Travel Tips for your Cat

If the thought of transporting your cat causes you to break out in a cold sweat, you are not alone! But we can retrain your cat to tolerate the stress of travel. Here are some tips:

  • Leave the carrier, with the top detached, in a room where you spend most of your time
  • Line the inside with a towel and spray it with Feliway
  • Use treats: place a treat near, but not too near the carrier, and gradually move it closer until you can successfully get your cat to eat the treat in the carrier
  • When the cat is comfortable going in and out of the carrier, put the door back on, but leave it in the open position, and continue leaving treats/small meals in the carrier.
