Kitty Kars

All right, what’s the secret? How do you get the cat to stay in the car?

This question has stumped mankind for thousands of years. Or would have, if they’d had cars back then. But as Ramses IV once said, “How d’ya get the freakin’ cat to stay in the chariot?”

  1. What I find fascinating Is that the cats obviously enjoy riding on something that moves. When I was a child, riding in a car was one of my favorite things to do. Dogs hang their heads out the window and take in the fresh air. Cats seem to like things a bit more calm and slow, but they obviously love going for a ride.

    I loved that red Mercedes roadster RC car.

    1. I was about to say, “What planet did you come from?” I’ve never had a cat who did *not* freak out in the car. Poor Buster practically declawed himself, trying to break out of the carrier: he had to sit on my lap the rest of the way–and that was *coming home* from the vet’s.

      All the dogs in my family loved being in the car. All the cats have hated it. The rats were very well-behaved in the car and my iguana’s calmness was an inspiration to a person who later became mayor of our town and had a gift for falling out of boats.

    2. My cat is fine with riding in my pickup. You must not be doing it right. Ask Joe Collidge; that should be entertaining. 🙂

      Seriously, my cat is fine with riding. She sniffs around for a minute, then curls up and enjoys the ride. We went for a short ride just yesterday and she settled right in. When we go to the vet’, about 35 miles away, I let her roam free and keep a carrier on the seat just in case. I always setup a little litter box for her, too.

      Maybe it’s time to buy a Toyota. Cats appreciate quality. 🙂
