Successfully Moving With Your Cat – Three Tips
By Jon Maxson
In 2004, my wife and I moved from Washington to Arizona. Although the 1,500-mile drive looked to be uneventful, one catch was that we were taking our domestic longhaired cat along for the ride. Now that the experience is behind us, Iâ€™m able to offer these three tips to making your cat move a success.
Sedate â€“ We mentioned our moving plans to a vet, and he recommended sedatives for the cat. Though she wasnâ€™t too keen on taking the pills, I highly recommend them. With just one small pill a day, our cat was able to quietly sleep on the floor of the back seat in the car for the entire day. They wore off after about 12 hours, and she was back to her normal self at night.
