My cat wants to go too

I always joke when people post about things like "where do I put the cat box" in their camper and say "Our 3 dogs go camping. The cat prefers to stay home"

Well apparently this is not true. Our last couple of trips when we come home the cat will not leave me alone. He's up on my lap or the head of my chair. Follows me all around the house. Just does not seem practical to bring him along in our small space with the dogs. Plus, I'm afraid he'd get out and be lost.

So take him. He's part of the family too.
Maybe a restraining system to keep him inside?

I agree take the cat with you. Just make sure that he has at least one “safe” place away from the dogs where he can sleep and relax and have the liter box in a good location that’s separate from the dog area (like the shower).

You don't know my cat. It's the dogs that need the safe spot.

We are full timing. I wasn’t leaving my 6 cats behind.

As to the litter box, we tried the bathroom, but decided the closet floor works better. The litter boxes are top entry to avoid dogs snacking on cat poop.

We have water separate but they also share the dog water bowl. The food is up where the dogs can’t reach it.

We have 2 dogs, both are smaller than the cats and the cats were there first. When we just had one, she slept in the bed with the cats. But once our newest one joined us, she had spent most of her first 18 months in a crate. We tried her on the bed, she peed on it. So we set up a crate and both dogs stay in there at night. They give each other company.
