My cat absolutely hates being in my car....does anyone have any suggestions or know any tricks to make a car ride easier for my cat? My little sister always begs me to bring my cat home when I visit my parents house but I never can because he freaks out so bad when hes in my car. A car ride to my parents house takes 2 hours, and I have done it before, but its not a fun ride. Ive tried putting my cat in a pet carrier and tried covering the sides so he couldnt see out and see the outside stuff moving around. Either way, he just meows constantly and every once in a while starts to pant like a dog. Ive also let him just run around the car but that is also tough because he still does the panting and it's obviously kind of dangerous to have him jumping around while Im driving. So, first off....what does the panting mean? The only time he ever does it is in the car and it makes me worry. Secondly, if you know any tricks or anything to make it go smoother please let me know. Thanks a lot!
