    I've read about this stuff, and actually bought some. It's supposed to help with marking behavior. I wasn't sure if that's what my cat was doing, but I was desperate. I bought the kind that is in a little globe, and you plug it into a socket, and the fumes last for a month. It wasn't anything that we could smell. Anyway, it's really supposed to chill cats out.

    Yip, yip, yip in your tiny indignation. Bark furiously on, lady dog.

    I swear to you that my cat is quiet and calm and she has to go to the vets once a week to get fluids. It's been a lifesaver for both of us.

    I don't know if this helps but a vet told someone I know that you never turn the carrier sideways in a car because that will make the cat sick. The carrier should always face the front of the car. I have also heard many good things about Feliway spray to calm animals.

    My uncle is a vet, and we moved 4 hours away, so I asked him about this. He told me to give the cats dramamine. I have HUGE cats (one is about 30lbs..don't make fun he has a gland problem AND is big-boned). Anyhoo, he said to buy regular dramamine, and give the fat cat 1/2 a pill, the medium cat (about 15lbs) a 1/4 pill, and the runt cat (about 10lbs) 1/8 of a pill, about 30-45 minutes before the start of the trip. The suffered no ill effects, and slept the entire 4 hours..lol.

    You might want to call you vet to see if Dramamine (or another OTC human motion-sickness pill), is an acceptable alternative than actually getting them traquilized. HTH.
