Crossing USA Border in my 2017 - 31' Winnebago Spirit

Hello. This is my first trip into the states from Canada with my rv with my grown daughter and our two cats. Any advice about crossing with cats and where I'm likely to have less difficulty?
We are currently in Alberta
Thanks much 😊

Greetings LyndaG,
No issue with bringing in cats:

With a 31 foot-long motorhome, those must be big cats, right?
Welcome to the forum.

I do not know the situation at the Canadian/US border as it has been 40 years since last crossing there!
But I might suggest looking for info on things like fruits and veggies, that may run into closer watch due to not wanting to move insects and disease?
We still get caught on the various rules as they hazard changes when we go West to the coast. Knowing when to buy or wait on buying things like oranges which they may not allow going into the fruit growing areas can save having to dump something at the check stations.
One way to help yourself is to not buy anything at roadside stands, etc as they are prone to not being inspected, so much more likely to be ditched.
I'm all in favor of doing what we can to keep that sort of thing down as I've seen what it is doing to the Florida crops. That loss of crops is certain to run the prices up and quality down all across the world, so I'm in favor of trying to hold it down!

We were never asked about our cat, but we did see a discussion about some type of very large lizard!! It took two guys to hold it! Not something I wanted in MY RV!

When I crossed the borders with animals, all vaccinations were required to be up-to-date and a health certificate within 10 days from a veterinarian.

From what I have read, by law, all felines are required to have rabies shots. Many have the misconception that if it is a house cat it doesn't need vaccinations.

You can search the subject on-line.

Thanks for the input and welcome. How nice!
Yes, it appears that most US border crossings require proof of vaccination for the cats and then the laws vary by State so we will have their records ready while travelling in case we are asked.
Other advice also helpful thank you!

When I traveled through Canada and back through to the U.S., all I was asked was do you have pets, are they vaccinated, do you have the paper work. I answered yes to all and they just waved me on. Never had to show anything.

It's going to depend on what person is on duty and if they had a good day, or not,
