I have never had a pet on a truck, but next week I will have my cat. He is 2. How do you keep a cat away from the petals at your feet? I don't have a clue except to keep them in the bunk area. But that feels like it would put them in confinement all day. That isn't fair to them.

Has your feline ridden in any vehicle prior to hitting the road with you next week?

Patrick, from my experience (I've served two cats in my lifetime), in the car they may very well get down under your feet as they think this may be a safe place. If your Kitty starts doing that, simply stamp your foot and make some "HEY HEY!" noises until they move. Kitty will learn that they get kicked around if they go to that place.

Cats are their own owner, you know (I've seen Facebook photos of you and I think you had a black cat a few years ago). Even though they may do as they please, you have to make them understand that the place under the brake pedal is your resting spot. Maybe make a cat-bed up on the "desk" in the sleeper area. Cats also like to be up "in the tree" watching their surroundings.
