Would driving my cat to college make her unhappy? How would I go about putting her in the car for 8 hours?
But for the second year, I'll be getting an apartment.
My university is an 8 hour drive away from home. Kitty hates car rides, even short ones. My parents won't take care of her for more than 2 years for sure, so I have two options:
1) Bring my cat in the car when I'm driving to and from college for summer and winter vacation (that's 4 8-hour trips every year)
2) Transfer to a university closer to my house after 2 years
Or, the third option, which really isn't an option,
3) Let my parents give her up
I'd prefer #1 by far, but only if there was a way to make her okay with the travel. Is there any humane way of bringing a cat along in a car without causing any distress? I know that the last 2-hour drive we had with her, she acted funny for a week.
