I've traveled a few times with my cat. The first trip was when she was a kitten and she didn't have any issues. Now she freaks out in the car and whines the entire drive. Upon arriving at my parents, she hides under a bed and only comes out at night to eat/drink/use the bathroom.
I have to go out of town for business/mini vacation with my DP. During this time my apartment complex is going to be replacing carpet in my apartment. The only option I have is to leave her with my parents (who happen to live in the city I'm flying out of). Does anyone have any tricks or secrets to making travel easier on cats?
