Article 14(2) of the Withdrawal agreement suggests that proof of pre-settled status might be considered in that respect like the article 10 residence card under Directive 2004/38/EC it is intended to replace.

The best way is to drive with the cat in your own car, and use the Eurotunnel “Le Shuttle” service, which is pet-friendly.

In theory, the law is harmonised across the EU, and allows pets up to 8kg including carrier to fly in the cabin. In practice, no scheduled flights into the UK seem to actually allow this. The best option will be ...
