Hehe. When I have to take Posh out I put the box out for her and often she'll climb in and go to sleep, not knowing what's to come, muahahah!

The first time Beckham went in the car was an8 hr drive and he howled all the way to Chicago (3 hrs).

My cat has been on way too many loooong car trips to be bothered much by getting in the carrier anymore. She's pretty cooperative. Now getting her to be quiet inside....It takes four hours to drive across the state of Alabama, but it feels like an eternity with a howling cat in your car. She's much improved from that trip, though.

Still hoping that Cricket will be ok.

I read that if you put the carrying case out the night before kitty needs to get in it, leave the latch open, put a favorite blankie and some catnip inside, kitty will crawl in and get used to the idea of it. I tried it once and the next morning my cat, normally terrified of the carrying case, was sleeping inside it and I just quietly closed the latch and off we went to the vet without a peep. It only worked that one time, though. Cats aren't fools, y'know. Now it's back to the back-him-in with a quick gentle shove method.

My carrier is always out. It's like a little home for them

sicy, that cat carrier is adorable. i don't have a cat carrier, actually, i always borrow my mom's if i need to bring a kittie to the vet. where'd you get yours? although first i need to look into getting one of those litter boxes where it scoops out the poop for you. (dolemite's stopped pooping on the floor, but i still think it'd be a good idea as i've never seen two cats shit so much!)

cydewaze, good luck with cricket! i'll be keeping my fingers crossed that it's nothing serious.

That is such great news!

I got the carrier at Pet Club but I'm sure most pet stores have them. It was almost 50 bucks though. Yeah I spoil my cats

You think that's bad, I have at any one time 15-20 different snackie treats for my dog Zeke. Not only that, but when I go to the treat/vet supplies cupboard, he will take what I hand him and if it isn't exactly what he wants he'll put it on the floor and look at me like "what else do you have?" And he'll continue that until he has six or eight different types of treats, and then he has his own little doggie treat buffet.

That's great about the bloodwork, but what is wrong with her eye???

to the bloodwork being normal.

It's always a struggle getting Mia in her carrier. I put her toys in there to make it less traumatic, but she knows where she's going when I get it out. Then I have to hear her meowing the entire drive there! Heaven help me if I ever have to go on a long trip with her!

The logo says "PETsMART" so I believe it's meant to be taken either way (or both).

I'm due to talk with the vet today, so we'll see what he says about the eye.

No can do. He is my little (well not so little any more....) man. The funniest thing is that he sits up on his haunches when playing with a string and his paws are so big they actually make a clapping sound when he grabs it. Great cat.

His brother is a bit of a wuss though - really only likes my wife.
