Advice for traveling with cats
I'm moving from Boston to southern California in two weeks. I have to drive my car with my three cats and I will be alone. They have done the drive from Florida to Boston okay but this is longer.
I think they will be fine but my question is what to do when I need to take bathroom breaks. I will do it as quickly as possible, and I'm only talking the most urgent of human necessities and not a leisurely lunch. But obviously I don't want to leave my car running at a random rest stop but I also don't want to harm my cats.
Will they be ok in the shade/open windows for a few minutes? Just long enough to go to the bathroom? Has anyone dealt with this before? I don't really know what else to do. Flying isn't an option and I don't have anyone who can go with me. I hate to leave them alone in the car but I really can't think of any other options. This will be the end of August so it's still warm.
