|Definitley do not give a sedative if travling cargo, as the animals have a difficult time w/ temp. regulation while on sedatives. As far as food and water, I would not leave food in the carrier, as they will probably not eat anyway, due to the stress, but leave some attached to the carrier, so they can be fed on layover. Water will spill in the carrier, so leaving a bowl out is not an option, however, you can get them trained on how to use a rabbit/rodent water bottle, as then they would have access to the water, but small amts and it won't spill. Definitley use wee pads in the carrier, as if they have to urinate, the pads will hold in the moisture. The last thing you want is the cats to have to sit in a wet box for 15 hrs. We just moved and it was a 2 day trip in the car. I didn't eat the morning we left, go a small meal that night at the hotel. Urinated 1 time in the hotel and did not defecate once. If you decrease the food, chances for stool are also decreased.
Definitely get a health certificate, as it's needed for flying. Double check w/ your airline as to the time frame. Some airlines say w/in 30 days of travel others say w/in 10 days. Verify w/ the S. Korean consulate to make sure you have all necessary documentation to bring kitties into the country.
