There's just one thing to remember when traveling with animals.... if you are ever involved in a serious accident, your sweet beloved cat (or dog) will instantly become a flying object, and will likely hit the windshield before you do....and miss the airbags altogether. IMHO, keep your best friend secured in a carrier or a restraint of some sort to keep them safe. It's your responsibility. Would you do any less for your children???

Another reason for not leaving the cat in the trailer: our trailer can get pretty hot during the day in summer. I'm much more comfortable keeping Snowball in the truck with us with the A/C. We got a remote start installed that will allow us to keep the truck running up to 20 minutes with the doors locked for those inevitable bathroom breaks.

We use the remote start for occasional quick stops at fast food places. The truck is running and locked, but not moveable, so the cats are plenty safe. The remote start runs for 10 minutes and is extendable to 20 minutes which should be plenty of time to get our food and return to the truck.

If you leave the cats in the trailer, you should stay with them to make sure they are ok.

If you don't want to ride in the trailer, why would they want to?
