Hey folks, I'm flying to Minneapolis on Saturday, a 2.5 hour flight from LIttle Rock, and taking a sweet, energetic young Siamese kitty to his owner. Kitty will ride in the cabin with me. I've never taken a kitty on board with me before, so a new experience. The vet gave me a sedative,

I have never heard of ACE, but did have a friend who used Benadryl to transport a cat in the cabin of an airplane. She had to give it pretty early before the flight, but the cat was apparently OK during the whole flight (2-3 hours). Don't know the dose though, so I would check with your

Good suggestion Tad! Depending on how much time you have you can also start feeding in the carrier to get her used to feeling safe in there. Nina Tad Burnett wrote: Can you let kitty spend some time in the carrier at home, in and out to get used to it... Then a couple short trips in the car

I would not drug a cat before flying, especially not without a FULL medical workup (including a heart ultrasound). Cats are just as affected by pressure and altitude changes as humans are, and any drug given will have a much stronger effect in the air. This sometimes can lead to medical issues.

And the short car ride could be to a Kentucky Fried Chicken which would be placed near the carrier on the way home and shared at home thus the carrier / car ride become something to look forward to next time.. Tad Nina wrote: Good suggestion Tad! Depending on how much time you have you can
