Default my cat at van...

as you know, I have taken one of my cats to the van this weekend..
the car journey was ok for a bit but then he started to get agitated,, so I pulled off the M6 to find somewhere to stop... unknown to me, when I pulled off there were about 7 exits off the roundabout!!,, I went round and round 3 times till I could exit safely...
we took him out of his box and got the cat litter tray ready... he just faffed about all over the car, in the footwell, the back seat etc etc..
so we put him back in his box... carried on till van..
arrived at van... he was everywhere!! we had to follow him round for ages to check what he was up to....
eventually he settled but it is stressful to say the least... as he is an indoor cat

I don't know how we'd manage if we took our Cat!!!......he's an indoor Cat too but he likes his own special places in the House. But I would be like you Tia, if he was too ill to leave at Home with my Son popping in to see to him, then I'd either not go to the van or I'd take him with me. It would be very difficult tho' if the weather was hot as we wouldn't be able to have the doors and windows open

Oh and our Cat cries all the time when he's in his carrier in the car, maybe because he's usually going to the vets so he can sense it!!!

Tia I hope your cat is ok. Ours was ok when we got home, he's ignoring me at the min so is still unhappy at been left lol - he did have someone looking in on him.
Typical re the roundabouts - when you want to get off in a hurry you can't! Hope your cat has settled in now and the journey home again is better xx

once he got over the initial shock of being away from home he has been quite good..
hubby was feeding the ducks by the front door today, you should have seen Ginge(cat) by the door staring out! he obviously has never seen a duck before...
he has been brill in his litter tray and also has used his scratching post...
he hasn't used his bed... preferring to sleep on a blanket on the settee during the day and on our bed at night,,
last night was hilarious.... I went to bed and told hubby to give him his usual biscuits for bed, next thing.. he came thundering in the bedroom and lay across hubbys legs so he couldn't move... I couldn't stop laughing...

just the journey back tomorrow now... but overall he has been ok, he can come again......
now, what about the other 4?? what to do with them when my daughter moves out next month... I cannot do a car journey with 5 of them.....

We took our parakeet a few times when our Son was young cos he didn't want to leave him behind.....used to look funny sitting in the cage looking out of the window in the back of the estate car We don't take him now tho', another pet that Son has to keep an eye on while we're away......come to think of it, the Cat and the Birds were his!!!!

emmel,,..
tell me about it... one of my cats is my sons cat.... he didn't take him when he moved out because where he is renting he isn't allowed pets..
my daughter says that ginge is her cat but I beg to differ... who stumped up for vets fees? who cares for him all the time?? yes me...
just because daughter fusses him now and again , she thinks that is all she has to do!! grrrr.
when she moves in with her chap, they are getting a dog... so guess who ginge will be stopping with??.yes me again...

Funny you should mention the moving out and leaving pets behind......my Son now has two Cat's and a Dog!!!! Which just goes to prove, don't buy pets for kids unless you want them yourselves. I would not have allowed him any that I didn't want myself exactly for that reason.

Must admit tho' when I got married I took my Dog with me, I wouldn't have gone without her......we came as a package

Technically both our cats are our daughters but to be fair she does feed them for us
