There's no way to know whether or not your cat likes riding in a car until you try it. Some of them enjoy it, others don't. Before you decide to take it on a long trip, see how it reacts to short ones. The middle of nowhere is not the best spot to learn that your cat gets carsick. You can get tranquilizers from your vet, but some cats react badly to them. Be sure to find out how your kitty is going to be affected before your trip. Once you're in the car, be sure to confine your cat, either in a pet carrier or on a leash. For longer trips, phone ahead to make sure your reservations are at a hotel or motel that will take your cat. Be sure to pack all the supplies your cat will need. Food, water and a litter container are the bare minimum. Toys and treats are a good idea, too. Don't leave your pet alone in the car, especially in hot weather. The temperature in a closed car can rise to dangerous levels in a hurry. Once you've got everything you need for the trip, you and your cat are ready to travel. But even though cats are smart animals, don't plan on sharing driving duties.
