Well we are going on vacation next month (THANK GOD! I need it!) and the drive is going to be about 7 1/2 hours. Ricky bobby will be tagging along. Now he is a very calm, laid back cat, I've actually never seen him stressed out except for one time when there was a tornado about 30 miles away. I guess he smelled the weather and sensed something was up. Other than that I've never seen him stressed out. So I'm really not worried about him being a bad traveler, he is in love with his carrier and thinks it's a toy/tunnel to play with. He meows for it when I put it up. I just want to take the necessary precautions to make it as safe, pleasant and comfortable for him. For a cat as laid back as him, would you recommend something like rescue remedy or feliway? I'm thinking of going with rescue remedy over feliway, just because I don't see him freaking out too much. He has taken short car rides several times and seems to love them, no protesting from him at all, he just sits in the car and enjoys the ride, looking out the window. The only thing i'm worried about is he's going to be in a strange environment for 6 days/ 5 nights. We're going to be staying at a pet friendly inn & suites. i plan on burning a few cd's with relaxing music to play while we're out on our daily activities( I've found cat specific relaxing music). I want to take his cat tree (I know I'm crazy) but DH says that's just too much! lol So I'll probably buy him some kind of scratching post/ play area. Umm, any recommendations? What have ya'll done when taking your cats on vacation?
