The Complete Cat Owner Package to a Vacation

Isn't it strange how stressful planning a vacation can be? By the end of it, most of us feel we need more time off to recuperate. Taking your pet or ensuring his or her well being while you're away is another source for stress. To help reduce your tension level, we've assembled a series of stories to act as guideposts on your journey. If you are unsure whether to take your pet, see the story Traveling with Your Cat.

When you're on the road with your pet, you should already have a list of pet-friendly hotels. Be sure to learn what "hotel etiquette" means by seeing the story Hotel Etiquette – Being Invited Back!
