How-To: Move Home from Korea with a Pet

Posted on Tue, Jan 06, 2015 @ 10:30 AM

Last month, I posted about the (sometimes) grueling process of getting packed up to move home after your time in Korea. The stress of my move was greatly compounded by an additional factor: moving a Korean cat to the U.S. In the end, it went quite smoothly, with a lot of the stress stemming from the unknowns that come with flying with an animal. Since I'm sure some of you have gotten pets in Korea or are considering it, here's an overview of how to take your Korean cat home with you.

In several locations throughout Seoul, one can find dog cafés, cat cafes, and fish cafés. (or so I had been told). I decided to spend an afternoon investigating whether these pet cafes were real and to see if I enjoyed drinking a cup of coffee while a pack of dogs ran around my feet.
