Hi we travel with 2 cats and 2 dogs. We have their scratching post from the house, their litter box (by shower), toys and their beds.
They travel pretty good but tend to hide under the couch if someone comes by. Cisco will come lay on the dash on the passenger side for awhile and Ali the other cat will curl on on the bed.
They do like to look out the windows sometimes when travelling but not always.
They love to sit in the window at new places and see out.
MAKE SURE they have collars with id on and micro chip is even better.
YOU MUST CAT PROOF LITTLE SPOTS - by slides etc to make sure they arenèt hiding in their when you put your slides out. Mine hide behind the couch which is great as I can watch them and hubby can put the slide out.
Crating works well if they donèt mind the crates -- but cats are like us and need to be able to stretch.
Bear in mind they are marvelous escape artists and will dash outside if given the chance. Ours are harness trained plus we have an outdoor cat run for when we are set up.
Will look forward to the pictures of divider but fear you may find it more nuisance than help.
