I'm going to be moving from Phoenix, AZ to Rochester, NY by way of Washington, DC next month. I've got two darling little cats, but they're very active, and the thought of them cooped up in a carrier all day in the truck and then getting let loose in a motel/hotel room in the evenings just frightens me!
I'm going to have the truck loaded down with stuff, and I'm going to have the cats in a large (for them) carrier. It's big enough that they can both fit in it comfortably, and still be able to get up and stretch and what not. It'll be buckled on the passengers seat of my Pathfinder with the passengers airbag disabled. I've got a bunch of those little throw-away litter pans that I can put into the carrier when I stop for fuel so they can relieve themselves and I can just throw it out when I leave so I don't have a stinky litter box in the truck. I also don't want them roaming free because I don't want them to get on me, or under the pedals, or fall out the window...*yikes* They'll have a constant supply of food and water.
I'm considering getting some of the sedative travel pills from the vet to keep them calm during the drive.
Does anyone have any tips/tricks/suggestions for roadtripping with cats?
