    Hi just happened to have a stray kitten last Christmas and this year she is getting bigger and bigger.

    So the question is do you all let cats in your cars?

    My Cassina is her scratching post...

    merry Christmas

    Are you vaguely unbalanced?

    Cats have absolutely no place in Ferrari’s.

    They’re for dogs only, of course

    My dogs have their own car, they prefer it that way. In fact they will be going in it in about an hour, going to doggie day care.

    I have 4 English Mastiiffs-they all love going for drives but especially the oldest one. He is 210 pounds and a bit arthritic so getting him into the suv takes some effort but..
    My first day with my new 2018 488 spider- top down but doors closed and windows up-pull up to the garage and head inside. Little did I know the old guy was outside.
    I came back out to put the car into the garage only to find the guy sitting in the passenger seat.
    I freaked out but he refused to leave without a drive first. Can’t get a 210 pound mastiff to do anything he doesn’t want.
    The most amazing thing is he leaped into the car with out a scratch or dent.
    But the hair and drool took an hour to remove.

    Yep! She doesn't nag me about my speed, doesn't goof with the radio, and actually fits in the otherwise useless back seats of the Cali. She's the perfect co-pilot. Here she is on the way to the groomers.

    Zero chance that any animal will ever get into my car. Hell, I'm even reluctant to allow my wife in the car.

    I have a made for dogs carrier.
    Many choices on the 'net or in store Petco et al.

    Slots for seat belt install, felt to protect seats, multiple screens and zippers for dog access and comfort.
    But no drink holders LOL.
    The carrier even has a d-ring where one installs a small strap from box to collar to restrain the dog to the area of the carrier.
    Dog can pop his head out of the box, which is probably a thrill for the animal instead of just laying curled up.

    So yes, cats (and dogs) can travel safely in an F car.

    Great point. Need to keep the little fur children secured in the car. Don't want them flying around in a sudden stop or, God forbid, a crash.
    We use a padded harness for The Princess, and then secure that to a seat belt.
    See how happy she looks to be in the Ferrari! :)

    Mine is a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I had it lowered and back seats removed, then covered the area in plastic, then dog blankets and beds fill the rear. My Brittney Bree sits in the front and the rest of the girls go in the back area. We never have to go very far so their car only has about 4500 miles on it. I'm told not to discuss that I bought a brand new car for my dogs, since that is a bit strange. Seems perfectly normal to me though.

    He obviously jumped in. As for pictures...I was too busy being resuscitated by my wife. Here is a recent picture of him sans Ferrari Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I've taken my male Siamese cat with me up to my cabin a couple of times, 2 hours each way. He wanders around in my SUV, hollering at first, then sitting on my lap or taking a nap.
