Default bringing cats to weekend home?

hi. i live in manhattan but just got a weekend home in upstate NY. my vet says she thinks it will be great for my 2 cats to come with as there will be a lot more room for them to play as well as tons of birds to watch outside (they're indoor cats and will remain so). does anyone have experience bringing their cats in the car on regular weekend trips?

How old are they? How do they do in a car?

If you are going to be going up there frequently, I would definitely try getting them used to traveling and coming with you. As I said in your other thread, it is not good for cats to be left alone so much.

Get feliway plug ins for both homes.

congratulations on your second home. What part of NY is it in?

I have two soft collapsable cat carriers with a removeable shearling mat that I keep next to each other in the corner of my bedroom. I keep them open so my two cats can go in and snooze when they want to. This way, they are use to the carriers. Some peopleonly bring the carriers out when they are taking their cat to the vet, and then they have a hard time getting the cat to go inside. Anyway, letting them get used to the carriers is a good first step.
