Traveling with Your Cat? Here’s What You Need

We normally talk about traveling with your dog. Today we are going to talk about traveling with a cat.

Traveling with a cat is not the same as with a dog. Cats love to hide and will get under anything they can. Having a cat travel in a car without being  placed in a cat carrier is asking for trouble. They can get trapped under the gas pedal or even try to wiggle their way under the dashboard. Cats must be secured in a sturdy cat carrier during a road trip. Here are some supplies that you should keep in your car for the trip.

  • Bottled Water and a no spill bowl.
  • Dry food, a small bowl and treats.
  • Favorite toys
  • A comfortable, familiar blanket
  • A leash, spare collar with ID Tags and a reachable phone number
  • Cat first aid kit
  • Travel litter box. They sell throwaway litter boxes in the supermarket.
  • Non prescription calming medicine such s Rescue Remedy
  • Photo of you cat in case she gets lost
  • Your cats medical records
  • Paper towel rolls and plastic bags

It’s better to be well prepared for any road trip with you cat.
