Here are some tips on traveling with your cat :)
For safety's sake, kittens and cats must ride inside a carrier while in the car. The driver needs to concentrate on the road and traffic, not the baby on your lap or under the pedals. Even well-behaved cats that are loose in the car can be injured! Also, please keep the crate in the back seat, an airbag will crush the crate and pet if it's on the front seat during an accident.
On another note, even though your kitty will be inside a crate, it's helpful for them to experience positive things about the car before you start the engine. Cats are sensitive to environment and territory which is why they prefer staying home in familiar surroundings. So make the car familiar by allowing Kitty to cheek rub and spread his scent to claim the car as purr-sonal territory, and he'll feel more relaxed and happy during travels.
Place the cat's bed, blanket, or a towel you've petted him from inside the car on the back seat. That way, his scent is already inside. Spraying Feliway on the towel or car upholstery also may help the cat feel more relaxed.
