|Our four have just returned home from traveling. We all left in June from Tucson, AZ and did a 5 day trip to Northern Ohio. 2 months later, we were loaded up again and went to Minnesota. 2 months later we drove from Minnesota down to Texas, near Houston. Now back in Tucson at home hehehe
We do this every year, and Meow-Mom bought a "dog gate" at PetCo that goes up behind the Drivers seat in the SUV. We all are safe then on our Temperpetic pad - bought & cut to fit our spot and have the whole back end for our crates, water, food and potty box.
We DO go potty on these long trips, but don't eat or drink much until we get to stop at night
Meow-Mom stops after 1/2 hour, cuz 2 of us get a bit car sick at first and she replaces some of our blankies, then we are all good and go into a semi-zombie mode hehehe We don't do any drugs, cuz her kitties before us took them and slobbered too much and were drugged acting :-(
After a couple hours, the cats know this isn't a short trip to the Vet and DO settle down quickly - ear plugs if you can't stand to listen to meowing LOL but Meow-Mom found out WE like soft country western music to lull us across country.
Best of luck on your long journey!
