Transporting a cat – a guide
Any change of the environment for a cat is a stress factor, as is the journey, which is inevitable.
You need to prepare a carrier before the trip. You can line the interior with a hygienic pad that will protect them against possible “mishaps” and will make the inside of the transporter more comfortable for the cat. It is necessary to secure it with the seat belts, so that the transporter does not move in the car while driving.
If the trip is long, you should take breaks to feed and water your cat. You need to remember that we never open the door of the carrier when the door or windows in the car are open as this may cause the cat to run away.
When the trip is over, the cat needs time to get used to new surroundings. You should give it as much time as it needs.
