Tips To Road Trips With Cats
Don’t have a catsitter this summer? No worries! If the joy of the open road calls your name, take your cat with you! It is very doable. All you have to do is prepare a bit before hitting the highway with these simple Tips on How To Take Road Trip With Cats. Keep reading because your vacation with Kitty is an experience you will not want to miss out on:
Home away from home
Our independent cats love their own private space. Give it to them with a cozy pet carrier with enough space for the size of your cat. The pet carrier will become home, so it is a good idea to get it well in advance to get your cat to get familiar with it and start making it it’s “castle” before you head out on vacation to reduce anxiety. The cat should be inside the carrier while you are driving for its safety. You don’t want it cuddling at your feet or bolting out the door when you stop at a rest area.
Cool mom tip: you might want to line the pet carrier with plastic and have a couple of towels handy to refresh easily the pet carrier.
Wander With a Leash
Another item to get used to before departing on your adventure is a leash. It will come in very handy during pit stops to stretch out, and litter change. Make sure your itinerary includes a few pit stops.
Keep it Clean
No one wants to be in a car for hours with unpleasant smells. Bring with you New Purina® TIDY CATS® Free & Clean™ Unscented Clumping Litter. You will thank me later. Because it is unscented, we tend to forget we are traveling with a litter. That is also a testament to its powerful odor control thanks to activated charcoal plus TidyLock® Protection to lock away odors. Nothing beats the clean you need free of the stuff you don’t (like dyes or unpleasing fragrances). Additionally, TIDY CATS Free and Clean makes for strong clumps that are easy and fast to clean up. Bonus points? It is also available in lightweight!
Bring along new exciting toys for your cat.
Microchip and Tag
Do not leave home with your cat unless it has been microchipped and has updated tags. You never know when it might get spooked and run away leash and all.
Travel With Cats
Traveling with cats is so much fun. Ready to curl up under a tree’s shadow or to sit together high on a mountaintop to take in the views? That and so much more awaits! Go explore, discover and enjoy with your cat.
The end result will be a great bonding experience with great memories that will have you meowing for more wanderlust adventures together!
