Our cat is 20 years old and probably would not want to take on camping. When I went thru chemo she logged a lot of hours at the foot of my bed. My doctor was afraid of her scratching me but that never happened. She follows me everywhere and I love her dearly.

We took our 18 year old cat for the first time this week. She had to have a growth removed so needs bandages changed daily. She seemed right at home and gave us no problems.

We have 3, so have always had a pet sitter watch all of them when we travel. I'm not sure how 3 in the trailer would be. Does anyone else travel with several cats?

I'm a dog person myself. Some CG's around here specially have signs saying no cats allowed. There are a lot of dogs in the park though. I guess they don't want any problems.

Install a cat door on the pass thru wall from the bedroom,put the litterbox in the storage compartment and kitty has his or hers private facilities. No more mess in the bathtub. You can even open the compartment hatch,install a removeable screen and they have their own patio.

We full timed with 2 cats in our Jayco fiver covering 44 states back in 92-94 during what we called our sabatical. One was 5 and one 12. They loved it and also were a great help in determining what was outside our 5th wheel at night! When they ran from the screen door we made sure we had a campfire if we sat outside to look at the stars.

Currently have 3 siamese one is 1yr, and (2) are 11 yr olds... and they love to camp. We modified the washer/dryer area for the litter box, for privacy... complete with carpet to help contain the litter and a 12 volt light so clean up is easy. They ride in our fiver and seem comfortable enough and look forward to treats and fresh water when we stop for fuel....meeting us "at the door".

I saw a great screened in cat porch last time out. It unfolded to 6 feet long and 24" x30" that the owner set up on saw horses and then connected to the basement which he modified to connect to the living area. The 2 cats could go and come as they wanted to and of course it had a vinyl roof to keep the sun and rain out. Saw them enjoying their cat naps on their porch. I'm going to come up with a plan to do the same thing!

Just got back from our first trip and our Maine Coon's first trip. She seemed to really have a good time and was totally relaxed in the TT. Only problem we had was the ride there and back. Seems she gets carsick and the nausea makes her drool pretty seriously. She did better on the way home so we are hoping her tummy will grow accustomed to riding in the truck the more we take her. Would be interested to hear if anyone else has a cat prone to carsickness and, if so, do you have anything that helps?

My vet gave me a tranquilser for our cat that worked well. Doesn't knock them out - just helps relax them. He recommended it because of our cats being carsick when going anywhere. They don't camp with us.
