|We drove from Atlanta to the Seattle area with two cats and it went surprisingly well. The most important thing is to keep him in his carrier at all times. When you let him out for a potty break (I carried a small litter box with me, which the cats never used in the car), be sure your car doors are closed.
In the hotel room, be sure that you block any places he could hide (like behind the bed) that would be difficult to remove him from. This from personal experience!
Also, if you leave him in the room, remember to keep the Do Not Disturb sign on the door.
Bring his medical records with you and make a list of animal emergency hospitals on your route. Also, I would make hotel arrangements beforehand so that you can find places that will accept pets.
Like I said, our six-day trip was highly uneventful. My cat, Sasha, cried for an entire day, but after that, she was quiet. Abbie and Sash both seemed to enjoy the hotel rooms. They even got to see Mt. Rushmore!
Good luck to you - on your move and in your new home.
