Aw. Poor kitty but so excited for you that plans are in motion!!!

My ILs drove with two older kittes almost 2 hours from NY State to GA and the local head of the SPCA told them of this “perfume” product that you spray that puts them at complete calm. It worked like a charm! Those two are usually very whiny kitties. If your kitty is going in the underbelly I know there’s a pill they can give you for having them take a long nap?

Have you checked the regulations from the UK and USA side?

This site has some great info!

I’m going through the same process right now, except with Hawaii.  I’m thinking of hiring a “pet moving” company to help me out with the little details, because there sure are a lot of them!  Plus I like their guarantee that if something goes wrong on their end and my dog ends up in quarantine, they’ll take care of all of the additional fees 🙂

I have heard though that you shouldn’t do anything to sedate your pet if they’re flying cargo mainly because if they have any kind of bad side effects to the medication, no one will know until the plane lands.

If you are worried about flying, you could look at taking the Queen Mary 2 to England. They have a special kennel area for pets (it’s limited space), and you can visit with them during your trip.
