Traveling with cats...

...not recommended. Not only was I shat upon, but my very favorite, ancient, lumpy, not to mention irreplaceable, pillow was pissed on and ruined. You know the big cat house in the zoo? That's what the car smells like. Oh, and my forearms are generously scratched, too.

That being said, I feel sorry for my poor kittehs. They have no clue what's going on, they're terrified of getting out of the car at rest-stops, and they refused to drink when we did take breaks.

Seeing as I only got three hours of sleep last night this morning, we ended our travels earlier than I had hoped, and luckily the cats seem to have recovered nicely. Using the make-shift litter box, drinking water, and trying to steal the dogs' food, too. :)

Time to order pizza and watch some Glee! Good night's sleep and back on the road early tomorrow!

Updates will follow ('cause I KNOW you're interested...;))

Oh boy! Yeah, I've never traveled cross country with cats. One of mine gets car sick.
I recommend OxyClean for the car.

+1 on the OxyClean and I recommend Febreze too!

My kitty traveled from Memphis to Okeechobee FL so well. He just found a nice spot amongst the crap and camped out. Yours are still young though, right? That's probably why. I suggest a carrier!!!

Childrens Benadryl liquid worked wonders when we had to haul Rage Cat 500 miles.
