How to travel with cats 

Now that you have some travel inspiration from a few of our favourite adventure cat Instagram influencers, here are some of our travel safety tips to keep in mind on your next trip with your feline friend: 

  • Be sure to pack all necessary items for your cat including food, water, a leash, medications, toys, blankets, first aid kit, litter supply, and grooming supplies.  
  • If you are travelling by car, keep the car at a comfortable temperature using air conditioning or heat when necessary. 
  • Feed your companion animal a light meal at least four hours before the trip to help prevent car sickness and nausea. 
  • Prevent your furry friend from sticking their head out the window since sudden stops or debris can cause injury. 
  • Schedule rest stops for every two to four hours for exercise, bathroom, and water breaks. 
  • If crossing any borders, bring copies of any required documents (such as proof of vaccinations). 
  • Make sure your cat is leashed or secured in a comfortable cat carrier before you open the car doors to prevent them from darting out. 
  • Keep your cat’s personality in mind – if adventures aren’t for them, leave them at home where they are comfortable. 
  • Ensure they are microchipped and keep your contact information up-to-date.
