When downsizing from our Kentucky home to our RV, we knew we’d have lots of challenges ahead. But those challenges become a whole other ball of yarn when it’s come to RVing with cats. From where to put the litter box to finding their favorite napping spots in our RV, we had to re-learn it all. We had to figure out how to accommodate their needs as well as create an environment where we all can survive. We’re living proof that you can RV with cats and want to share our experiences on the road as full-time RVers.
An RV or camper can get hot really fast in the summer. So, it’s important to take certain safety precautions when leaving your pet alone in your motorhome or towable RV when you leave your RV to go exploring. But the question is how do you keep your pets cool and comfortable when it’s the hot outside?
Anyone who owns a cat knows if you don’t provide a place for your mini lions and tigers to scratch, your furniture will be one big heaping mess of ripped up remnants. I don’t know if its just luck or that we’ve just been good forceful cat parents that we’ve not had furniture issues. It might be because we’ve always had the biggest, most badass cat climbing towers known to man. Okay, maybe not ‘that’ badass but our resident mousers sure loved it.
Most RVers who travel on the road full-time have pet companions. They are very much a part of our journey. We take them everywhere. Whether tethered on a leash, huddled quietly in a cat carrier or sitting on the back of the driver’s seat, they love the adventure as much as we do. They wanna go too! However, when they get sick or injured, our wheels oftentimes come to a screeching halt. We must learn to shift gears and seek a different road or…just slow down.
