Top tips to care for your cat whilst travelling

Cat Collection and Delivery Service available

Cats can often become distressed and sick during journeys.

  • Try to avoid giving the cat a meal within three hours of making the journey to reduce the likelihood of travel sickness.
  • Try and get your cat used to travelling in the car before setting out on a long journey. Even if it’s a quick trip around the block or a nip down to the shops.
  • Make sure your cat travels in a pet carrier throughout the journey and that it’s shut securely
  • Make sure the pet carrier is firmly secured in the car e.g. using a safety belt. Do not leave the pet carrier to move around in the boot!
  • Use clean newspaper or an absorbent pad to cover the bottom of the pet carrier in case your cat has an accident during the journey.
  • It may be worthwhile speaking to your local vet about tranquillisers and anti-sickness remedies if you have far to travel

At Catseye Cattery we guarantee that all of the above measures are used at all times during our cat collection service and any other time where transportation is required

If you are aware that your cat is susceptible to travel sickness, we would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you prior to collection so that we can take every precaution to minimise any stress or discomfort.

If you’re looking for a cattery in Edinburgh our kitty collection service gives you the best of both worlds – a peaceful cattery in the countryside literally on your doorstep!
