|The last time Patricia saw a vet, I said she needs to be sedated to survive a 15-hour car ride (central Ohio to northern Florida). She explained at age 15, Patricia is too old for that because it can cause problems. I was worried she will meow her head off nonstop until she got tired.
Great news! It never happened. As scared as she was, Patricia NEVER meowed in the car. I was surprised. Eventually, she got out of her carrier, which I had to leave open so she could get food and water anytime. But she was too scared to eat and drink when we made several pit stops to feed ourselves or the car.
Your biggest problem is going to be the hotel stay. Patricia was so scared in Marietta, Georgia she went under a chair, behind the nightstand, and under my mom's bed. I strongly recommend booking a Marriott suite if you can because I noticed Patricia was a lot more comfortable there than she was in Marietta. I guess she thought, "This is like home," when she saw a seperate living room.
After three nights at Marriott Suites, it was back to being a scaredy cat for Patricia. She spent the first two days here in her carrier, which I left open in my walk-in closet. Next she went under the bed. It took a full week to get into a normal routine of sleeping ON my bed again.
