So, next week I'm moving to Iowa. Me, my dad, and the two crying cats in the back seat all the way from North Carolina!
I've been reading the old threads on this issue and still have a few questions.
I've seen suggestions to stop at rest stops to offer food/water/litter. How often should we do this? And more importantly, how? I've bought a nice, big carrier
so I can put both ladies together in the back seat, but it will be rather cramped to have both cats AND the pan I bought to be the travel litter box in there at the same time. (I'm not sure I'll be able to manage it.) The rest of the back seat will be filled with houseplants so there will be no place to put the box there, either. Put them on a leash and put the box outside the car? (I was planning on keeping harnesses but not leashes on while they're in the crate.)
Also, I'm not sure what to do about feeding. I know you generally withhold food for several hours before traveling, but we'll be staying in hotels for several days along the way, so the best we could do is feed the ladies immediately upon waking. Does that sound sufficient?
Do I need to get a fan to keep the ladies cool, in addition to the car AC?
