someone has posted that your cat is displaying separation anxiety- some kind of a "depression". And i wonder, maybe she's not really hungry at most times she's asking for food but maybe just like a human characteristic to resort to food when we are under depression (at least for some people like me lol)

Why don't you try free feeding her I have free fed all of my pets for many many year and iv'e never ever had an overweight pet. when they have food available to them all the time they soon adjust to only eating when they are hungry she may eat a bit more at first but she will get over that soon enough just a suggestion.

well i usually let my kitty sit in the front seat with me, if i put her in a carrier, she meows her sweet little head off, but i really believe the carrier is the safest way to go, it seems like you are doing the right thing dear. i am brand new on here, so a big meow! i am babette

I agree with getting a second cat to keep her company if you can. As for the carrier, my cats generally didn't like being inside of any moving object. It is too weird for them. Really the only thing that has worked in our situation for getting them over it is getting them used to it. take them with you in the car frequently and eventually it won't be so foreign or scary. Hope that helps.
