Moving with Pets:
Before moving your pet, take note of these reminders:
If you are traveling by car, acquaint your pet with car travel by taking it for short drives around the neighborhood. Do not feed your pet several hours prior to your trip. However, pack a canteen of fresh, cool water and stop frequently for drinks and walks. If you are staying overnight at a hotel, make sure pets are welcome beforehand.
Birds and small pets such as hamsters can travel by car in their cages, provided the cage is stable, properly ventilated and protected from drafts. Covering the cage may help keep your pet calm.
Finally, never leave an animal unattended in a car. Even in moderately warm weather, the temperature inside a car can reach 120 degrees in just a few minutes. Conversely, in winter months, the temperature in a car can drop well below freezing.
