I’ve had several people tell me they can’t keep my cat in their car because it can cause health issues.
But as a pet owner, I’ve seen enough dog owners and vets tell me that keeping a pet in the car is a bad idea, that keeping it inside a car is just fine, that it’s better to let your pet sleep outside.
So I’m trying to figure out how I can keep my pet in my home while still keeping it safe and healthy.
What I’m doing is setting up a pet crate on my balcony, where I have a small dog that’s comfortable and cozy, and then placing a dog carrier that I have lined up for the dog to lay on.
I have my two other dogs, a pit bull and a German shepherd, both of which have their own dog beds in the house, so they’re both comfortable and easy to access.
As long as I’m not walking in front of them, the only reason I can imagine for keeping them outside is to keep them out of my way.
If I do walk by, it’s not as big a deal, but I’ve already noticed that they’re a little anxious.
My cat, who has allergies, is allergic to cats.
The other dogs are also allergic to dogs, so I’ve gotten them vaccinated for rabies.
They’ve been tested and are fine.
We’ve been in contact with the vet to see if I can schedule an appointment for them to go into a lab for a biopsy.
Since I’ve kept my cat indoors, I can’t get them vaccinated because it’s the only way I can know if they’ve gotten the virus, but if I do schedule an in-person appointment, I’ll let them know.
At this point, my only real concern is that I might have to keep an additional dog in the same home because it may be a good idea to bring a dog crate to the house and make room for a larger dog, like a Labrador, or a bulldog.
If I can get my cat and dog in a crate together and make sure they’re all okay with the other dogs in the home, I think that I can have a good home-away-from-home experience with both of them.
Since I’m planning to keep the two dogs in my backyard, I’m also planning to set up a home-wide pet crate for them.
I’ve got two dogs and one cat that I’m comfortable with living in.
When I see people bringing their pets in for an in person pet visit, I always think, ‘Oh, it might not be possible to keep it in the room.
How can I make it comfortable and safe for my pets to be in the right environment?’
My goal is to have them be comfortable and secure in the crate and out of the house at all times.
If that means going to a hospital, that’s okay, but my goal is not to have my pets in a room together for an hour and a half.
At this point I’m thinking about moving them to a different room in the backyard, but in the meantime, I have them in a separate crate for the time being.
I’ve been having a lot of people ask if I’m keeping them in the living room, so let me know what you think!
