I took my cats on vacation one year. It was a 4-1/2 hour drive. Stanley
was fine. Sugar was extremely car sick. Once we got up there, Sugar hid

family. Stanley was fine. He was like a dog - just adapted to any
The trip back was another nightmare of puking, drooling and pooping in the
car. Personally, I wouldn't do it again unless the cat liked to travel.
I completely sympathize with you. That's why I don't go anywhere.
