cat carriers and "difficult" cats
Posted 03 February 2011 - 06:49 PM
I do leave the carrier out and she sleeps in it Maybe that is why she is not afraid of it? Perhaps you could leave it in the house for a couple of days and let the cat check it out.

I have one of the carriers that is 2 pieces and you can take the top off. Cheaper than the ones that have the door on the top. We take the top off, throw her in, and screw the pegs back in.
I have a huge 5" long scar down the inside of my arm, right near the vein. Looks like I tried to slit my wrist She did that about 1 month ago for our last vet visit. Hoping the Vitamin E oil will help.

Also, I think the key is to find one that is not much bigger than they are. they like small spaces, so it might be less scary if they are not moving about.

he hid behind a couch for a full two hours after that!
he really hates that thing.
i did a bunch of research today and i think i'm getting this one:
it opens on top and at the side. it got the best reviews on petco.com. it's kind of spendy but i have 4 cats so i can justify it

it was a LOT easier when i could use treats to trick them but they learned all about that when Z started going to the vet so often.

it has the door on top of it which i really like - so much easier to get them out when we get there!

Tuna and Henri don't particularly care for the carrier, but when we have to bring them to the vet, they go in (with a little force )

well, that went ok. he hated it when i put him in a banged around. he even cut his poor little nose a little
once we got to the vet, he was so scared! he clung onto me like a baby monkey
soooo glad we only have to do that once a year!
Awww! (((baby monkey)))
