Lots of pet owners are looking ahead to travel for the three-day weekends and holidays coming up. Make sure everyone is ready, including your pet.

Check with your host first. Make sure they are comfortable with having your pet as a guest. If not, ask now for suggestions of pet-friendly facilities nearby. Hotels and inns that accept pets are popular during holidays and book early.

Bring along a good supply of your pet’s food and familiar water and food bowls. Bring a copy of your pet’s vaccination records from the vet.

If you plan to travel with your cat, take out your carrier a week in advance, line it with one of your cat’s favorite blankets and put in catnip toys so your cat will get used to spending time in it.
