Speak to the transportation people and check that the vehicle is well ventilated and insect proof. Provide enough food, water and toilet trays for your pet that might be required all along the journey. Also, talk to the veterinary about “motion sickness” for the cat and how could you handle it safely without causing too much of anxiety to the pet.
