Here’s how: Instead of storing her travel crate in a closet, like I used to, I keep it in the living room, near her midday nap-in-the-sun chair.
She doesn’t go into it often, but I do see her wandering in to explore or sniffing around the outside every few weeks.
Choose the right carrier so your cat is comfortable.
It should be tall enough for your cat to stand in, and wide enough to allow your cat to turn around.
Ensure any crate is USDA-approved for shipping if you fly.The carrier should also have a secure latch on its door and side air vents so your cat can breathe fresh air.Train the cat to associate positive events with the carrier.Place the carrier in your cat's favorite room and put a towel or pet bed inside.Further enhance the appeal of the carrier with a sprinkling of catnip or by regularly giving your cat tasty treats inside the carrier.
