How can I make essential car trips tolerable for my cat?

When is the best time of the day to travel with my cat?

If you have to go on a car trip with your cat, travel at night or early in the morning when it’s coolest. Keep the car AC on, but make sure that the airflow actually reaches your car carrier. Lay a wet towel over your cat’s carrier if you must travel with your pet in the car during the day. Keep a spray bottle of cold water handy to wet your cat’s coat during necessary car trips. Fill the feed cups inside the carrier with crushed ice for extra cooling. Buy a small battery-operated fan to attach to the outside of your cat’s carrier and keep extra batteries on hand in case you need them


I'd also recommend putting a towel in the cat carrier, so your cat has something soft to lay down on. I'd also put a blanket or towel over the top of the cat carrier, so your cat can't look out. This will help calm him down, and help avoid your cat from getting car sick.
