Cat Carriers and Your Cat

Many cat owners have a hard time getting their cat into the carrier.  Sometimes this can be so difficult that it can even keep the cat from making regular visits to the veterinarian.  It is important for your cat to be in a carrier during any trip in the car, for the cat's safety as well as your own.  Regular visits to the veterinarian are the best way to give your cat a long and healthy life, so getting your cat used to being in the carrier and riding in the car is one of the most important things you can do for him.
Below is a video from the Catalyst Council with tips on choosing the proper carrier for your cat, training your cat to tolerate the carrier, and to remain calm during car rides.
