Re: Drug the cat for 8-12 hours
Almaz, I'd consult your vet on this one.... I wanted to do the same thing with my cat on a 13 hour drive and my vet actually suggested NOT drugging him because it'd make him much more confused in the end if he starts waking up before you get to your destination. Plus, I'm not a vet but I'm not sure if something would keep yours asleep for that long anyway? I guess what I wanted for mine was something that would make him very groggy but like I said, my vet was against it.
A lot of times, even with cats who hate the car, they'll eventually settle down. And, some are different, some like to look straight forward with a view of the road and some prefer to have their carrier covered up so they feel more enclosed and secure.
