If you travel and own a cat, you have a problem. If you leave your cat home, you’ll need to hire someone to take care of it and then you’ll still risk stressing out the cat if it misses its regular routine and your presence.

Yet if you take your cat with you, the cat might not like travel and get more stressed out as a result. So if you want to take your cat with you, you might consider sedating it with medication to calm it down during transit.

Just remember that every cat is different so some may enjoy traveling while others will not. Some cats can benefit from sedatives while others do not, so see what works for your cat and then do your best to keep your cat happy because that’s what being a cat owner is all about anyway.
