Just as you bring a suitcase to hold your clothes, cosmetics and other travel essentials, your cat needs his own storage containers to carry all of the items he'll need while you're away. To conserve space, try to buy the smallest supplies possible, or use disposable items so you don't have to carry everything back home with you.
Cat storage essentials include:
- Food container (a small plastic bin or resealable Ziploc bags)
- Food and water dishes
- Bags to hold cleaning supplies, toys and blankets
- A binder or folder to hold your cat's medical records and health certificates
Once you reach your destination, your cat's carrier may be a good place in which to consolidate and store all of these items.
