I lined the portable cage with So Phresh Quilted Potty Pads (click here for latest price from Amazon) just in case there were any spills or accidents from the cats. This portable travel crate for cats was a stress-saver for both me and my two fur babies. I decided to switch cat food (yes while in the middle of a road trip) to the same food my daughter’s cats are currently on; Iams Proactive Health Original Adult Dry Cat Food. I used Kitty’s Wonderbox disposable litter box and the best cat litter for odor control; Fresh Step Ultra Unscented.

” “Hey, this carrier is supposed to hold 2 cats…they don’t look comfortable. ” “Wait, I forgot the pads to place in the bottom of the carrier.
Oh my God, we have to unpack the car to get the cats in there….” Yeah, it was midnight. Everyone, including the cats, was stressed out and barely on speaking terms. Let’s just say the journey wasn’t any better either. Some cats are going to be stressed and irritated no matter how feng shui you make your car and the cat carrier.
