    I would never suggest such a thing. I'm only providing alternatives for when those things struggle.

    Rabbit cage might be an option. When the cat poops it falls below the cage part into the pan on the bottom.

    when my sister moved from town with her fiance, my brother and i did the stupidest thing. we agreed to "watch" her cats until she could figure out transportation. four freakin cats. FOUR!

    as she drove away blissfully in the moving truck, i told my brother, "i think we now own four cats".

    fuckit if i wasnt correct. she initially sent $$ to help pay vet bills and food bill cost (we are younger and were both still in school) but the money dried up. we had those cats for years!! she even quit asking about them. like they were always ours.

    so let me ask? do you have any younger dumber siblings? does your GF?

    Sweet ones.
    Aficianado - haha it was considered leaving them with my younger sister who already has a small farm (2 cats, 2 dogs, 3 pigmy goats, 14 hens, and 2 roosters).

    But alas, we brought them with us in the truck. Put their litter box on the floor behind the passenger seat and they used it perfectly fine. They would bitch in the carriers until we opened them and then they'd explore for 2 minutes then lay back down. Actually slept most of the trip (imagine that). We took them out for walks occassionally to get some energy out but they made it no problem. Plus we are very happy to have them out here with us now. It would have been such a pita to fly them.

    Glad it ended well. I have taken cats on short trips (< 5 miles) and considered throwing the crazed beasts out the window both times. (No, I wouldn't actually do that but they drove me NUTS).

    Stonewall Jackson, '96 Xtracab, rebuilt motor
    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.
    When we moved from Newport News back to Chesapeake (30 miles or so) it was all seven of us in a tiny Ford Festiva (illegal as hell) with all six of our cats and our little dog at the time loose in the car with us. It was HELL. :D Fatboy was good- he just sat there and stared at us. The other ones all flipped shit. We all got scratched to hell, especially by Holly Hodgemonster and Wild Gaptos. No cat accidents though!
