Many people have trouble getting their cats into their carrier, which is understandable if any time your cat goes into a carrier, it’s to go to the vet. Try to break this association by leaving your carrier open in the house for a week or two. Your cat will sniff it, lie inside it, and all around get used to it and not immediately associate it with a long car ride or going to get a shot.
