Most kitties don’t like travelling unless they’ve been used to it from an early age.
As a full-time pet sitter, I am very lucky to have a cat who loves me more than fear.
He travels with me almost everywhere.
He found me when he was already several years old. He’d been abandoned and managed to survive intact, except for his foot which is a bit mangled, in-spite of black widow spiders, drunk drivers, packs of coyotes and other feral critters of desperate temperament and violent behavior.
So after I took him in, we headed North. The auto trip was his first, no doubt.
Keeping animals calm is key to helping them cope with changes in routine. Even meeting new people can be stressful.
There are several brands of herbal and homeopathic supports available.
Bach Flower Rescue Remedy is a trusted formula safe for dogs and cats. Check if your pet is on any other medication that there’s no complication before giving anything.
Start several days ahead of travel or event by giving only 1 drop in a small bowl of water or in wet food, am & pm.
Keep eye out for any negative reaction. If all is well, use as needed for up to 10 days.
There are other supports for daily use. Contact me by message for more information.
