Travelling with a cat can be a nightmare if you're not properly prepared. Driving down a busy freeway with a cat yelling in your ear and trying to stand on your head is not the right way to start a holiday. Fortunately, by just following our simple cat travel checklist, you'll have a happier time if you need to take your cat travelling, whether embarking on short or long journeys.
If you're flying, don't feed your cat for four or five hours before the flight, and keep her hydrated, but don't let her drink too much. That should help ensure a happy flight for you both.
Remember, from time to time, to talk to and stroke your cat to reassure her and let her know you are there. Even if you're driving, you can stop every so often to give her a little pet - but if you're taking her out of the carrier, make sure her leash is on, and the windows are closed! Using this checklist, you should get to your destination unfrazzled, and with a happy cat.
