We've got the microchip but honestly if you cat runs away while you're boondocking the chances of getting them back is basically zero.

Chips are only good if an honest person finds the cat and thinks to take it to a vet for examination, or the thief takes it in for something and doesn't know it has a chip. GPS is the way to go now because you can actively track the pet in real time. They are considering putting GPS chips in children, but many balk about privacy rights.I say screw the privacy rights if I'm trying to locate my missing or kidnapped child.

Well maybe sometimes the cats just want to get off the bus when they're in a good place. Like, I'm leavng. These guys put a harness and a leash on me.

Not pet related ut a good friend of mine is a firefighter and advocate for Project Lifesaver. They make bracelets with radio beacons intended to be worn by people at risk of wandering (think alzheimers/dementia, autism/downs syndrome) and have the ability to be tracked by land vehicle, helicopter, and even from a drone.

I've read most of the suggestions...I think a hole in that area would be a leak issue...how about removing the bottom glass from the e-door and having a screened(1/2" hardware cloth) box the width of the bumper by 24"x 24"high? Use your pet door of course...

If we are gone for three nights or less we fill the feeder with dry and make sure there is plenty of water and Leave Murphy in charge of the house.

Four nights or more and he comes with us.

He is not happy for the first 5 miles or so, then chills out.

He is chipped.

When camping I take him out at least once a day with a harness and the retractable leash, he prefers to go out after dark.

The first couple of times he balked at the harness, now he comes running over when I take it out.



eventually I would like to build something like this to use on the bus to put the litter box in.
