Carrying your cat

cat-carrierMany cats don’t like the idea of being pushed in their cat carrier.  It really doesn’t have to be that way.  To make your cat feel safe, choose a carrier that has small holes for ventilation. Make sure that it does not have any big windows. A cat will feel safer if he does not have any outside stimuli.  The best way to get your car accustomed to his carrier is to do so while he is still a kitten.  Start by leaving the carrier out with the door open for a few days. Put a cat toy, and a soft blanket inside to make it enticing for your cat.  Put a few cat treats away from the carrier door and bring them closer each day.  Then feed the cat inside the carrier. Soon he will accept his carrier as a safe place to snuggle not a scary place to be afraid of.
