Hi, I'm taking my cat with me on an airplane to Las Vegas. She'll be in the cabin under my seat.
I'm worried because the carrier I bought is two inches too tall and one inch too long for the airline requirements.. I know, sounds stupid, but it was the carrier that I saw recommended over and over again. And it's soft sided, so it can definitely squish a couple inches, but I'm still worried they won't let me board..
There was a smaller size that fit all the requirements, but I got the bigger (medium) size because I figured she'll be spending almost two hours in it, on the drive to/waiting in the airport, so I wanted her to be more comfortable for at least part of the day. Anyone have any experiences with this? Everyone keeps telling me the case will be fine, and the airline told me as long as it squishes under the seat it will be fine, but I'm still nervous. First time flying, much less with a pet = high anxiety!
