Great advice!

I also made them a covered ramp through our rear cloths closet so they can get up behind the rear TV where their 2 automatic feeders and a litter box is located.
Do you have pictures of the ramp area? I'd love to see what you did.

U r rite abot the schedule they create, sleep sleep sleep. Good luck. We use a wallyworld storage plastic bin rather than a normal sand box so they.cant pee over the edges.
Have already run into that sandbox situation with our 9-year-old tabby. He doesn't always squat when he pees, so we have to use extra deep storage boxes!

We also bought him a little outdoor screen house, but he figured out how to open the zipper on that thing in about 30 seconds. Now that he's older though he's content to stay in. One day he accidentally knocked a screen out of the window of our house while chasing a bug and fell out onto the ground below. We were panicking but he jumped straight back in the window!

The younger cat has settled down a lot just in the few weeks we've had him, so I'm hoping he'll eventually turn into a good traveler.

We travel with our cat. The DW will not got without the cat. I will not go without the DW.

She is mostly an indoor cat. We let her go out for a few minutes most days but we harness her tightly and tie her on a rope. She does not run off. We leave the rope loose.

She can get out of a collar and harness if she can get the rope stuck on something. We just watch her real close. If she sense the rope is stuck she can work her way out quickly.

She travels well and we think she likes the motorhome about as much as the house.

One rule is we do not move a slide in or out without eyes on the kitty.


Enjoy the journey.

Cute cat!
We also perform a "Cat Count" before moving slides. We have two cats (plus two dogs) with us all the time. Cats are inside only cats, and it seems they sense we are going to be moving and they hide. I have sealed off anyplace they could get into and hurt, but we still check before moving the slides.

Mine is mainly inside, but also leash trained. He used to be outside before we owned him. Anyway, he's not so nervous when we are leaving and pretty good about using the cat box when I put him in it beforehand. Probably about 50% or so.
