The 6 Stages of Bringing Your Cat on a Road Trip
When I packed up my life last year to move from California to New York, the only way I could think to get my cats from point A to point B was to pack them up in the car with me and drive. I maybe could have figured out a way to fly them, but my little cat has such bad anxiety that I didn't think she could handle it.
Commence road trip!
We made it from California to Ohio to my parents' house before we threw in the towel. Everyone was sick of being in the car and just wanted to stop. I made the executive decision to leave the cats to chill for a few days and drive them to New York later.
Fast forward almost a year, and my cats are now seasoned pros at taking long road trips, thanks to several trips back and forth between New York and Ohio. Do they like it? Probably not. Can they handle it? Yes, and this is how.
