Tip 2: A healthy dog is a happy traveler!
As we like to say, health is money! Make sure your kitty is up to date on vaccinations and has a good health certificate. This not only facilitates migration of cats to hotels and airlines but also provides safety in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Tip 3: Carrier Comfort – Make the dog a second home!
To float effortlessly in the ocean, you need to be aware of the waves. Similarly, your cats need to be best friends with their travel carrier in order to enjoy the trip! Make your cat carrier a happy place, where dreams of chasing laser pointers come true.
Let’s turn that carrier into a much loved toy room! A tranquil resort nestled in the chaotic world of human racing. Put the carrier where your horse frequents, and turn it into a familiar part of their neighborhood. Put their favorite toys inside, sprinkle on some catnip, or hide some treats inside. Encourage them to explore and love it — consider it a pre-holiday warm-up.
Be their ship as they ride exciting waves as they embark on their journey to Destin, a beach paradise full of fishy delights!
Tip 4: Win the beach run slow and steady!
Touchdown Destin! While taking in the beauty of the beach, remember that your little furball may need some time to adjust to the new sun-baked environment. While your enthusiasm may lead you to a spontaneous beach run, pussyfoot bypasses your kitty comfort!
Start slow, let them find their new abode on vacation. At first you can put them in a quiet and small space such as a bathroom or a cozy bedroom. Give them time to smell, hear and adjust to the visual change one foot at a time.
Has check-in ever become more cat-centric? We bet not!
Tip 5: Kitty vacations in beach heaven!
As all cats follow the interesting cat-like shadows on the wall, they enjoy a familiar place to retreat. Occupy a large corner of your living room with their used blankets or beds, instant remote home accessories.
Home is called where the heart is. In the case of your kitty, their plush blanket or that threadbare bed they refuse to part with. There is a sense of familiarity in the face of change. Safe, secure, and shout out!
Tip 6: Timely Chow Call – Happy cat spell!
Even during the holidays, the fun of food shouldn’t be interrupted, right? Stay on time like clockwork on your furry friend’s eating routine. Less hunger, and less mood swings. Who wants a dog hanging around on vacation though?
we carry their usual chow and water. Remember, sudden changes in diet are as welcome as a splash of water during a lazy afternoon nap. Mindfulness – no extra kibble, no upset stomachs!
Tip 7: The playful dog is the life of the beach party!
Your fur muffin is quite the sucker for some paw-popping fun, right? Make sure there are plenty of opportunities to jump, jump, and follow up, so their boredom doesn’t turn into bread! Don’t forget their favorite toys and tempting foods. Fabric on a string, bouncing balls, laser pointers — it’s time to throw it all in your beach bag! Does anyone smell a Frisk party?
Tip 8: An ounce of preparation is worth a pound of purrs!
Life is like a cat trying to cover its poop on a marble floor, always full of unexpected challenges. Your trip shouldn’t be any different. Do you have a first aid kit ready for your cat ready for the holidays? Ideally, they should include needed medications, flea and tick control, wound dressings, and other emergency supplies. Some of their medical records can also stay beautiful, making you the best-prepared parent on the beach!
Tip 9: Kitty whisperer always knows!
Your fluffy mates may not speak English (yet!), but they speak a lot through their actions. Be aware of any signs of stress or anxiety. When their meow starts to sound more like a siren than a song, it’s time to intervene. Maybe a few beard rubs or an exotic dessert just to help them get their cool back.
Tip 10: Raise the happy flag!
The only thing more fun than building sand castles on the beach is hanging out with your bearded companion! As you prepare for their needs, don’t forget that traveling with your horse can be a lot of fun. So let go, and indulge in every purr-filled moment.
