Frequently Asked Questions About Cat Car Accessories

What are the best car accessories for cats?

The best cat car accessories will keep your cat safe and comfortable on trips and protect your car from messes and damage. Look for cat travel carriers that can be fastened securely in your vehicle and other car accessories suited to your cat's temperament and habits. Some cats may be able to travel in open cat car seats or travel hammocks, but most will do better in a fully enclosed carrier. Cat carriers are usually the safest choice for car travel, too.

What cat car accessories should I buy to keep my cat safe and comfortable?

You should buy fully enclosed car accessories to keep your cat safe and comfortable. Properly secured soft or hard-sided carriers are usually best because they provide maximum protection in case of a hard stop or accident. They also help give your kitty a sense of security and comfort while you are on the road. Leash-trained cats may be able to ride in open car seats or car hammocks, but you will need to use a leash and harness car restraint to properly secure them in the car for safety.

Do cats like car seats?

Some cats like car seats, but they are not recommended for cats who are not leash trained or accustomed to travelling in cars. Many cats become frightened on car rides, so securing them in an enclosed travel carrier is usually the best choice. If your kitty is leash trained and has a calm temperament during travel, you may be able to use a car seat for short trips. Just be sure to properly secure the seat—and your cat—on every trip.
