Wow! I didn't log in for a couple days and missed all the replies!
It seems we have everything in line as much as we can now. We have our licenses from Taiwan to bring in the cats. Unfortunately, we are coming through Taipei. If I had heard about the Kaohsiung thing earlier I might have changed our plans. But hopefully all will go as well as it can go! Their vaccinations are in order, the paperwork is complete, and the licenses granted. We're not exactly sure how it works though. I guess we're supposed to clear customs in Taipei with the cats, and then somehow they will go to quarantine, but we're not quite sure how that will happen. We have requested that they go to Taichung, but I'm not sure that will happen either.
We're leaving on the 16th, arriving Taipei the night of the 17th, and then, if all goes well, heading down to Taichung on the 18th. It's going to be a rocky road, I'm sure, but I'm also confident all will be well in the end. We are planning on going to see them every day, for their sake, as well as ours. I suspect the risk of their quarantine being extended is lower if the owners show their dedication to the kitties.
We are planning on being in Taiwan for 2 years, if not longer. I know the quarantine part is horrible on the way in to Taiwan, but if worse comes to worst, going home is easy.
I'll let you all know how it goes once it's over!
