6 cats, one dog. We have a 5er. Cats go 3 each in a soft side crate rated for 40 lbs. The crates go side by side in the back seat. Dog gets the remaining spot with a seat belt clip.

None are allowed unrestrained access while traveling.

If we ever get a motor coach, the cats will still be in the crates during travel, dog on a seat belt clip.

Slides do not move til cats are crated and dog is secure.

I will never travel with an unrestrained animal, dangerous to them and dangerous to the driver. Plus they can easily escape.

I can't imagine traveling in a vehicle with 6 animals that are trained to "poop inside". What do you do during those moments...before they cover it up? I bet the motors in your windows get a good, regular workout! Poor dog!!

Some dogs love cat poop! It must be very tasty. I do know it stinks to high heavens if one of our cas gets lazy and doesn't cover up!

Our big cat does not cover it sometimes. The small one goes in and covers it up for her :-)

Actually this one is even better! 60 mph on I-5 headed north from 7 Feathers in OR. The one on the right at the window was on her first trip. When I started the engine she got a little concerned, popped her head up, saw the other two weren't concerned and went back to sleep.
The one in the foreground, GP Hoofnpaws Noah, went over the rainbow bridge last Dec. due to intestinal lymphoma

We’ve done it this way for over a year and only ONE time had one poop. And she was an elderly cat.

We also do not travel more than 200 miles, less if possible, in one day.

Yes, they are trained to go inside but similar to dogs in a crate, cats also don’t want to mess in their bed.

Also, we are in a 5th wheel. We aren’t traveling when they are loose. Honestly the cat poop smells better than my husband’s when he’s sitting.

My wife say's the same thing about me, especially when I overindulge in a extra bowl of homemade ham/bean soup.

One of the "main reasons" I bought a coach with the half bath addition...my room.
