Well "halfway" is overstating it a bit. More like 60%. We stopped at LQ Jacksonville. And yes, we had to sneak cat #3 in. Shhhhh...

I'm driving from MN to FL at the end of the month. My 3 cats will be in carriers in our car. I would not even consider having them shipped. No way.

What if you rent an SUV one way, and have one of your cars shipped? I bought large carriers for my cats (2 will travel together - they like each other) and we will drive long days and stay in pet friendly hotels. The cats will only be allowed loose in the bathrooms. I'm sure they won't be happy, but they will be safe and alive.

I missed this, but for future reference, when I moved from FL to ME, I looked up a pet transport. The guy was a little older, (middle aged), lived in RI, and drove from RI to Miami all the time, doing nothing but pet transport.

He took my cats except one, and I took my dogs. He kept the cats at his house for a couple of days while I got up there, as I had to start a couple days after due to waiting on companies. I gave him the food for the cats, he gave me his cell #, and off the cats went.

Got to my house, let him know, he came by at 2am (which was fine with me, I accepted that meeting time) to my new house in ME, dropped off my pets, with the exception of one being a little thin because she wouldn't eat (not his fault), all were just fine.

I would absolutely trust the guy to do it again. Pet transport is a very good idea if you don't have room. Take the time to check them out, talk to them, read the reviews, etc.
