Yesterday was Furry Friends day at my office. Of course I took my darling little girls. Unfortunately though, we were rear-ended on the way to the office. The accident was minor, but I can say that those are much worse when you have your kittons in the car with you. Everyone was ok and they were asleep during the impact, woke up and then returned to their nap once mama calmed down.
The entire incident made me very happy that we had bought a pet booster seat not long ago for them. It is actually a pretty spectacular little thing. The one we purchased hooks around the head rest and then straps to the seat, but can be suspended above the actual car seat (making it so that if they are in the front seat the airbag will not deploy and squash them). There are hooks in the seat that clasp to the harnesses to keep them secure. I personally was fine with the idea of them running around the car while we go places, but never again after this.
I actually think the play pen will be very useful going forward as well. We can allow the girls to sit outside with us while we are cooking out or camping, we can use it to help with introduction time for new pets (which will be happening soon enough), and for quarantine time when someone is recovering from surgery.
