One option for protecting dogs in cars without the use of a seatbelt is to attach a pet carrier, such as an animal-sized luggage carrier or grocery sack, to the window ledge or rearview mirror. This way, your dog can remain close by while you travel and still be protected from wandering out of the car. If you have downloaded and installed the app Protect My Pet from SafeHouse SF (formerly DriveSafe), your smartphone can also be used to remotely monitor your dog’s location and activity when in transit.

There really is no definitive answer to this question. While it is frequently asserted that bobcats do not come out during the day, there are also reports of individuals seeing bobcats during daylight hours. This may be due to location (higher elevations tend to have more light at dawn and dusk), individual behavior, or both.

Regarding temperament, most experts agree that cats in the wild are shy by nature and will typically remain hidden when possible. In captivity however, some personalities can develop which makes them more tolerant of humans and may even approach humans for food or offers of affection. Regardless of their disposition outside of the home or zoo setting, it’s important to remember that wild animals are often much larger and stronger than domesticated cats so respect should always be shown when encountering one in close proximity (close enough for a good photo opportunity!).

Some important points to keep in mind when travelling with a cat include making sure the windows are closed tightly and the cat is kept inside a carrier or bag while in transit.

Cats and tulips may not be the best of friends, but in theory, they can live together in close proximity. However, tulips are known for releasing a gas that is toxic to cats, so it’s important to do your research before introducing them. If you’re brave enough to try this arrangement, keep these tips in mind:

– introduce your cats slowly; allow them time to get used to the new smell and person
– set up some boundaries; have one area of the room designated as “cat territory” and make sure they always have access to food and water dishes there
– monitor your cats regularly; if they exhibit any signs of distress (coughing, sneezing, acting lethargic), take them out of the room immediately
