Question by Kate-Ann: Is it true that cats don’t like being in their cat carriers?
I’m planning on getting 2 American Shorthair kittens.
I was watching Cats 101 and some of the owners were saying how their cats can’t stand to be in their cat carrier.
I also read in the Cat Encyclopedia that cats hate being in their cat carriers.
Is it true that cats don’t like being in their carriers?
Will cats put up a good fight when it comes time for them to be in their carriers?
Will I have to bribe the cats with treats and food to get them to into their carrier?
Answer by Kat
Cats are strange creatures, and most prefer to do their own thing. Of course, to them, doing their own thing does not consist of having their human putting them in a small jail.
Many cats will sprawl out their legs to block the entrance as you try to put them in it.
The best way to do it is to turn the crate so that that door is facing up, towards the ceiling. Take your cat, put him/her foot first, and hold its two front legs together while lowering them in the crate.
Hope this helps!
