apartment before entering my apartment on Sept. 12. My U-Box will also be arriving that day, so I don't know if I'll be able to unpack the bike until late in the day, plus I need to get supplies (groceries and cat supplies). If you're still in town on the evening of Sept. 12, I'm totally in!

    Cats can totally fly with you in the cabin as long as you get a carrier that fits under the seat. You do have to take them out of their carrier and carry them through the TSA checkpoint, which can lead to people giving you awkward looks. Not that I have experience with this or anything :-/

    Yep. I'm doing the JetBlue JetPaws program (I love the name!) https://www.jetblue.com/travel/pets/, so my feline friend will be in a carry-on pet carrier under the seat, absolutely miserable that she's stuck in a weird, new environment in a carrier. I was really worried about the prospect of having her in the cargo hold of each flight, so this option was a huge relief.

    Good. The temp and cabin pressure you both need.

    Nice. It was 45 years ago (oh crap, it's been THAT long?) our friend flew his cat from D.C. to Louisville. This was before anyone really worried about "just a pet" flying in cargo. We met Scamp at the airport and were pleasantly surprise he was still alive. It sure is good to have other options now.

    Too late now, since you've already signed up for the program, but...

    You could probably save some money by just doing a swap. Since cats are being euthanized everywhere, it's easy to do a net-zero swap. When you get there, go to the rescue center and take a cat that was likely to be euthanized. Before you leave, toss yours off the 14th St. Bridge or some other free way to rid yourself of it. Makes traveling cheaper and easier to not have to transport it across the country. One dead cat and one pet cat. Same way either way.

    It's kind of a short bridge and cats are good swimmers? Might not balance out.
