This will just make them more anxious and stressed out throughout the journey. Don’t worry too much about the comfort factor too much at this stage. You can always add blankets and toys that you already own into the carrier or basket later one. For pets who don’t like going into a carrier, consider one that has a top which opens. This will make it far easier to get them in quickly without much fuss. If you’re still unsure visit a local pet store or talk to your vet about possible options.
