I just learned that cats are allowed on Amtrak for an additional $25. They must be in a carrier, but the carrier can be soft or hard. The trip cannot be over 7 hours. Your cat is not allowed out of the carrier during the trip. The carrier counts as a carry-on. Only one cat per passenger.
Only 5 pets are allowed per train so you need to call and make reservations.
The cats are not allowed in the Cafe Car.
We have started using Gabapentin to help with anxiety. You should discuss this with your veterinarian.
