Taking your cat on a trip by choosing the car can be the simplest and cheapest solution depending on your destination. Indeed, by borrowing the other means of transport, the place of your animal will very rarely be free and strict rules will have to be respected. However, choosing the car to travel does not mean that the trip does not have to be prepared in order to be able to proceed safely.
First of all, traveling with a cat by car requires preparation so that the transportation goes well. So it starts with regular breaks to allow the animal to stretch its legs! These moments will prevent him from getting impatient, and will allow him to make his needs, if necessary. Of course, it is possible to have a small litter box in the car to facilitate this. It is of course essential to have an absorbent material to avoid leaks, it is also possible to add a cushion, a blanket which the animal used to.
During the journey, the windows must remain closed, to prevent the cat from escaping. In addition, leaving the animal in the back of the car is more secure. In fact, the deployment of airbags while the animal is in the front of the car can cause injury.
However leaving the animal in the back of the car is not enough, indeed, we must of course allow the animal to be safe inside. This is why, two solutions exist. First of all, the container or the transport bag, which are widely used and widespread. However, it can disturb the animal if it has not been used to it. The second solution is a seat belt for animals. It is therefore the same system as the seat belt normally used.
During breaks, it is also important not to leave your pet alone in the car. Because even if the interior temperature seems moderate, the interior of a car heats up very quickly. In reality, it can reach up to 100 degrees in just a few minutes.
Finally, don’t forget his favorite things! And above all, water and food, so as not to miss it during the trip.
