This is what they looked like when we unfolded them.
A water or food bowl for pets. Great for long walks, camping or hiking.
Llitter needs of your cat. (Jan likes it as a water bowl for us dogs, so if she wanted to try it as an emergency or travel litter box she'd not want to use it again for water.)
A portable sink for backpacking or camping.
Storage or organization. (We should get Jan a kaboodle dozen of these!)
Buddy and Sam couldn't wait to try one. After Jan washed it, she filled the gallon box with water and Buddy took a drink. Sam paced while waiting his turn.
Buddy continued drinking. Sam stopped pacing and lay down. "What's with Buddy's imitation of a camel? Isn't it my turn yet?
Pay no attention to Sam. He did get a drink.Eventually.
When the weather got hot, Cotton moved into the bathroom and only comes out to eat and use the litter box. She wouldn't leave the room to get a drink of water, so Jan filled the smallest Sturdi Box with water and placed it in the bathroom. This worked really well for Cotton. For Jan, it was a disaster. It wasn't that the box didn't hold the water. It did. As long as Jan stayed out of the room. She kept backing up, kicking it and flooding the bathroom floor. (It's a small room. And as we've mentioned a time or two, Jan's a klutz.)
Jan has a fear of creepy crawlies and snakes, so she's not planning to take us camping. But one of these portable boxes is pretty handy for when we walk Jan twice a day. It's so hot and humid that water sure does taste good..
And we want to include some Sturdi pet travel tips for humans who hit the road with their furry friends,
Safety First! Here are Top 5 Car Travel Trip Tips for Small Dogs and Cats:
Safe car containment. Sturdi Cargo Pop Ups work well in providing a zone of safety and shelter for your pet in the car.
Fluids. Ensure that your pet is well hydrated during these hot summer months by bringing a clean source of drinking water in the car.
Beat the heat. Never leave your pet unattended in the car. The heat for even for ten minutes can be very dangerous.
Plan for breaks. Treat your pet like any traveling partner, whenever you take a break let your pet take a break as well.
Control nausea. If your pet is prone to car sickness there are several natural remedies you can try, including Rescue Remedy to help prevent nausea. Always check with your vet first and practice driving short distances with your pet before jumping on the open road for an extended road trip.
