Travelling with a Cat: My Equipment

“When travelling with a cat, there are some essential pieces of equipment you will need to take with you to make the experience as smooth as possible for both you and your pet. In this blog post, I’ll share with you the must-have items I pack when hitched up and ready to go on a road trip with my feline friend.” “My top recommended items include: ” A carrier that meets airline specifications Soft bedding or towels Litter box and litter scoop Food bowls Automatic water feeder/water bottle “”Travelling can be stressful enough without having to worry about whether or not all of your furry friend’s needs will be met while on the road. With just a little bit of preparation (and packing), however, any journey – long or short – can become an enjoyable one for everyone involved.”

A carrier that your cat is comfortable in and meets airline regulations

When travel with a cat, you will need an airline-approved carrier that both comfortable for your cat and meets all the regulatory requirements. There are many cat travelling backpack on our website, so make sure to do some research before purchasing one. You also want to acclimate your cat to the carrier well in advance of any upcoming trips.

Food/water dishes

When travelling with a cat, you will need to bring along food and water dishes. These can be any type of dish, as long as they are safe for your cat to use. You may want to consider bringing along an extra set of dishes in case one gets lost or damaged.

Litter box + litter

A must-have when travelling with a cat is, of course, a litter box and accompanying litter. If you’re using a new type of litter or material that your cat isn’t accustomed to, it’s best to make the switch gradually before hitting the road. Scoopable clumping clay litters are convenient and easy to find in most places; however, if you have multiple cats at home, non-clumping crystal litters may be preferable as they don’t track as much. Make sure to bring along enough liter for the duration of your trip – no one likes dealing with an unhappy kitty (or clean up).

Toys/scratching posts

If you’re planning on taking your cat with you on a trip, be sure to bring along their favorite toys or scratching posts. This will help keep them occupied and comfortable in unfamiliar surroundings.

Grooming supplies

When travelling with a cat, you should make sure to take along some grooming supplies. This will help to keep your cat looking and feeling their best. Some essential items include a brush, comb, shampoo and conditioner. You may also want to pack some nail clippers and wipes in case of any accidents.


I hope this has helped answer any questions you had about what equipment is necessary when travelling with a cat! I have everything from carrier to litter box to food and water dish. Some people also like to bring along toys and a scratching post, but that really depends on your individual cat’s needs. Overall, just make sure you’re prepared for the journey ahead by having all the right supplies on hand–your feline friend will thank you for it later!
