How to accustom the cat to the carrier

For most cats, a carrier is an object of the devil!

In the video above, you can see a terrified cat that is panting almost as a dog has long been stressed.

Many cats just see the pet carrier run away terrified and to be able to put them in you have to sweat seven shirts and risk permanent scars.

If you have a cat that loves to slip into the carrier this post is not for you if instead, you are part of the other percentage of cat lovers, those for whom haul = cat demonic stop reading because I will reveal the tricks to make these scenes become only a distant memory.

Kittens don’t know what a pet carrier is, so if you have a puppy that has not yet been traumatized if it has an advantage.

Start using the pet carrier immediately like a kennel for when the cat is at home, remove the door and put in a nice soft pillow and even place it near the heater if it’s winter.

Every time your kitten goes to curl up in his new bunk, you stretch him a croquette, give him a nice caress and tell him he’s good.

You must know that teaching a cat is not very different from teaching something to a dog or to a small child, with coaxing and positive reinforcements all three learn great.

Coming back to us, from now on the pet carrier will become the kennel for all the days of your kitty when it is time to go out you will only have to show it to the carrier and as soon as it slips in, lengthen the usual crouching with Moina and caressing.

When you are out it is not the case that you tell him anything special, if he is quiet you can call him and give him another cracker every now and then. If it meows you are serene, do not panic but do not give it caresses or crouching to not strengthen its fear.

If he hears you and sees you calm he will calm down quickly and understand that there is nothing to fear in the exits.

If you have an adult cat that is already traumatized by the aforementioned pet carrier and as soon as he hears about it he is already beginning to do the devil four you will have to be more patient and begin to “circumvent him” in another way, now I’ll let you know immediately what you need to do…

First of all, get the old carrier out of the way and buy one of a completely different type.

If you had a rectangular type of plastic look for one of shape and possibly completely different material.

Fortunately, today we find all shapes and materials, for example, a beautiful and geared type is the wicker one, in fact, it is a little bulkier than the plastic ones but it looks like a kennel, just remove the door temporarily.

Now that you’ve changed the type of carrier, start using it as a doghouse, exactly as I explained earlier.

First of all, remove the bed that you had but keep the pillow inside.

Put the pillow that your cat already knows in the carrier, place the pet carrier without the gate right where its kennel was before and as soon as you see that it is intrigued and sticks its tac head, you put it inside, well at the bottom a juicy morsel (a small piece of cheese or wrestle) and as soon as it enters from the caresses and Moines.

Continue like this every time you see him enter the new bed.

It will take a little time but then you will see that you will also be able to put the door back in, close it and leave it in maybe 20-30 minutes without the stress coming on it.

When you can close it without making it shake you’re well underway.

Continue to always use the carrier as a kennel and when it is time to go out and turn the kennel into a carrier follow the instructions I gave before, that is: when you are out it is not the case that you tell him anything special, if he is quiet you can call him and give him another crunch every now and then.

If it meows you are serene, do not panic but do not give it caresses or crouching to not strengthen its fear.

If he hears you and sees you calm he will calm down quickly and understand that there is nothing to fear in the exits.
