Moving to Spain with our cat

Hello, anybody have any information on what we need to do to import our house cat to Spain from Zurich? We already booked our flights and made a call to the vet, who said that they could provide her with a health certificate and pet passport but I should double-check with the Veterinäramt. They then directed me to the Spanish consulate, still awaiting their response...

When I moved her from California to Switzerland, I used a pet travel company. Any help is appreciated

You must go to customs when you arrive at the airport and declare your cat as an import (don't not do this, just ask forum member ItsJess). They will give you the paperwork for the vet to properly register your cat in the Swiss system.

(Cat needs EU passport and rabies vax)

They’re moving from Switzerland to Spain so they need to know what the procedure is for importing the cat into Spain.

All good, thank you though However... when we brought her to Switzerland, we went through customs and they just sent us on our way, they didn't give us any paperwork or told us to register her
