LOL my younger cat is like that. She’s torn out her claw, scratched me good, and peed in carriers until I finally just stuck her in a harness and carried her to the car. She doesn’t enjoy that, but she mostly just cries. The other one is like, “Eh, whatever.”

Hah…

Getting my kitty in the carrier is a HUGE task as well. It turns into a violent rush of shoving her in and closing the door as quickly as possible. Then she cries aaaaaall the way to wherever we’re going.

@StL.Ashley:  This made me laugh 🙂  Damn cats they are such jerks sometimes. I am very lucky that all 4 of mine are easy to get in the carrier. Your Rico is very cute!

@StL.Ashley:  I learned a loonnngggg time ago that my cat and the carrier would NEVER get along.  So, I do what any other crazy cat lady would do….show up with my cat on a harness and leash.  True story.  I get lots of weird looks and a few giggles, but it sure beats an epic WWIII with my cat.

Oh, man.  Both of our cats go into their crates like a dream.  Heck, I can’t even bring the crates out of the closet to put them together without the cats getting in the way trying to re-acquaint themselves.  

Getting them in the bathtub, on the other hand, is an entirely different story (boy-cat doesn’t clean himself properly so he turns yellow after a while, and girl-cat has a frustrating habitat of NAPPING IN THE LITTERBOX).

@StL.Ashley:  If you leave the carrier out someplace all the time, maybe in a quiet spot and leave a blanket in there, he will think its ‘his’ spot. No more issues with ever taking him to the vet 🙂 He will williningly go in there every time. Thats what we do with our felines.

One of my cats hates the carrier as well.  I have to fight with her tooth and nail to get her in, and she poops as soon as I shut her in it.  So after the last road trip, I decided two things – 1, I’m not traveling with her again unless the vet will give her medication to knock her out and 2, no more carrier.  Wherever she needs to go, we’ll do with the harness and leash.

One of my cats not only hates carriers, but it terrified of being in the car in general (aka where he would be in the carrier.  Nice logical leap there kitty).  Before he became ours, when my future in-laws took him to the vet he would foam at the mouth having a cat version of a panic attack.  So we use a harness and one of use holds him in the passenger seat.  That way we can pet him and comfort him until he falls asleep but don’t have to worry about him taking off when we open the door.

Wow, and I thought my cat was bad.  I just pick him up and put him right in.  LOL!  So sorry to hear your kitty put up such a massive fight.

Living with cats is always an adventure… I have soft carriers, so the cats really can’t do the legs spread preventing them from getting in maneuver.  I can just shove them right on in.  Before road trips I have left the carriers in the middle of the apartment and they would go in and sleep, but close that door and they thrash around and scream bloody murder!

There are also carriers that have a larger door on the top so you can plunk the cat in instead of shoving them through the front door that have worked well for me.

Rico is adorable! My cats all pee and poop immediately upon being locked in the carrier so I just harness and leash them now.

@StL.Ashley:  LOL! They’re wily!

I just pull a pillowcase off of my bed, put it on my arms so that my hands are inside the end, grab the cat, and flip the pillowcase inside out.  Then he’s inside the pillowcase, and I put the whole shebang in the carrier 🙂
