Your cat’s carrier should have a few important features: sturdy plastic, good ventilation, a front door, and a top that can be adjusted to lift your cat out of. A few days before your visit, place the open carrier in a quiet area where your cat enjoys spending time. Put clothing with your scent in it, along with soft bedding, and begin to put their favorite meals or toys in it. Gently rub a soft cloth around your cat’s face, and then rub that inside your cat’s carrier. This will make it smell like home.
