I put a cat door in one of the sliding doors in my Classic 25 because our one cat, whichever side she was on, it was the wrong side according to her and she complained loudly. Our short tailed cats liked the pet door, but our long-tailed munchkin didn't like it catching his tail every time.

I had to look all over to find a cat door thin enough to slide into the pockets.

Cat-proofing new Airstream

We'll be full timing with 3 older cats and curious what others have done to discourage marking. In July we're picking up a 2017 Flying Cloud 25' so they'll be helping us break it in.

Does anyone have experience with sprays or other solutions to keep them from marking and making the Airstream "their own"?

We've found items like this online so maybe someone in the Forums has used this or something like it:

Thanks!

Travel,

Are you sure these are traveling cats ?
There was never any 'marking' with Natasha. She had her cardboard 'scratcher' in the floor, a few play mice, her bag of catnip and her grey 'rat' from petsmart. She loved that 'rat' . It rode in the truck with her.

No Marking.
Our non-traveling cat likes the 'Feliway' for trips to the vet, but our nieces calm her the most on those short trips.
Yeah, you have to make sure the cat likes to travel. I don't know about forcing the issue, if they don't want to.
Best regards

None of our current 3 cats "like" to travel, but they all seem to really enjoy the Airstream. The pecking order seems to change away from home and all three get along famously.

Now that the Classic 28 is gone and I have an Interstate, we will leave two cats at home and travel with just my Pixie-Bob. Too tight quarters for more than one cat.

Our cat started traveling with us the day we got her. She was in the next county. We went out to look and brought her home. We had a cat kennel with an old towel and a couple of kitty toys. She talked to us all the way home, but apparently enjoyed the ride. As long as we had the S&B whenever her kennel appeared int he living room she would get in it, and then yell at us if we didn't immediately head out!

We're now in a DP and as soon as I start the Detroit she starts looking for her kennel. She has always been an indoor-only cat, so pet doors aren't necessary.

It's day one of Romeo's first trip. He's 9 years old and has always been an indoor kitty. We had him spend time in the trailer at home before this trip. So far he's doing great.
He did scare us today when we came back with groceries and could not find him. Finally found him under the sink. He seems calmer since he now has a hiding spot.

Good deal. Do you have a cardboard scratching box? Natasha always liked those in the AS. Relieved stress I believe.

Safe travels

Might need to get something like that. He's still doing well except he seems to be bored and somewhat restless. He moves around a lot and I don't think he's sleeping much. But he is eating and using his litter box.

Cat #1 we took camping and he got loose. I saw a white line on neighboring MH; his rope. The cat had climbed up the wheel and got on top of motor and wound around the spark plug wires. The neighbor was thankful we found him and removed the cowling to get the cat loose. Never again did he go.
Cat #2 at the mention of camping, she hid somewhere in the house. We had tried to get her in the TT at times but to no avail.
We miss our cats, but finding someone to take care of them is PITA or $$$$$.

We have people to come feed him but he just hates being left alone so we decided to try this. We laughed at him yesterday when we parked because he seemed confused that the view from the trailer was different.

We travel with a cat and she wouldn't have it any other way.
She is most comfortable when on route to be in a travel cage that Tracy has on her lap.
She knows when there is a trip coming and she hovers around the front door so she won't be left behind. She will actually crawl into the carry cage by herself if it is left open by the front door.
Maggie who is 17 has also figured out the slide on the screen door and will open it from the back of the dinette seat and hop out to join us if we are outside.
Also she likes to help keep the dog clean😊Click image for larger version
