If you let your cat wander around the car while you are driving, what do you ..
Thanks a bunch for all these helpful tips! I'm about to move to my hometown which is about 500km away from the city (a steady 4-5 hour drive, I reckon). My cat has never travelled long distance and she is NOT good in cars. I am very nervous about the road trip, albeit a short one. Especially when it's going to be me driving alone with my cat, in a moving car. I have tried my best to keep her routine as normal as can be. I locked her in the bathroom with her bed and toys when the movers came to pack and load our belongings. When she finally came out of the bathroom and saw an empty house, she seemed freaked out a bit. Her cat condo is gone, so was her favourite armchair. She looked lost. She wouldn't leave me out of her sight while I cleaned the apartment. I was so stressed out by her reaction. And now I'm stressing out over the upcoming road trip. Wish me luck!
The technology for autonomous long distance trains differs greatly from the technology for autonomous metro-trains and subways which already operate in many cities of the world. In the latter case, most of the intelligence for autonomous driving is embedded into the railroad infrastructure and a centralized controller that is in constant communication with all trains; the trains themselves, in contrast have little intelligence; they don’t operate autonomously. This approach is not viable for long-distance networks because upgrading thousands of kilometers of the network with controllers and sensors would be much to costly. Therefore most of the intelligence has to be embedded within the locomotive. Fully autonomous long distance trains therefore need to be equipped with sensors and algorithms that are very similar to those used in self-driving cars.

A skittish feline on a long car or airplane ride can make your travels more stressful during and after arrival. The ASPCA recommends sticking to your cat's routine while traveling — from feeding schedules to bathroom breaks or playtime.This Summer I am planning to drive from the UK to Switzerland with a dog and two cats! I'll be driving over in my large estate car so space will not be an issue. The dog should be reasonably straightforward however the cats will need some thought. How do you tackle feeding, watering and their toilet needs? They will need to be sedated for the journey however how else can you keep them quiet and comfortable? Does anyone have experience of driving with cats over a long distance in Europe?Cats in general are not fond of car trips, and even those kitties that enjoy car rides may get restless on a long drive. Driving long distances can be trying enough without your furball yelling at you the entire way. Check with your vet about sedating your cat for the journey. Kitty will sleep peacefully, and you’ll have a much quieter trip. adds a host of additional costs and considerations. It's definitely cheaper to drive with a pet; you use the same amount of gas whether your dog or cat is with you or not. However, the hassles of driving long distance with a pet may outweigh the cost of a plane ticket. You can choose to drive and book a flight for your pet, or bring your pet on the plane with you.
