Cats and Cars

May 31st, 2010 · No Comments · Cat Carrier, Uncategorized

When I take my cat for a ride in the car he simply hates the car by all the noise, the movement and the confusion surrounding the ride is simply too much.   Many cats spend the entire ride howling to escape.  The video describes how your cat can be when riding town. This can also be quite unpleasant to the owner.

The cat carrier is the most logical solution to taking your cat to the vet or just around town when you visit your friends.  The cat will feel safer in a carrier, as it will feel like a little shelter to him. Maybe put something that smells like home in the carrier with him. Try covering the carrier. With the scent of home in his little shelter and a cover blocking out the world, he might forget he’s in a car. 

Or if you like your cat to roam the car with you start by  acclimating your cat to the car prior to the needed ride. Put him in the car, give him food and treats then bring him back inside. Once he adjusts to this, then try doing it again this time also start the engine, if needed follow this with a short ride. Some of the anxiety is likely to dissipate as your cat realizes that he is safe and secure in the car.
