I just read an article in Reader's Digest about how an innocent can of beans can become a deadly projectile weapon in the event of a car crash.

It also mentioned that pets can become deadly in a car crash.

So, how can you safely restrain a cat in a car?

I put my cats in a pet carrier and secure the carrier with a seat belt. This might protect me from deadly projectile kitties but what about the cat hitting the side of the carrier? I have never seen a padded pet carrier and doubt I could afford one if I did. I'm going to ask my husband to try to figure out a way to pad our carrier and better protect my cats.

Your right, the poor cat would bang all around the carrier and might possibly get hurt. I wonder if pet stores sell padded cat carriers. Thanks for sharing.

The carriers I use for my cats are small enough to prevent the cats from "banging around" in case of a carcrash, however the carriers are big enough for the cats to move around in. I usually have a lot of soft things inside the carriers just in case.
