A cat in my car
 
So the lady and I are picking up a.... Dare i say it here......a cat.... in two weeks and i have to say, as excited as i am to have a cat in my life again....i cant even comprehend letting him in the prestine backseat of my car at the moment. I already bought a pet hammock for the back seat which basically grabs onto the front and rear headrests and completely covers the seats except for the doors. Im worried about the kitten gouging the leather there.

Our intention is to use the wifes car as the primary transport as its a 89 chevy which imo is a heap. But there may be occasions when i have to take the little guy in my car. Anyone here have a car and want to share their ideas/cautions?

I regularly have my girlfriends two pomeranians in the car. She made a heavy duty seat cover for the back seat. I'm not sure if the leather in the spec B is the same (I assume it would be) but it seems pretty resilient and least to fairly dull dog claws. Declawing the cat would be a big help lol. Biggest pain for me is constantly cleaning up the fur.

I usually ride my chocolate lab in the backseat. Hair is everywhere, but the leather is safe.

Get a cat carrier (cage). Unlike a dog, a cat (free to roam) will be all over the car, exploring and getting into mischief.

Remember, you can call a dog, but a cat will just take a message.

Get some bath towels and lay them on the seat, but, it's a cat. It will probably hop on your dash and sleep on your steering wheel.

When I bring my pal on trips, he sits in my lap an stares out the window.

whenever i transport my animals, i tie them up and put them in the trunk. that way they can't move or ruin my pristine interior.

Cats are illegal to transport out of a cage in some states b/c they pose a hazard to proper pedal operation during hazard or avoidance maneuvers

bmx045 11-03-2011 08:04 AM

Tinting tail lights is also illegal in most states.

Cats claws are like razor blade compared to a dog's claws, so I wouldn't transport them in the car without a carrier. When I bring my pussies to get groomed, I place them each in their own carrier, facing each other in the hatch area of the wagon.

Letting a cat roam free in the car is a recipe for disaster, and doesn't make you an animal person, but rather an idiot. IMHO of course.
