Cats are very smart. As soon as they see luggage being packed
or the carry box come out of the cupboard they know what’s
going on. Does this mean a trip to the vet? Try and associate
the carry box with good things. Bring the carry box out a
couple of days before the trip. Set it up near where they
eat, and try put there favorite blanket in it or they favorite
person's old tee-shirt. If you don’t have a carry box
we have them here to borrow at no charge.
No cat likes going in the car. They may complain and sing
out a bit. Talk to them in a calm happy voice telling them
how beautiful they are and how much you love them and what
a wonderful holiday they will have. Keep them in the carry
box and use the seat belt to secure it.
If you have more than one cat we find it best to keep them
together during their holiday. If they tolerate each other
at home they become good friends at the cattery. If you are
unsure please talk to our staff.
We provide bedding and pillows for cats to sleep on and
we encourage people to bring something familiar from home.
You are welcome to bring beds or even their owners old tee-shirt
that smells like there favorite person.
