What is vet visit and travel anxiety in cats?

Cats feel anxious when they think there is a possible threat to their safety and security. The feeling escalates to fear when they perceive the threat becoming real. Any situation can spark anxiety in your cat, but there’s one that will almost universally distress even the calmest of kitties: vet visits, and the ride to get there. Cats feel safe and in control on their own turf, with their own people. Nothing can be more upsetting than the unpredictability of travel and new places!
