Almost all of our cats are very good at being in a carrier and going to the vet, who is only 5-10 minutes away. I leave a carrier out at all times, and cats use it as a hiding place or bed. About an hour before going to the vet, I do a quick spray of Feliway into the carrier! They all love to pile in there, and I have to take them out so that the real patient can go (quite happily!).

I think it is the noise the car makes. I have found that driving over 50 mph sets them off. Homey talks all the way (15 miles). She says nooo way! Under 50mph, they are all calmer so I set the cruise and allow enough time to get there in time. ---- Lorrie <felineres...@frontier.com> wrote: > On 06-10, Pam Norman wrote: > > Do you all have your FeLeuk kitties seen by your regular vets? > > I don't take my FelV cats for checkups unless they are sick. > The stress they feel when put in a carrier and taken to the > vet is very bad for FelV cats.
