|I would say, if your not used to traveling with cats, and all that is involved with it, don't do it, it is very involved, to keep them safe. And being that they are senior kitties, and not used to traveling, it is liable to upset them too much. Then there is, how are they going to react, staying in a hotel, that is another whole ball game, and where are you staying, once you get to SC? Other people there? How will they react to being in a new place they have never been in before?
If the person who will be driving, does not stay at the speed limit, and is not a cautious driver, as in, they don't tailgate, weave in and out of cars, cut people off, etc, mol, do not even think, about taking them, mol. You would be putting them in serious danger.
But, I travel to shows, all over the east coast, 6-7 hrs one way is the norm, mine were trained as little kittens, and if you really want to take them, be very glad to tell you, what you need to know, and that might help with your decision.
I am in the Syracuse NY area, where are you in NY? Paw mail me if you don't want to put it up here, might be able to recommend some people I know and trust, depending on where you are at.
I do understand, your concern, about petsitters. Came back from a horse show early, was sick, my cats had no food and no water, and this was my brother, who was supposed to be taking care of them. Last year, came home late sun night from a cat show, to 2 sick 12 week old kittens. Petsitter at that time, gave them adult food, instead of the kitten food, which, was clearly labeled kitten.
Let me know, if I can be of any help.
