Your Cat’s Vacation

July 6th, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Carrier

rollupFinally, summer has finally arrived with all those travel plans.  Many cat lover’s would rather take the cat with them on vacation rather than leave them at home with a sitter or staying in animal shelter.

When you’re taking your cat and their canine friend on the road a pet carrier is very comfortable for him and makes things much easier for you. Some have better security features and some are more durable than others. A good pet carrier should consist primarily of light materials.

Before using your new cat carrier, let your pet get to know its new space. This is a moving environment and should be a pleasant experience for you and your cat. Put some favorite treats or toys in the bag and slowly move your cat around your home until it feels comfortable.

If you are traveling by plane, ask about special regulations regarding pets in-cabin when making a reservation. A current health certificate (within 7 to 10 days), including inoculations, is essential. To prevent airsickness, no food should be offered within 6 hours of departure, no water within 2 hours of flight time. Your pet should remain in the carrier from the time you enter the terminal until you exit the destination terminal.

Traveling in a car, position the tote in the center of the back seat with the safety belt through the shoulder straps. Make sure your cat’s vaccines are up to date and bring those records with you in the event logging requires proof. Don’t forget to bring plenty of water and food, along with a leash or harness, toys and bedding.
