We tried taking Abby on 4 different trips. On site she did great! Going and coming, not so much. We would definitely have to sedate her when going on longer trips.

Yup we do, usually when winter camping though. The cat seems to LOVE winter camping for some reason. We put her litter in the tub of our TT. Not sure where we will put it in the 5'r.

We take our two cats with us. One of them travels well, but the other one gets car sick for the first two or three days of each trip. The vet suggested a dose of children's Benedryl. I haven't tried that yet.

One concern that we had was the cats overheating when we are off for a day of hiking. I constructed a screened room that hangs from a window. The adjustable supports are paint roller poles. The two brown brackets are to fasten it onto a bumper mounted carrier when we travel.

I was not sure that after all the work, these perverse critters would use it, but they love it.

Mine is an old cat and tends to miss the litter box so the fur ball stays home and gets attended to daily by a neighbor. Anyone want a cat?

Joel, that is very nice! Here is what we have prepared for when we start to use the motor home.

It is one of the crates that will be inside the RV. When we park, it will be moved outside and attached to the window with airplane wires and hooks that my husband has installed. We will put one on each side of the RV.

We will be traveling with eight cats so this will be tricky.

Traveling with eight cats - you surely will have your hands full. Good Luck.

We are attempting to work Miss Snickers slowly into camping. I've been placing a harness on her from time to time and taking her out to the camper to let her sniff around and get used to it Like the outdoor "rooms".

Has anyone have a good setup for cats? If so could you tell me what I may be missing. Is it feasible to take a cat with you camping?
We take ours, they are fussy at first, this was our 3rd trip, this last one was much better, I am going to try the Benadryl for my Gracie, she hates the noise of driving, we put the litter box under the sink it works very well. They enjoy it once were set up and camping!
