Prepping Your Cat For Travel
Preparing the Carrier
Your goal is to get your cat to think of the carrier as a safe space, not something they should be afraid of. This will make putting them inside the carrier a lot easier. To make your cat feel even more at ease, place some clothing with your scent inside and some toys, treats, and soft bedding.
If your cat is typically nervous, consider using Feliway or a calming collar.
After You Arrive
When you’re placed in the exam room, open the front door of the carrier and let your cat come out on their own so they can explore the area. These can be stressful times for them, but we do our best to keep that stress to a minimum.
