You never hear about people taking their cats on vacation. Why is that? What's the issue? After one hell of a summer holiday, we figured out the top ten reasons you can't take your cat on vacation. 

1. Once your cat discovers that vacations are all about relaxing, she'll figure out a way to sleep 25 hours a day and the world will end.

2. Taking your cat on a horseback ride is an invitation to murder.
