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?

Prime does. Rainy has her cat, Goofball, as her co-pilot for several years.

OK, cats should be more suitable to truck life than dogs, due to their smaller size, inability to bark, and being able to poop and pee in a litter box. (If you like that by-product in your confined space.) So, if companies allow pets, I can't understand why they wouldn't allow cats. Maybe cats cause some sort of problem at CAT scales.

Just a little history about cats. The first tennis racquets were woven with cat gut. Look it up, it's true. They were called 'racquets' because it makes a lot of racket when you try to take the guts out of a cat.

CAT Scale:

A network of over 1,500 certified truck scales across the U.S. and Canada found primarily at truck stops. CAT scales are by far the most trustworthy scales out there.

In fact, CAT Scale offers an unconditional Guarantee:

“If you get an overweight fine from the state after our scale showed your legal, we will immediately check our scale. If our scale is wrong, we will reimburse you for the fine. If our scale is correct, a representative of CAT Scale Company will appear in court with the driver as a witness”

I've had drivers say when they got their truck one of the cabinets reeked of cat ****. I'd imagine this is a decent reason to consider not allowing them on trucks, although really it's the owner not the cats fault. It is up to the owner to take care of their pets properly.

We dont allow "i heard stories" here... but I am sure this one is true.

Supposedly a lease op had 7 cats on the truck. She used the entire top bunk as a litter box. i cant even imagine that cleaning bill.

That litter i posted is real pine chips like broken chopsticks. It becomes sawdust when wet and when they kick in it, pine scent fills the truck. no cat smell.

But yes, cat urine is hard to rid of and many "pet friendly" hotels do not allow cats for this reason. Also, they claw everything in site if not provided scratching posts. Another owner issue.

I’ve seen four small dogs, and two people, get out of a truck once, but seven cats?!?! Oh my!

There is a clever remark to be made here about CAT scans, but I'm going to refrain from posting it.

I think I'll leave that to PackRat or Tractor Man.
