My saga of traveling with my cats started and ended well. At the end of May, I traveled from California to Washington state with my two cats in hand, ready to introduce them to their new home. It would be a 2.5-hour flight from Los Angeles, CA to Portland, OR and thankfully it went better than I could have ever expected.
Animal enrichment is the practice of providing your dog or cat (or any captive animal) with appropriate stimuli and aspects to their environment that encourage them to perform their natural behaviors and to express positive emotions. Animal enrichment practices depend on the individual animal and the species of animal. Cats require different types of enrichment than do dogs, than do elephants in a zoo, for instance. Animal enrichment is required for all types of captive animals including laboratory and zoo animals as well as companion animals.
