When you are travelling to and from the cattery, make sure that your carrier is strapped in nice and safely. Don't let it roll around as it can be very distressing for them. Sometimes cats will like a blanket over the cage. This can be less distressing as well.
In the build-up, if you have a bit of a drive to the kitty hotel, why not start introducing the cat to the carrier first? Maybe putting it in the same room as the cat’s favourite room to start leaving some comfy blankets and the odd treat in there. If they want to go in for a nap, let them. It will only make the journey less worrying for them.
If you are having a lazy summer pottering around in the garden and want some company, why not plant some Catmint? It's easy enough to grow and cats love it!
If your cat is lighter in colour, be aware that sometimes they can be prone to sunburn, especially their ears! We recommend getting some cat safe sun block just in case. They will thank you for it!
One more tip, why not get an old towel and try running it under a tap and making it damp (not soaking!). If you lie this out in the shade, it will stay cool for them. If they want to lie down for a cool down this is a great place for them!
