It turned out, the feeling was not mutual. But more on that in a minute.

Moving with a Cat in Korea

If anyone has experience with traveling with their pet in Korea I would love any information you have. Are cats allowed on the train or bus (in a carrier)? Also what is the police on the subway? If so do you need to do anything special? Do you get a lot of weird looks?
