The next step was for me to learn how to safely and calmly put him into the cat carrier. My wonderful vet demonstrated a scruffing technique which worked well, but now we have a routine that we are both comfortable with, I can pick MellyBoy up and pop him in his carrier fairly easily. Having a box with a top opening makes the whole thing a lot easier. I always pop an old towel in the bottom of the carrier as MellyBoy will always pee as soon as he goes in the box…. I assume this is fear bless him.
