Wild Thing

We are going to be traveling in an F250 pickup truck from DE to MS - taking 3 days to get there. We are taking our 2 cats with us and will be in the truck approximately 6 hours per day. We plan on stopping every 1 ½ to 2 hours and walking them on their leashes. Are there any kind of pet barriers available that will give the kitties full access to the backseat of the truck and at the same time prevent them from wondering into the front seat. The only vehicle barriers that I can seem to find are for dogs and not for my kitties who seem to be able to squeeze through any small space they can find.

In case your in an accident ( although we certainly hope not!) it might be better to keep them in a cage so they dont get scared and get loose in the confusion but I know i've seen what your talking about. Hopefully these or something else similar will fit your truck!

This one says its for dogs, but it's openings are only 2" so maybe it would work for you?

This one is made for cats and even has an extension if you have bucket seats to cover the bottom of the car too!

No Not-Moms!!!!

I have to agree with Jewel on this one: carriers make me feel lots safer than being able to move around. My mom takes us up to the mountains in her full-size SUV, but each of us has his/her own large kennel. It's big enough to hold a sleeping pad (which, being careful like I am, I sleep under rather than on) and a makeshift litterbox. Mom always puts one of the little cups on the door with a bit of water. This is way safer than being loose in the truck! And Mom always makes us wear a harness with an i.d. tag *and* we all are microchipped! Mom doesn't like to take chances; hope your mom doesn't either! way to go
