Tips To Car Travel With Your Kitty

Probably, one of the hardest things to do when you go on a holiday is to leave your pets behind because you cannot take them with you. But when you can, try to make the most of this opportunity by giving them the space and comfort they need. Here are a few tips to ensure your kitty’s comfort to make the trip enjoyable for both of you.

  • Just as you like to be comfortable while travelling, so does your cat. The motion of the car will most probably lull your kitten into long naps. If you are travelling alone, let your kitty sleep in a carrier for her safety, with the seat belt to hold it in place beside you. If you are driving with a passenger, let your kitty lie on your copilot’s lap.
  • Kitty’s need pit stops too. When you stop for gas or for yourself, utilize the time to feed and provide water to your cat. Small kittens need to use the litter box right after they eat so make the necessary arrangements while travelling.
  • It is better to hit the road during the milder weather months both for you and your kitty. This way you do not have to worry about your kitten getting too hot or too cold and you can enjoy the sights in peace.
  • When choosing a hotel, make sure to choose a pet-friendly hotel room to stay in while you are touring. You must do some research on the hotels. The ideal cat friendly room will have the bed flush with the floor, with no open space underneath for her to get lost.
