Even though our cats are not the best travellers and we don’t take them to the park in the same way we load our dogs in the car for a visit to the park, but on some occasions, we must travel with our cats. For those out and about instances you will want to make sure you have all the gear and equipment to travel safe in the car. So, whether you are travelling to the vet for a visit or for vaccinations or you are transporting your cat for another reason, you will need a cat carrier. Most vets insist on cats being transported in cat carriers as this reduces the risk of cats escaping from your car or getting attacked by other animals at the veterinary practice. Having your cat in a carrier also reduces the risk of your cat roaming the car while in motion and distracting the driver or damaging the car. Make sure your cat is familiar and comfortable with the cat carrier long before your first car trip.

Pet Hero offers a variety of cat carriers for you to choose from which will make your travel much more relaxed and stress free. You could also add a sign in your car which indicates that you have a cat on board so that others are aware that you need to be extra cautious on your travels. It would also be very useful to have a lead or harnesses handy for when you need to make a stop, allowing your cat to also stretch their legs without risking them running away.

Another good idea would be to make sure that your cat is microchipped or have some form of identification in case the worst happens while out and about. It will be devastating if your cat manages to escape from the car but if you made sure he is microchipped the chances of you being reunited is just so much higher.

You also need to consider the possibility that traveling in a car might cause your cat to get motion sickness. In some cases, motion sickness can be overcome by desensitising your cat with repeated short, uneventful trips. This can be done by gradually making your cat accustomed to spending time in the car. First start while the engine is off, then with the engine on but the car being stationary, then short trips, building to longer trips. Prior to long trips make sure your cat has had food and water but remove it at least three hours before you start your journey.
