my kitten cried nonstop if we ever showed her a carrier... mostly i just put her in my lap in the truck and she will either lay down and sleep or put her paws on the door frame and look out the window... if she cant be touching her human... me... she just cries when i take her on road trips... ive taken her two and a half hours in my lap to houston and then the same way back home before and she just loved being in my lap and watching all the people in their big machines pass by her window...

on the way back he's as quiet as a mouse. i think he knows he's going home at that point.

I remember when I had to pick up my kitten after I got him from the shelter, and they put him in a carboard carrier he kept crying all the way home...I let him out on the ride and he almost jumped out!

My cats used to be deathly afraid of them. I then purchased some wool mats/liners to put in there, and now they will sleep in there willingly at times. Sometimes they will allow me to put them in there, though once in it still only is a few minutes before they get scared/upset.

Crying in carrier

Yes he does, but only till we get him into the car. Then he calms down a lot - he seems to quite like the car ride, and is peering out of the carrier all wide-eyed at the big world going by.
Then he resumes the yowling when we get him out of the car again.

As long as my fingers are in the carrier he is fine - or... if the air conditioner is blowing right on him. It's pretty funny when he starts feeling uncomfortable - he will meow - then we change the air if he gets to cold - or to hot - then he meows again if he wants us to switch the temp back up or down - such a silly.

On car trips to and from my parents (about an hour and a half drive), Kiera protests being in the carrier and cries so badly for the first part of the trip! When I'm on a flat, straight road, I'll try to stick a finger into the carrier next to me so that she can nuzzle a bit.

I find around 25 minutes into the trip, she will usually realize it's futile, give up, curl up, and go to sleep. Now if she'd only realize this sooner!
