Oman: digital cats

This week the three cats have had hardware and firmware installations. These activities form part of a mind-blowingly expensive series of events that will lead to their departure in a few months, including:

Veterinary consultations.
Microchips.
Vaccinations: Rabies boosters, cat flu (2 sorts) and enteritis (2 sorts).
Sky kennels.
Rabies blood tests (80 bloody rials each?).
Import licences.
Export licence/government veterinary health checks.
Shipping agent’s fees.
Aircraft flights.
Transport from airport to quarantine station.
Veterinary examinations on arrival.
Additional rabies and Chlamydia vaccinations on arrival.
Quarantine.
More to follow..........
