Introduction

First let me introduce you to my fur babies:

Millie 

 

Millie is a year and a half old, she is very conservative and likes to keep to herself.  she will watch her brother and sister play from a distance but wouldn’t join in the fun.  She will stride pass you and wouldn’t dear give you a second look lol.  But sure enough she will come running at meal time.  She is my doll.

Oreo



 

 

Oreo is my cookie 🙂 she is millie’s sister who is a little more on the social side but will always have this “what do you want” look on her face haha.  She loves to play and run around chasing things.

Ozzy

 

 

Ozzy is Millie and Oreo’s brother, they are all the same age.  He is the most playful of the three and you can always be sure to be entertained by just watching how he moves and plays.

 

Greedy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greedy as her name suggests eats everything in sight and if that’s not enough will always want more and even steal food from the others.  She is about 2 and a half years old now and she looks after Millie, Oreo and Ozzy like if they are hers.  They love spending time together especially Ozzy.  They look like twins and they are inseperable.

Blacky

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blacky is the mother of all cats, she is the eldest, i myself am not even sure how old she is.  She is Greedy’s Mother and Millie, Oreo and Ozzy’s Grandmother.   She is not a stay-at-home cat, she roams and go wherever she pleases but she always know where her home is.

So there you have it, 5 of my lovely beauties who will always be a part of my life.

Millie, Oreo, Ozzy, Greedy and Blacky will be telling their stories and sharing it with you so be sure to keep checking for new posts about them.

Training an outdoor cat to stay indoors

Cats are feral animals so it is in their natural instinct to hunt and roam around.  Being a cat-parent is just like having a child and we would do anything to make sure that our children are safe.  Having a cat indoors only, is the only way we as parents can keep our cats safe from all the harmful things outdoor such as other wildlife, being run over by a car, diseases and parasites and so many more.  Cats on the other hand would like to believe otherwise.  An indoor cat has a longer life expectancy than that of the one who is free to roam.  Kittens are much easier to have and keep indoors because that is basically all they know of and accustomed to, but if you have an older cat who likes to roam outside a lot then it’s a little more work, but fear not it is possible if you just follow these steps:

RECREATE YOUR CAT’S ENVIRONMENT

For this to be successful you need to actually think like a cat, you may want to study your cat for a few weeks to understand what he really does when he is outside.  By recreating your cat’s environment you will actually be transforming your house into a big park or playground where your cat will be safe but also have everything right at his paw-tips so he will not feel the need to go outside.  Some of the things your cat will do when he go outside are:

  • to hunt
  • to climb trees
  • to chase and play with objects such as balls, leaves etc
  • bird watching
  • to find a mate

From the list above you can come up with ways to substitute those things with indoor-friendly activity products.

 

Toys and Puzzle games
 Placing toys and puzzles in different parts of the house, you will have your cat occupied for hours when he finds it and starts playing with it.  He will forget all about going outside.

2.Cat Trees and Furniture
Cats love to climb trees so you will need to place a few of these in your house. It will also help with distracting him from clawing your furniture and will help him to stretch his paws and do exercise. See also: How to stop your cat from clawing the furniture.

3.Bird Watching
In order for your cat to achieve this without actually stepping out, you will have to make sure that there are windows in which your cat can look out at. Having a window perch will be great so that your cat can sit comfortably and look at birds for as long as he likes. Having an enclosed outdoor porch will be a plus for your kitty’s enjoyment.

4.Food and Water
This should always be readily available for whenever your cat has the need to nibble on something or gets hungry. Cat treats are also a great way of letting your cat feel like he has to hunt for food if you place the treats in different hiding places in your house for him to find.

5.Have your cat spayed or neutered

This will help keep your cat indoors and not want to go roaming around looking for a mate! When cats are in “heat” they will do anything to get out and fulfil those hormonal desires which can last up to two weeks (14 days) and if they do not mate within that time they will go back into heat again a few days after.

REINFORCEMENT OF POSITIVE TRAINING

Once your cat is indoors you need to make sure there is at least one door he knows about that he can exit from. Therefore all other doors need to either be blocked or you can use the Cat training system to train your cats to stay away from other doors. Training your cat to come when he is being called will also help for when he do go outside, he will come back when you call him. All family members will have to know once they exit through a door they have to quickly close it behind them before your cat can escape.

Cat training can also be used when you take your cat outside for walks. This will keep him safe and within your own premises and he wouldn’t go roaming into the neighbour’s yard or elsewhere. Remember even if you have an indoor cat, your cat still needs to at least be able to go outside (with your supervision off course) once in a while. Your cat should be on a leash to make it easy for you to be able to control where he goes.

AN INDOOR GARDEN

Making an indoor garden for your cat would be ideal, he would feel as though he is outside with all the outdoor aroma of plants and grass. The best plants to consider when making your cat garden are:

The best time to start training your cat to stay indoors is during winter if you live in an area where this occurs. Cats would love the warmth of a nice soft bed to cuddle up into rather than being out in the cold! Give your cat enough time to accept the changes of this transition and let him adjust by showing a lot of love and attention. There can be a lot of bonding during play time and grooming. See also: Caring for your cats

Knowing when to go Cold Turkey

If your cat refuses to accept the transition and you have given him enough time and privilege of being outside then you may have no choice but to go “cold turkey”. This only means that you will have to show a more stern approach to the training and don’t give into any of your cat’s whining or whimpering ways. Always keep in the back of your head that a safe and happy cat is an indoor cat, this will give you enough motivation to keep doing what you have to do to keep your cat inside.

Introducing your cat to a new cat

If you are reading this, chances are you already own a fur baby and now you are thinking of getting a new one added to your family.  Cats are very territorial in the sense that they like to know they are the kings and queens of their home so by introducing a new member will make them feel less in control and they would then in turn treat the other cat with hostility.

There are some rare cases where you will find a cat to be friendly and welcoming to a next feline, but like i said, very RARELY.

I have had an instance where one of my cats that i owned a while back would go wandering for days and one day he returned with a friend.  He was very happy and loving towards his new friend and i ended up keeping that cat as well (didn’t really have a choice in the matter, because he kept coming back lol), he was a very sweet, adorable animal.  It took him a while before he got accustomed to me though but he eventually did and he became part of the family. I name him “Squatter”.

In the not so rare cases, there would be cat fights, so to avoid that from happening there are steps you should take from the beginning.  It’s better to be prepared and have a happy introduction.

SEPARATE ROOMS

Your existing kitty will already have access to the whole house because it’s his house, but for an introduction to take place, you will need for these two kitties to be separated for a while.  They are going to need their own space to be comfortable in, so make sure to have a separate room for when the new kitty arrives. Don’t let the two cats see each other as yet.  In this room you are going to have to fully equip it with a water bowl, feeding bowl and a litter box.  Your new kitty has to get accustomed to his new space so put a few toys in there for him as well.



THE INTRODUCTION

Even though your current kitty hasn’t seen the new kitty as yet doesn’t mean he doesn’t know that he is there.  Cats do sense these things.  After a few days when you think your new cat is comfortable enough, the introduction part has to take place.  This has to be done in a completely different space, where either of them are not using as a room to sleep in.  This way neither of them will feel like their space is being invaded.

Make sure the room or space you choose to do the introduction, is safe for you and for the cats.  You have to be prepared for any attacks or bites on you and on your furniture.  The room therefore needs to be spacious with easy exit routes so that they wouldn’t feel confined.  Let your current kitty into the room first, let him be comfortable and then introduce the new kitty to him.  What you can do, if there is someone else with you when you are doing this, let them sort of distract one of the kitties by playing games with him or just by patting and stroking him to make him calm.  Have treats on hand so they will associate the whole interaction as something positive.


HOW TO MAKE THE CATS GET ALONG

Truth be told there is no way to make this happen.  Cats are cats, they each have their own unique personality and only they can decide whether or not they want to be friends, playmates, caring siblings or just rivals.  You can’t force them to like each other, all you can do is just give them their space and only time will tell.  Also, you will need to give your new cat time to be able to adjust to you (his new owner), his surroundings and his new feline companion.

What you can do is:

TREAT ALL CATS EQUAL

We all know cats to be the jealous type, some show it distinctively while others just keep to themselves.  This is not good for anybody, you need to treat each cat the same, give them both the same amount of attention, love and support.  By doing this neither of them will feel neglected or have the need to fight for their owner’s love.  Let them have the same type and amount of food and toys.

You have a new cat in your home so you also have to make this one comfortable in his surroundings, your current kitty is already comfortable so now you just need to give them time to adjust and get accustom to each other and all the changes around them.

USE OF PHEROMONES

You may opt to use a cat calmer if you think it is needed.  There are a few on the market you can choose from that are made from all-natural ingredients and are quite safe to use.


WHAT NOT TO DO

If you are taking advice from others, they might tell you to do the whole introduction in an unknown territory for both cats.  They will say that having both cats in a different atmosphere will help them to adjust together at the same time.  Being in a different space will be overwhelming for both cats when it comes to the different sights, smells and sounds.  This in turn will make them quite timid and not open to each other.

Leaving personal belongings hanging around the area where your cats are going to be can be a cause for concern.  If these objects are fragile and/or have some sentimental value then you would want to keep these items away.  These cats may have an array of mixed emotions in their new environment and may cause them to be quite destructive by jumping on surfaces.

There you have it, a complete guide on how to go about introducing your cat to a new cat and how to make sure they get along in the  process as well.  Patience is the KEY word here if you don’t get the results you expected, both cats need time to get used to each other.

Man transforms his house into sanctuary for 300 cats

https://nypost.com/2018/02/05/man-transforms-his-house-into-sanctuary-for-300-cats/

Meet the man who transformed his home into a haven for 300 cats complete with hammocks, heated perches and roast chicken dinners for the pampered residents.

Chris Arsenault, 58, opened his cat sanctuary to cope with the grief of losing his son and has devoted his life to rescuing and caring for abandoned kitties.

The retired train conductor has given his entire house and garden to his feline friends – apart from his small 8-by-12-foot bedroom where he sleeps and eats.

And Arsenault spends his days refilling water bowls, mucking out litter trays, mopping floors and rustling up roast chicken dinners for his furry friends.

Arsenault, who lives in Medford, New York, said: “I don’t find it overwhelming even though there are 300 cats now.

“I truly believe that if you are passionate about something you can handle anything. I really love what I do.

“My house, it’s a big house and there’s a big backyard area. Everything is kitted out for the cats. I designed and build it all myself.

“For me, safety and hygiene have been a priority.

“I have to be able to clean everything, wash everything down.

“The floors are vinyl and the walls are covered in plastic sheeting. Outside, it’s all concrete so it is easy to hose it down.

“I have my own space in the house in the boiler room. I’ve built my own bathroom in there, and I have a little area where I have a microwave, a toaster oven and a sink.

“It’s hard to keep the cats out of there at night, and a few seem to sneak in no matter what I do.”

The Happy Cat sanctuary, founded in 2006, is funded out of Arsenault’s pocket as well as donations from the public.

In 2016 it cost $101,000 to maintain, including $80,000 for animal food and utilities and $21,000 on medicine and veterinary care.

Arsenault, who gets up at 7 a.m. each day to care for the cats, decided to open the sanctuary’s doors after he found “a colony” of sick kittens on the side of a railway track.

The discovery came months after losing his son Eric, 24, in a motorcycle accident on Long Island’s Cross Island Parkway.

Arsenault said: “My son passed away on May 18, 2006, how could you ever forget the day? It changed my life.

“A couple of months after Eric died, I found a cat colony down by the tracks. I was a train conductor for New Jersey Transit at the time.

“There were 30 little kittens and I could tell they were sick. I knew if I left them there they would die so I brought them home with me.

“I am a real animal lover. When I was a kid, I had rabbits and gerbils and dogs, you name it. Animals have always been my passion.

“After my son died, those cats gave me something to do.”

In the years that followed, he contacted local animal charities and shelters and began adopting more and more cats, until the population had swelled to 300.

The sanctuary has a policy to spay and neuter all cats who enter it and Arsenault seeks veterinary care when he can’t treat ailing animals himself.

He said: “Every day I have to treat the sick cats too.

“To keep control of this, I use colored paper collars.

“Depending on their illness, I treat them with different medications, and if it’s something I can’t fix, I make sure the cat gets to the vet.

“Last year I spent $22,000 on vet bills for the cats. I have every cat that enters the sanctuary neutered or spayed.”

Despite the challenges, the dad-of-two says he is proud of the sanctuary he’s built for cats who would have been euthanized without his efforts.

He added: “When I open my bedroom door, there are about 50 or 60 cats waiting for me.

“Most of these cats were abused or abandoned when they came to the sanctuary, so it’s been really a really rewarding thing to be able to give them a home and a place they feel safe.”

Cats and Babies? What are the benefits?

Many questions arise when it comes to having a new born baby in the home.  What should you do with your cat?  Is it safe for your cat to be around your baby?  Well in this article you will be able to feel a little more at ease to know some of the benefits of having a cat around your new born baby.  Recent studies have shown that cats actually help babies lower their risk of having the cold and sniffles during the first year of the baby’s life.

 

How is this possible?

Researchers have found that cats (pets in general) help boost kids’ immune system.  Yes! Surprisingly all that cat dander and germs you try so aimlessly to get rid of from your cat is actually good for your baby and kids.  All the exposure to these things help to develop your children’s immune systems which will lead to better health.

In a Report in the Journal Paediatrics, a case was done where they found that babies who grew up in a home with a pet were less likely to get sick than children who were in pet-free homes.  Previous research also linked the presence of pets with a lower risk of allergies in babies.

 

Other benefits include:

  1. Cats help kids build friendships. Having a cat will help your child to be kind and loving and will also help them learn to share and give, this in turn will be a trait they will carry with them in building friendships with other children.  It will also make it easier for the shyest of kids to feel more comfortable talking with other children who also own cats.
  2. They help build confidence. Owning a cat will help your child to build the confidence in applying for that position in his/her favorite sport for e.g.  Playing games at home with their cat will show them that there is no need to have any fear and for them to feel more comfortable when it comes to the big game.  Cats do like to play games like football and table tennis by hitting the ball around.
  3. They teach kids Responsibility. Having a cat is a big responsibility and by having your kids help you care for them will actually make them responsible children.  So the next time you have to give your cat a bath, let your kids help.  Other things they can help with are:
  • Feeding
  • Grooming
  • Changing the water in the water bowls and
  • Having the litter box cleaned.

By having them do these things will not only help them to be responsible but will also teach them how to maintain a regular schedule.  Cats are creatures of habit so they will learn the specific times in which they will want to be fed, to play and when they just want to sleep.

  1. More Exercise. Cats and pets on the whole, make kids exercise more and not be a couch potato.  Cats love to jump, climb and run around, playing different games so this will keep your kids busy and they will also learn a few yoga moves by trying to imitate a cat who likes to stretch and put themselves in all sorts of positions.
  2. They can make your child smarter. A study at the University Bristol have found that cats are not only smarter than dogs but also their owners are smarter as well!  Why aren’t we surprised by this, it was always known but now it’s proven.  Your child will be spending a lot of time not only caring for these precious animals but also finding ways to outwit their sly ways, inventing games to keep them occupied and keeping them out of harm’s way and trouble.
  3. Empathy.  Children with cats grow a special bond with them and this bond teaches them how to be caring and loving at an early age.  If a child is kind towards her pet she will automatically practice these feelings in different places like schools, in sports etc. and will most likely grow up to be a very respectable individual.
  4. They help kids read better. Cats are loving, caring felines who are non-judgemental and a good listener.  Kids who spend time reading to their cats aloud feel more comfortable and confident and will make reading a more enjoyable experience especially for the ones who have a harder time at understanding all these letters on a page.

So there you have it! If you already own a cat and have children then you have nothing to worry about, if you have kids and don’t have a pet then I hope that the above mentioned ways will help you realise how good it is to own a cat!

Here are some pretty awesome gift ideas that your kids will love




Exotic Shorthair

Exotic Short hair

As the name suggests, this exotic beauty has a lot of similarities to his Persian relative in looks with its round short-flattened face and large round eyes.  The main characteristic that stands out from the Persian is its baby kitten’s face.  The main difference between the Persian and the exotic is its coat.  The Persian has a long thick coat which requires daily combing and brushing, the exotic is quite the opposite where its coat is medium in length and is quite dense and plush with a thick undercoat.

The Exotic is medium built and may grow up to 15 pounds but is quite short and their legs remain close to the ground.  Both pedigreed and mixed breed cats have health problems due to their genetic nature, but exotics have a number of health problems due to their facial structure.  To name a few:

  • Breathing difficulty or noisy breathing caused by constricted nostrils
  • Excessive tearing
  • Seborrhea oleosa, a skin condition that causes itchiness, redness and hair loss
  • Polycystic kidney disease, for which a genetic test is available
  • Heat sensitivity
  • Dental Malocclusions (their teeth don’t mesh well together)

They are very playful but still loves to lounge around and just sit quietly and get a good petting.  They can keep themselves amused by finding objects around the house for e.g. a paper ball.  In general they are good with people but prefer their owners and they do well with children and cat-friendly dogs. The Exotic isn’t very vocal but when they do speak their tone is very soft and elegant.

Exotics doesn’t shed hair heavily so daily brushing is not required, once a week should suffice mainly to keep the exotic looking beautiful and to keep hairballs at a minimum.  A bath once a month should do.

Daily dental hygiene is best to prevent gum disease, but brushing the teeth once a week is still better than nothing.  As for the excessive tearing, wipe corner of eyes daily to prevent under-eye stains from forming.  Clean ears with a cotton ball or a soft damp cloth using a mixture of half cider vinegar and warm water.  Avoid using cotton swabs as this can cause damage to the interior of the ear.

Exotics are best kept as indoor cats, they are not known as the feisty type to defend themselves against predators and other dangers.

Egyptian Mau

The Egyptian Mau

The Egyptian Mau is a medium built sized cat, known for their smoked colour coat which comes in white, black or brown with black stripes and spots.  On their foreheads is a distinctive “M” shape and their round shaped eyes are brightly coloured.  Their faces are a slight round-wedged shape topped with medium to large sized ears.  Their hind legs are slightly longer than the front which gives them the appearance of tiptoeing on small feet.  The Egyptian Mau is usually mistaken for the Ocicat which have the same spots.

Egyptian Mau’s are very active and they love to play, they will keep you on the go so having lots of toys and a cat tree will be a good investment for him.  You can tell when he is happy, he will be vocalised and will flap his tail rapidly.  Another way of him showing his affection to his owner is by kneading his paws on you, because of this, frequent trimming of the claws are recommended.  Another unique trait about the Egyptian Mau is, they love to play in water…yes so don’t be surprised if you find a paw in your backyard pool or pond!

They are quite friendly but prefer their owners to anyone else.  If you have kids they will be ideal to play with and will have hours and hours of entertainment.

They weigh anywhere between 6 to 15 pounds and are a generally healthy breed.  But with most pedigreed and mixed breed cats there have been incidents of health related problems.

Daily dental Hygiene is best to prevent Gingivitis and other gum diseases. Combing or Brushing of the coat at least twice a week is required to remove dead hair and to distribute natural skin oils evenly. Clean ears with a cotton ball or a soft damp cloth using a mixture of half cider vinegar and warm water. Avoid using cotton swabs as this can cause damage to the interior of the ear.

These cats are best if kept indoors, be sure to keep their litter box spotlessly clean as they are known to be very particular about their bathroom hygiene.

Travelling with your cat

Travelling With your Cat

If you are an outdoor person or someone who likes to travel for leisure or even workwise, you may not think of carrying your cat with you but sometimes we may not be as fortunate to have a cat-sitter and then there are some of us who consider our cats to be part of the family and will not want to leave them out!!  If you are thinking about travelling with your cat, it is possible and here you will find a few tips on how to go about doing it.

Choosing an Airline

If you are travelling by air your first step would be choosing an airline that will allow you to travel with your pet.  Once that is done then you will have to find out that specific airline’s pet policies, restrictions and so forth.  Pets are allowed to travel on a commercial airline as checked baggage cargo, as manifest cargo or in-cabin.  In-cabin is the best option for you and your pet, this way you will be able to keep an eye on them throughout the flight.  This option allows for you to stow the carrier under your seat.

The carrier in which is to be used will be specific by the airline, size may vary so make sure to find out the correct dimensions.


Checked Baggage cargo or Manifest cargo

Again you will need to find out which airline accepts Checked Baggage cargo.  Most airlines accept Manifest cargo where your cat will be stored in the cargo hole in a special sized crate. This option is mostly used when you are not accompanying your pet.  We will learn more about this in another article.  When you choose your carrier you will then have to get your cat used to going into it.  This is where planning in advance comes in, by training your cat to go into the carrier even when you are not actually going anywhere will make it a lot easier on the actual day of travelling.  Some ways to do this are:

Give them treats when they go into their carrier without a fuss
Put a catnip toy in the carrier so they will be encouraged to go in
Try putting something belonging to you in the carrier so that they will get your scent and feel more comfortable.
If your cat still doesn’t want to go in, the last alternative would be to use a cat calmer on the day of travelling. Cat calmer is a natural relaxer which will keep your cat calm for several hours.  Perfect if you have a long flight.


After choosing your airline and getting your right size carrier the next step would be to find out what is your destination’s requirements for pets.  Where will you be staying? Is it pet friendly? Do they allow pets?  These are questions you need to find answers to, a pet friendly hotel or bed and breakfast or whatever you choose to stay at.  Next, wherever your destination, there will be certain requirements specific to that country.  Documents will be needed which will have information about the health of your pet.  The most serious of health cases in most countries is rabies so most likely your cat will need to be vaccinated.  These documents also known as a Pet Passport which is attainable by any veterinarian will have to be handed over to officials at the airport.  Best way to keep your documents are in a waterproof pouch or case.
Okay! So now we are all set with where we are going and how we are getting there.  The next step would be packing!

What to Pack

Your cat is part of the family so just think of it as packing for an extra member.  You will need the basic essentials like:

Food and water. It’s always better to be prepared.  Choose what is easier and more convenient for you.  You will need to do more research on where you will be staying if there are any nearby pet stores available for you to purchase food there and be sure they have the same pet food your cat eats.  We don’t want to be changing your cat’s diet because there will be a chance that your cat will refuse to eat.  If it’s not available then you will need to pack extra food.  Bottle water is recommended to be used both for you and your pet.  This can be purchased to limit the weight of your baggage.  Food and water bowls is a must.  Try to keep the feeding routine the same as when you are home because cats on the hold just doesn’t like it when things change.
Litter Box. You will need to pack a litter box as well, because your cat will already be used to it.  A folding travel/portable litter box will be ideal and again don’t change the litter to anything other than what he is used to.  This is also perfect to use if your cat needs the toilet at the airport.  Just put some cat litter in a few Ziploc bags, go into the washroom choose a corner, the litter box doesn’t require a lot of space, put the litter in and your cat will be comfortable to go off when he needs to.  Please discard litter into trash and wash the tray out.  Be considerate to other travellers and don’t wash the litter down the sink.Disposable litter pads will also be useful when your cat is in his carrier.  It will keep the carrier fresh and odor free.


Identification Tags. We all need to keep ourselves and our pet safe, so we need to also be prepared.  If for some reason your cat gets lost an identification tag will be very helpful.  Information like your cell phone # or the # at the hotel you will be staying at will be best if someone should find him.


Cat Harness. You will need a harness if you want to do outdoor activities with your cat, remember this is a vacation for everyone so you can’t exclude him and leave him at the hotel!    Also, do more homework on the different restaurants and café’s that are nearby to make sure they will allow pets to enter their institution.


Cat Bed. This is optional, if you don’t want your cat sleeping on the same bed as you and you want to limit the amount of cat hair on the furniture to make cleaning easier, a cat bed would be a good choice.  You may want to get a small cat pad or bed to take up little space because most rooms in hotels and bed/breakfast are small.  If you already have a cat bed at home it will be wise to get a smaller one that is easy to clean.


Toys.  Your cat will need some toys to keep him occupied while you are engaged in other things, or if you want to have some bonding time with your cat.  Just pack one or two, you don’t need a lot.


Medication.  If your cat is taking any medication do remember to pack it.
Extra sheets and towels. This will be needed just in case of any mishaps your cat may have in the hotel room.  Always better to be prepared.  You may want to cover the furniture with the sheets to keep it clean.
A brush. Your cat will need to be groomed during your stay.
How to keep your cat safe and happy.

Travelling with your cat can be a task, but if you prepare in advance and follow the right procedure then things can be easier.  If you are travelling in a car with your cat be sure to not leave your cat locked in the car even if you think it’s for a short period of time.  Always make sure that the temperature in your vehicle is not too cold or hot, if you are feeling comfortable then sure enough they will be too.  Always keep an eye on your cat at all times, there may be others looking at your cat and they may want to snatch him away.

Keep feeding schedules the same as home as I mentioned above.  Once your kitty has the same routine of eating, sleeping and playing, they will adapt better to the surroundings.

Find the nearest veterinary clinic and keep the contact numbers on hand in case of any emergency.

By following these simple steps I hope it will make it easier for you to travel with your feline friend.

Anyone who has travelled with their cat and would like to share pictures and their experiences I would love to hear from you!  Leave a comment in the comment box.
