Cats travel recommendations

Pets travel tips? No matter the means of travel you chose, you always have to plan ahead in case your cat slips away from you (God Forbid!). Make sure your cat is wearing his harness with a leash on it allowing you to easily grab him in case he tries to pull a fast one on you. You should also have a way of tracking and identifying your cat such as through the use of a cat collar with a name and your cell phone number. A modern and more accurate way of tracking down your cat is by using a microchip. This can be installed by a vet before you travel making it easy to keep tabs on your cat by simply scanning the chip. It would be a shame to travel all the way with your cat only to find out that they don’t allow pets. A quick call to your hotel before traveling will clear things up allowing you to get the best accommodation for both of you.

What are the best cat sedative for travelling in car? Cats are generally territorial creatures that like their routine. They like their home and they like their territory. Travelling in the car long distances with your cat can prove a nightmare. Just like any animal, cats do not like change. They don’t like changes of scenery, they don’t like changes in their environment, and they especially don’t like being shoved in a box and stuffed in the back of a sedan. There is not much else you can do other than provide a comfortable safe space for your cat while in the car. If they are still anxious and frantic, it may be time to consider another option.

My name is Lucas and I have 2 ragdoll cats. First, there is Grandma Cat (GC) and she is 24 years old. Second is Maya and she turns 14 this year. Both are Seal point (well maybe mitted) Ragdolls, and as you might expect have their fair share of personality. I quite like cats and this site is all about living and travelling with ragdoll cats. Hope you enjoy the site and feel free to contact me. If you are searching for pet travel tips you can find extra info at

A hard sided carrier is going to provide you with the most support for transporting your cat. They will also be more durable and easy to clean. It’s important to note that if you are flying with an airline approved hard carrier, they may not fit under your seat very well, but if something should fall onto the case, your cat will be safe. Hard sided carriers will have a steel wire or steel mesh door that is going to be much more durable than plastic and any hardware on the case should be metal. The handle for your carrier should be stout enough for you to comfortably carry your cat, but it should also be strong enough to support the weight of the carrier and the cat. Most cat ?rucksacks also come in both a soft and hard option so make sure that you consider them as part of your buying decision.

Wikihow recommends feeding your cat its main meal upon arrival at your destination. The cat may get carsick if you overfeed him during the course of the trip. It’s not a good idea to feed him the morning of or during your trip. Offer water at rest stops to keep the cat hydrated. You can also feed him in small portions or offer treats, but only when the car is parked. Prepare the litter box every time the cat feeds. If it’s a really long trip, you can stop every couple of hours to relax and walk around with your cat. This would be much easier if the kitty is leash trained. If your cat isn’t trained to walk on a leash, never take the cat out of his carrier during rest stops. Most importantly, never leave him alone in the car. See more info on here.
