Whether you’re moving to a new city or taking an extended vacation, a time might arise when you and your cat must travel together. Traveling today can be stressful and tiring for humans, but for your cat, it can be a very frightening experience. Whether you’re going by car or plane, bus or train, we’ve rounded up some of the best advice to help keep your cat happy and safe during travel.

It’s a great way to test the waters before setting out on a longer trip.
