Boy I am glad to see there are some cat lovers on here. We have often talked about taking some of ours on a trip with us but can't decide which ones or how many. Unfortunately we can't take them all because of how many we have. All are rescue.

We use this for our little Ollie.

Our biggest issue with him, is trying to find all of his hidding places. Up inside the dash was his 1st place, now blocked. Then up behind the fire place, small hole created by kitchen slide out. Again, now blocked.

He is SOOO good, just stands at the bottom step of door, looking out the screen, if someone comes, he scampers back inside. Never (so far) has tried to run outside. (He does this at home, will sit at the patio door, maybe put a foot outside, but pulls it back if you say something)

We had to make what I call "Cat Diversionary Devices" to put into all the slide gaps... Other wise the cat (Cinnamon) would get under the slide and we needed a broom and stick to get her out (or a bit of milk).

Pat, Jen & Heather... Oh yeah and our trained attack trailer cat, Cinnamon

Our cats ride to the MH in carriers in the car (they hate this part) but once we get to the motorhome I put them in harnesses with short 4' leashes with a carabiner so I can attach them to the nearest seatbelt. They usually sleep, and are really calm the whole trip.

We travel with 3. Two sleep under the couch while underway and then come out when we stop. Tommy pretty much cruises around and sleeps on the dash (yes, while underway), on top of our captains chairs or on my control panel next to me. I'm always amazed they stay forward and not back on the bed...

I have found a catscity belt(new item) has been working well, along with an abundance of pickle bread kept well within reach seems to be satisfactory. Before that, she always seemed very happy with a small box. However, Katy really likes her Purdue University stretchy string yarn chew toy, especially after she got the Purdue University out of it.

This is a cat mod I made to keep them from unrolling the toilet paper. Just turn both ends up and stick a wooden dowel rod in them. Reserve roll right at hand and they can only get one sheet of tp.
After 8 attempts to get the picture right side up as it is on my computer, it just remains upside down. Go figure. Anyway, you get the idea. Either turn your computer over or stand on your head.

We travel with our dog and two cats. I blocked the side entrance to the dash with wire mesh and duct tape (from inside of the dash using the upper access panel) to keep them out of the dash. We started out using canvas carriers but soon just left the doors open so they could come out if they wanted. One wanders or lays around. Another stays in the carrier anyway. I also cover the leveler control box when parked as one cat turned the power on and tried to relevel our rig once. Not good! No real problems other than hair. We do carry their beds and leave a shade open at night for them to stare out of.
