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 fur baby on their lap or under the pedals. Even well-behaved cats loose in the car could be injured in the event of an accident.
Even though your cat will be in a crate, it's helpful for kitty 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.
At this time we have new protocols in place to help keep our staff and clients safe and to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. We have increased our appointment times and are staggering our appointments. When arriving at the clinic please call us and wait in your car for further assistance. To practice social distancing only pets will be allowed in the clinic. Please stay in your car and we will come get your pet from your car for the appointment. Payment will be done by credit card over the phone or by e-transfer. Thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times.
