Another trip right around the corner

Tuesday morning it's off to https://maricopacountyparks.org/lake-pleasant a short trip but a nice visit to our favorite campsite=24!

Our Norwegian Forest Cat Spooky will be traveling with us for her first multi-day trip and first campout. She hates traveling, so far, but loves our company so hopefully it will go well.
She is an in/out cat and she must be harnessed when outside in a campground. So far she's ok with her "Kitty Holster".




I'm going to rig a zip line for more mobility when leashed and of course lots of her things. I also have a folding cage that hangs on a window to allow her to be outside while inside and safe.

Any suggestions for other cat folks is welcome.

Spooky is an example of cats having 9 lives. She was locked in a shed for 17 days w/o food or water.
As she exited the shed, I ran to get water and some food for her but she was more interested in cuddling with us at the moment.
My eyes leaked.....

Thanks! I'm really not a cat person but she adopted us on Oct 23 '16 and she's very special.

I know what you mean. We had a cat once that stayed up in the rafters of our garage for the better part of a month... She didn't even look very skinny when she finally decided to come out...

Our kitty, Puerco (a little fatty) , is slowly getting used to bus life. She's always really bad on the first day of travel, but then it doesn't seem to bother her. She's normally very skittish around loud noises/people/other cats. However, when we're in a quiet spot she will tolerate the harness and leash and explore outside. However, at the first sign of "danger" she can squeeze right out of the harness and haul ass in the bus...

Here she is enjoying the driver's seat!

I have a couple of questions:
1. where did you get the cat harness? My cat (who looks a lot like Spooky!) hates the "dog" harness I got him
and
2. How does that folding cage attach to the window/side of bus? My boy so wants to be outside, I think this might make him very happy!
