Companies that allow cats?

Yes I read the list but it needs to be updated. It says Swift allows pets but under a certain weight. But when I call they say only dogs are allowed, no cats. Can anyone from experience tell me of which companies allow cats or if they know anyone from another company that allows them?

Might be attending Swift school next week, first time ever

Hello all,

This is my first time posting but been a lurker for a good while now. I got in contact with a Swift recruiter and they want to reserve a spot for me over here in Cali. They went over the program with me and said that as of right now they only have regional openings (I wanted something strictly California or "dedicated" but they said no openings were available). I've always been interested in trucking, always had respect for truckers and always wanted to get into it and now it seems I might actually have the chance. But I'm just worried about the long time away (for every 6 days of driving I get 1 day off optional). And they don't allow cats.. dogs yes but cats no so I have to ask a my gf to take care of my cat for me and I might look into getting a dog. I've been driving (class C) regular motor vehicle since I was 18 (I'm 28 now) so I'm not sure if understanding a new driving method will be any easier.

I'm both nervous and excited and I just wanted to thank everyone who posted that helped me with getting my confidence up and helping me gain more knowledge of the industry. If there are any tips (that I haven't already read through the many useful links) about getting started or what to expect or what not to do please let me know. This is a new chapter in my life and I want it to be a good one worth reading. :)
