Well it sounds like the consensus is mixed, I expected that. Some cats take to travel and leashes well and others don't. Nala does fine on car rides, I'll just have to give her a trial period once I get the bus. Sounds like I've got a general A OK give it a try on the pet flap in the stairwell! *Nothin new under the sun, eh folks?*
2kool4skool, LOVE the kitty window cage! I'd considered one of those too, again, something to try out for Nala's consideration.
o1marc, I have a reflective breakaway collar for Nala, if she gets caught on something she can pull away. She's come back from home a few times without hers and I got replacements.
I did some checking on those gps pet trackers, reviews were mixed depending on brand. Honestly a cat cam would probably work better lol
Jdawgsfanasty, putting one in the door isn't a bad idea, I plan on having a new door though, don't trust the bus doors. Still, the entry remains in the stairwell and I don't see how the leak issue would be any better in the door vs the stairwell, since I wouldn't put the pet flap on the tire side in the well to begin with.
peterbylt, I think Nala could be trained to harness and leash. She REALLY will not like it at first though. But once she understands that that's her ticket to outside chill time, she might come around. I think she might like to hike with me...
Carytowncat, that's awesome! I guess the idea works for someone, good to know it!
01ThomasMVP, I HAD thought of having the roof emergency exits cat accessible. I plan on a roof deck, thought about having a cage up there for her instead of a window cage so she'd have more room, because she's a climber, a tree cat.
JDOnTheGo, thanks for the pro-vote! Sounds like you and your cats have an understanding!
Tango, Roger that, Nala's a good hunter and decent sized cat, but I don't want to see her tangle with an eagle. I'll take local predators in mind.
Thanks everyone for chiming in! Of course that doesn't mean yall gotta stop but I just wanted to say thank you anyway!
