Cat Carrier Trauma

CATMADCARRIERDo you have a cat, who gets tramatized when she sees her cat carrier? You’ve done everything from leaving it out and opening it in the house, you would put cat treats inside and a soft blanket but no use, she will not even consider it! You  usually bring her cat bed, and even put it on the back seat and have her lie in it without the pet carrier. This is not only dangerous because it’s tempting for you to keep  looking back to see that she is OK. It’s dangerous for a cat who is not at all secure in the event of even a minor collision!

Here is a method that might work for you.

Cats associate the carrier with a change of routine and so you must be very careful and try to outsmart them. Don’t bring the cat carrier out right before the trip. Bring the carrier out a day or two before you are leaving on your trip. Place a blanket, a snack and even some catnip inside which might entice them to investigate it. Cats hate being shoved in their carrier with the door slammed shut. If you see your cat go in on her own, close the door for a minute or two then open it again. This sometimes makes your trip a little easier.
