Your cat is probably not a big fan of change. When your kitty sees the cat carrier, he knows something is about to change. Here are some tips to help your cat become comfortable with his carrier, if not the change it represents!
Leave the carrier out in the open. Add some bedding and treats, and, over time, your cat just might consider it a place of refuge!
Place food in the back of the carrier. This will help your cat willingly enter.
Reward good behavior. When your cat behaves calmly around the carrier, reward him!
Up the ante for the reward. Place the treats further inside the carrier each time and after your kitty willingly enters, shut the door behind him.
If the carrier has positive associations for your cat, it can make all the difference!
