Where do your pets ride

As you can see from my sig file, we travel with our pets. In the past when towing we have had all of them, except the cat, riding in the TV with us. The cat doesn't want to know how he gets there.

I am curious where your pets ride when traveling. This next year we will have a longer vacation, and I am contemplating letting three of the birds ride in the trailer with the cat. The fourth bird and the dog really enjoy the view, so they will remain in the TV.

Our cocker spaniel rides in the rear seat of our crew cab between our two sons. He seems to get a little grumpy as I have heard growls come from back there as the ride grows long...actually, I think my 6 year old likes to tease him...I have told him time and time again he's gona get bit, and on the last trip he did, more than once and claimed he didn't do anything. Unfortunately, there is no other place for him to ride (the dog, not the son) and he loves camping so much, but I don't know what else to do with the kid except scold him and not the dog. I think the dog would be shell shocked if he road in the trailer when we reached the destination and, well it's illegal to put the kid back there!

Three birds and a cat riding back in the trailer alone???? Why doesn't this sound like such a good idea? My dogs ride up in the Toyota with us. It gets a little bumpy back in that trailer. What's you cat's name, "Lucky"?

Aww...yessss! Yet another vote for travel by motorhome. Our two dogs enjoy riding along. The oldest, a chocolate something climbs up onto the dog house (great name) so she can enjoy the view and a leg to rest her nose on.
The yellow something enjoys just curling up at the foot of the cockpit and waits for interesting stops and new places to pee.... he's all boy that dog.
As to cats and birds, if the birds are big enough the cat will know not to mess with them. My Macaw used to chase the cats... wings out, head down, beak open... hissing! Cats having infinite wisdom made lots of room for him.

Our Oakley rides on the front seat he likes to drive sometimes and Ms. Annie Mae the basset slumbers on the back seat, but she does like to have her paws over the seat looking out the front windshield. Gotta love our pets, ours always know they are going camping when we start to hook up the trailer.

The cat makes himself at home, and is relaxed when we arrive. He hates traveling in the Excursion, and his discharges are a testament to that. He is somewhat intimidated by the birds, and ignores them as only a cat can do. The birds on the other hand enjoy biting the cat's tail when they get the chance.

We had a DYH Amazon parrot, and once while we were at work she got loose and trashed the house. Came home to find her sleeping on the back of the rocking chair and had to search a while to find the cat hiding under the bed. Don't know exactly what went on that day, but the cat ran away and hid whenever the bird flapped her wings from then on!

Our critters all ride in the TV with us.

We took out the third row seat from the Expedition and kept Baron behind the second seat. He had plenty of room and his own door. Now with the Suburban we again removed the third row seats but now we have 2 dogs, so Orie went in the crate, (since puppies love to jump and fall all over, including onto my arms and lap when driving,) and Baron's "snoozy bed" went right along the side of it.

BTW, what does everyone use on their interior vinyl to remove toxic doggie drool? It seems to have an inherent quality to reappear after the cleaning product is dry and put back away!

The Gracie and Smokie (Avatar Dogs) ride in the back seat of the Tundra. They both wind up with their heads on top of the console between the seats and asleep after the first 30 miles. Bandit rides on my wife's lap most of the time. Bandit is 14 years old, totally deaf, 15 lbs and the boss.

My current cat doesn't travel...too much of a home body I reckon My last cat traveled in the truck cab with me. I put a crate on the floor, but she would also ride on the console. My last dog rode in the cab period, he would usually lay across the bench seat with his head on my leg. (long haired dacshund/border collie cross ) Best dog ever RIP. Curently no traveling pets unless you count the box turtle that I picked up a while back and let go

Our dog has a crate under the dinette in the MH. He rides in there when we are underway. The crate is small enough to fit under the dinette crosswise but still leave room to 2 to sit comfortably at the dinette!
