Expert Tips For Cats in the RV Lifestyle

We have 8 official tips for cats in the RV Lifestyle but have also included a few from our community, too. If YOU have some ideas, please add them to the comments.

Tip #1: RV Travel and Cats

It is a good idea to start out small with your feline furbaby. Cats can be sensitive to vibrations and engine sounds, so just keeping them in the vehicle while it idles in your driveway is a good place to start getting her acclimated.

Some cats take RV travel in stride, but others will react with a range of panic attacks that include mewling, frantic attempts to escape, and car sickness.

Soothe your cat with petting, soft reassurance, and offers of its favorite cat treats. It may take anywhere from a few minutes to weeks for her to accept her new surroundings, so be patient.
