Traveling with your Cat
A Guide by Chrysoberyl
Of course, just toys are not enough to keep a worldly cat like
me totally pacified, so my humans sometimes scavenge enough money to take
me places. My first trip, besides frequent trips to grandma's house,
was to The
Old Stagecoach Inn, which is conviently by
Ben & Jerry's, one of my mother's
favorite places. They were very nice about letting my parents come with me,
and have great window views!
A few notes for fellow travelers:
Make sure the place you are visiting doesn't discriminate against cats
Be sure the travel time is not unreasonable
an appropriate carrier - I love my
Dogloo Furrari 250!
Bring necessities: litter box, litter, toys, scratching post
- my Arubacat 20"
floor model travels nicely
sure you wear proper identification
at all times
verification of your vaccinations
sure your humans cat proof the room you are staying in!
sure your humans locate the
closest vet - I hate them, too, but sometimes one needs one
all - mind your manners so you don't ruin it for the rest of us!

We also went
Dana Place Inn on my parents first anniversary. They have walking/ski
trails right on the property, so I was able to take my humans out on a leash!
What fun! The trails were extra fun because I could tell right where to go,
but Mom and Dad held me up some. I only wish we lived closer! They are even
right near the Lupine factory,
so it is easy for humans to find quality
clothes for us! My parents liked be close to so many hiking and mountain
biking trails, the Inn is right at the base of Mt. Washington!
For their second anniversary we went to
Isaac Randall House Bed & Breakfast in Freeport, Maine. The Pine room was a
home away from home - my parents especially enjoyed the tub. There were several
areas to walk around the B & B, but my parents never let me make the short
walk into Freeport with them. On our way home we stopped at
Wolfe's Neck State Park
- I loved it so much we went back this year.
This year we went to a bed and breakfast farther up the Maine coastline, but didn't
enjoy ourselves quite as much as the two previous years. Although they had a lot of
gardens, I had to constantly be on the lookout for their three cats. The room was small
and just wasn't as wonderful as we have become accustomed to. Still it was a good trip
and I managed to convince them to stop at
Wolfe's Neck State Park again on the way home.
