Do NOT sedate your cat.... Just use the Cat Carrier. Your cat will be fine in it.

Find a carrier that your cat feels comfortable in.

Car carrier for sure! More secure. If you're not sure how your cat will travel, ask your vet for a sedative to have on hand just in case. I traveled almost 15 hours straight with my two cats in carrier and gave them Kitty Xanax. They did great! Good luck!

Buy a pet carrier, plenty big for your cat AND a small cardboard box of kitty litter. Actually, its best if you get a dog crate, the type that's 2 pieces of formed plastic NOT open wire all around. From now until you move, leave the pet carrier open. Put a blanket or towel in the bottom of the carrier, and leave food in the carrier so your cat will start exploring in it. If you feed him in it and let him sleep in it, he will be more used to it and will smell like him.

When you move, set up the carrier by putting the box of litter in the back (preferably taped down with duct tape) and the towel he's been sleeping on in front. It is best to encourage the cat into the pet carrier with a little food. Don't feed him too much as he may get car sick. Close him in the carrier and put a blanket over the whole thing to make it dark inside.

Then put the carrier in your car (NOT the moving van!!!) in a seat so it'll be secure and he'll get plenty of fresh air. Be sure to stop every hour or so to offer him water.

Car carrier. Drape a towel or blanket over the sides. Rescue remedy in his water.
