5 tips for taking smooth pet travel

For many people the family dog is a fixture of the great American road trip, but few people ever think of their cats as travel companions. While pet travel is not for every feline, there are some pets that do enjoy the adventure. If you're interested in bringing your cat on vacation, follow these tips to make it a pleasant experience for both of you.
  • Keep it short. If you've never traveled with your cat before, setting out on a cross country adventure right away is not a good idea. Make the first excursion short to get a feel for your pet's travel tolerance. If your cat is not interested in joining you on road trips, it's better to learn that when it's easy to turn around.
  • Bring a touch of home. Your pet is apt to be nervous on his first trip so bringing a familiar blanket or toy is a great way to settle your pet in for the ride. It's also a good idea to pack the same cat food and litter you use at home to add normalcy to the routine.
  • Provide a spot where they can hide. The open road will provide plenty of stimulation for your cat so if they need a break, make sure they have somewhere they can go. A pet carrier is a great option. If your pet travels in a caged pet carrier, placing a towel over the top could be just the answer.
  • Bring the paperwork. Make sure you have your cat's vaccination and rabies records as well as any medications he will need before you leave home.
  • Prepare for outdoor excursions. If you plan to take your cat outside, make sure he has been fitted for a collar and a leash to ensure a safe return for everyone.
