Feline Fun Friday – Cats in Cars

Most household cats have experienced the dreaded car ride. Not all cats hate car rides, but for most cat owners who must take their cat to the veterinarian or who move to a new location with a cat struggle physically and emotionally with issues around transporting their cat.
