Sedating your cat for travel

We caught her to take her to our vet because she had a large, festering sore on her tail.

The vet said she was about 8 months old when she became part of our family.

They flew in November 2015 when they were 14 years old.

(My son handled Momo, I had Shiro.) They are now 16.

It depends on the type of trip you’ll be taking, the type of transportation services, and of course – the cat’s personality and size. You can get medication like Xanax, Benadryl, Bach flower remedies, and so on, which will help you relieve your kitty’s stress and anxiety.

You should feed your cat several hours before the trip and you’ll need to allow it access to its litter box in order to prevent incidents during the journey.

I bought a soft-sided carrier and left it in the kitchen where all the cats like to hang out; I occasionally threw cat treats or catnip in to the carrier.

I was supposed to take them to a no-kill shelter for the friend whose property they were born on; but after that 6 weeks they became part of the family.Few felines won’t be frightened by traveling, even if it’s in the comfort of your own car.There is no ultimate way to guarantee that your cat will be comfortable while traveling, but there are a few things which can improve the journey in significant ways.Taking it on short drives will help prepare it for the ride.However, not all bus or train companies and drivers will allow you to travel with a feline, so you’ll need to make sure that you can bring your pet on board before the actual trip takes place.Our cats had different life experiences prior to their plane rides.
