How to train your cat to love its cat cage
Cats often hate travelling to the vet. Lets face it, cats hate anything which interrupts them spending the day lying around, eating and generally living the good life.
This Video from the Catalyst Council has some tips to make trips to the vet less stressful.
Cairns Vet does recommend all cats come to the vet in a cat carrier/cage. A cat that is carried into a vet clinic can panic when it sees, hears or smells other animals, wheras they feel safe and protected in a cat cage.
This is made clear when we finish seeing a cat at a consult: clients always comment that the cat hides when they see the cage at home, but then they happily jump straight back into the cage when its time to go home: they know the cage is the "taxi" to get back to kitty heaven.
