Ready, Set, Go!
Air travel is stressful, there's no way around that. But to minimize your cat's anxiety, open your airline-approved carrier a few days early, add a towel, toys and treats, and let kitty get accustomed. To avoid tummy trouble, no food for 6-8 hours before the flight. Water is fine, but skip the tranquilizers, unless she's really freaking out and may hurt herself.
