    I was wondering if any one has any tips on transporting Cats by car?

    I only have one problem and thats with horris he goes nuts when in the car. I was thinking of putting him in his carrier with a towel and shredded paper about 15 minutes before we go and then load him into the car and let him sit there for a few minutes before actually leaving.

    Spray the carrier with feliway 10mins before you put him in. Presto cries for the first 20 mins then tends to sette down. We cover his carrier with a blanket too to make it dark, also make sure it is secure and on a level so he feels safe.

    My mum always used to get the carriers out about a day before going anywhere so the cats could see them and put their scent all over them before going in them. Put them in the carriers about 15 mins before you leave and cover them with a towel if they get distressed. Talk to them too so they can hear a recognised, friendly sound. Hope this helps xxx

    We taught Damien to go into the carrier on command and then gave him treats for staying calm. Try putting him in before you leave and covering it up if its dark and warm he'll be calmer.
