  •  We Moved From Ohio to Seattle Once and Went (5+ / 0-)

    thru Billings, carting everything we owned in the back of a 26' Budget rental moving van with 2 Toto dogs in the cab with us.

    Maybe this can help a small amount with the "how:" of course we carried leashes and had them harnessed all day long as we drove. We took about 5-6 breaks a day for a few minutes, some including our own lunch or snacks and toilet breaks, and snatched the leashes on for a stroll around the grounds at every break to do their thing. We carried water bowls in the cab for the dogs which is probably less a factor for cats.

    We had one that was an unhappy camper in any vehicles so we got a small dog dose of calming med for him which really helped. About 90% of the time they both slept.

    Good luck with your move. We're about to move 3 miles so it's looking a lot easier on all of us than that 2,000 mile deal.
