|I work for a major international airline and also am the guardian of 13 cats. Here's my advice: bring the cats on the plane with you. Do not check them. I worked at JFK in New York and had to look for cats that escaped.
Here is the stuff you will need:
*2 soft-side carriers
*food for the trip (even though they will probably be too stressed and perturbed to eat)
*a small disposable litter box with litter (in case you end up in a hotel mid-trip unexpectedly)
*a small spray bottle of enzyme cleaner (3 ounces or less; the best way to accomplish this is to transfer some from a larger bottle into a smaller one because they don't sell 3 oz. sizes) in case they pee in the carrier. You can spray it on immediately upon the cat peeing.
*extra towels for lining the carrier
*nylon harnesses. These are invaluable for getting the cats through airport security.
