Tips for Traveling with Your Cat
Eager to hit the road with your feline friend? Fantastic! Here are a few important things to keep in mind.
If you’re going to use any form of public transportation (like a plane, train, or bus) make sure to confirm that the route is pet-friendly and that they are able to accommodate your cat before booking. Confirm also what the required dimen- sions are for carry-on luggage; every company has a different policy, so check before booking that your cat backpack is the right size.
Create a thorough packing list in advance, considering the clear, necessary items (like cat food and a litter box) as well as the less obvious items that your cat uses every day (perhaps a certain cat bed, scratcher, or toy). Your cat’s items will often take up more room than you may anticipate, so a list helps guarantee that you won’t run out of room or forget something important when packing.
Note that “pet-friendly” does not always mean “cat-friendly.” When looking for accommodations and activities, call ahead to make sure they do indeed welcome cats. It’s also good to clarify whether you’ll be expected to pay a pet fee.
With these tips, you and your furry friend are ready to go on exciting cat-adventures!
