Does anyone take their cat on trips?

We were considering taking our cat with us on our next trip. We got a small litter box, cage for outside and a leash.

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 used to take our cat (and dog) all the time with us. We had a small cage for the dog while we were away. We don't take either anymore because we were always scared the power would go out while we were gone.

We’ve taken Daisy with us since we first got her back in 05.
She loves to sit on the center console & really likes when tractor trailers go by.
If you pick up her leash she comes running from wherever in the camper & sits by the door.
She’ll go for a walk, head back to the camper, use the scratch box & want back out again.

My DW (aka: crazy cat lady, named by our Grandsons) takes her cat camping. I would say it all depends on the cat. Our cat travels well, does not seem to eat or drink much until we stop for the night, It does not do the incessant meowing thing and never attempts to make a mad dash for an open door.
One thing however, per my DW, it is necessary to take along documentation of the pets immunizations in case authorities question it.
I will say that the cat is a much better camping companion than most dogs we run across - so many people allow their dogs to bark-n-bark-n-bark till your ready to either shoot the thing or pack up and leave.

Got 3 cats, 3 dogs, 3 horses and 5 Cockatilles. They all stay home so we can enjoy some freedom. Our one son and fiance stay at the acerage while we are gone.

We've wondered the same thing. Recently got a Rag Doll. She has her claws so what worries me the most is her climbing the screen door. She's pretty clingy.

We have camped with our cat, Misty, for years. She travels well and adepts well to various campsites. In fact she travelled with us last year when we travelled 8,000 miles around the USA.

We enjoy having her with us and the looks we get from passing motorist.

We are full time RVers with two attitudinal felines, Thelma & Louise. They do fine. We crate them during travel & they do not go out side. We purchased a cabinet to put their litter pan in which doubles as a window seat so they can watch the birds.
