|My cat lives with my parents in the country. They are now moving, and she can't come live with me because I live in town, and she doesn't get along with my 4 dogs (she fights with them, and chases them). So, they are taking her with them when they move.
She is 14 years old, and she will be going on a 14 hour road trip. She is not fond of the car, and they are leaving next week. They have bought her a crate, a leash and a harness. She will have a litter box.
Does anyone have any tips, other than getting her used to the harness and crate, on how to keep her calm, get her in and out of the crate, with out having to use oven mitts? How often should you offer her use of the litter box? How often should you offer food and water, if at all? Where do you offer her the use of the litter box? Do you just put her on the leash, and put the litter box in front of her, or let her loose in the vehicle with the litter box?
Also, when they get to the new place, how should they go about getting her used to the new place?. This is especially important since they are in the process of building the house, and the cat would be staying in the cabin, with my dad, until the house is built.Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.
