For most cats, the only time they are ever in a car is when they are placed in a carrier and taken to the veterinarian where they are examined.
Prepare your cat to go for a car ride. Make sure your cat has current identification ID tags and microchip, when traveling. Be sure your cat is in a carrier this is for your cat's safety and yours.
Have your cat acclimated to the carrier before the car ride. Bring the carrier out a few days ahead of time so that your cat can become acclimated to it. Leave the door of the crate open so that the cat can explore as it pleases. Put the catnip and favorite treats inside the carrier. Avoid treats if your cat has to go to the vet for testing. Drive the cat around the block and let your cat get acclimated to riding in the car. Reward your cat after the ride with a treat. Always want to make it a positive experience for your cat and the cat will associate that experience with the car rides.
