“This is the joy and chaos of van life with cats, where the rhythms of the road meet the insistent demands of the domesticated,” Howard declares. Peppered with small nuggets of information, this brief guide delivers user-friendly information on creating a cat-friendly environment with litter box, proper food storage, and stimulating toys—he emphasizes the need for order and cleanliness when making a van a home, plus a harness and leash, first for the “delicate dance” of training, explained in six steps that encourage “paws-itive vibes,” and then for outdoor adventures.
This is a compassionate, frank, and direct resource to give prospective adventurers, especially those with cats, a jumping off point to think about and plan for nomadic van life, with clear advice about what it takes to keep cats safe, comfortable, and healthy, from items like emergency kits with frequently used medications, microchips, and trackers to that most pressing need every cat feels, whether on wheels or not: emotional support. Anecdotes about specific feline travelers, such as Howard’s Nicki and Nora Charles, named for Dashiell Hammett’s Thin Man sleuths, are especially charming.
Takeaway: Brief, informative guide for making a safe van-life environment for cats.
