|I just made a 10 hour drive with Mocha which included an overnight stay at a hotel. I thought it was going to be a nightmare but it turned out alright. I did dose her with Rescue Remedy, though. Instead of using a standard cat carrier, we got a medium sized floppy-foldable-kennel from Walmart for $16. There was enough room for a small litter box w/out a lid, food, water, and room for her to lay around in. I did put her in a kitty harness with leash as well as a collar and ID tag.
She meowed for a little bit, and got carsick once (windy roads), but otherwise, it was an incredibly uneventful trip. I did have a couple of towels in there for her too.
When we got to the hotel, I let her out and about and she did fine. I really think it had to do with the fact that she wasn't as cramped up and such from the standard carrier.
The trip back home went even smoother! No Rescue Remedy, just put her in the kennel, and she did amazing! No meowing, and she even ate, drank, and used the litter box!
