Cats Need Breaks like we Do – When your kitty is taking a nap while driving then you obviously don’t need to stop. However, know that when you do make pit stops you should be prepared to make these stops a little bit longer. Your cat will likely need to be fed. He or she is most likely thirsty and they may need to go to the bathroom. And one important note here. Patience. Give your kitty time to do everything and provide as much comfort as you can. Park in a spot that has some shade. Give your cat all the time they need to do what they need to do.
