Cats illustrated rupp rafters

I was trying to find some pictures of cats illustrated rupp rafters. I have read most of the threads and seen most of the pictures and have come across the following question I wanted to know.

If you put a cat in the back of a pickup truck what does he do when you start the truck, and you are driving, what will he do. Will he jump off the tailgate, or will he try to sit up in a normal cat position, and if he sits up where is he? Will he jump back down and sit, or will he sit on the tailgate, etc..

The same question goes for dogs. What if you have a dog in the back of a pickup truck, and you start the pickup truck.

If you are driving and your dog jumps off the tailgate, will he try to get back in.

Thanks in advance for the help.

The same thing happens with our cats when my husband starts the car or truck. They will jump out, but my son always tells them that it is bad to jump out. So, for the most part, they just sit in the back. I don't think they like it when they jump in, but, for the most part, they just do.

My cat likes to jump on the tailgate when I leave the house. He likes to watch the scenery.

A cat would probably stay in the tailgate if he was comfortable.

I would say a cat will jump out if he thinks the ride is going to be fun. He will most likely sit next to the passenger window to look out. Dogs will most likely stay in the cargo area because there is not a lot of room for them to move around in.

My cat likes to stay in the tailgate. I can't understand how anyone would leave their cat in the back of a truck when driving...

I don't think a cat will jump out if he thinks it's fun. My cat likes to sit in the back seat of our SUV, when we're driving. I have to put her in the cargo area to keep her out of my way when I'm driving.

A cat that gets his front paws on the tailgate will not usually jump off.

I would imagine the dog will stay in the truck with his head between the seats, or in the cargo area.

It all depends on what kind of dog it is, and how old he is. A young dog who is used to traveling in a vehicle, can usually handle it better than a more timid dog.

If your cat is an old cat and/or if your dog is a young dog, you may have to train them. I have a dog who gets freaked out when I leave the house. If I take him to the vet in the car (I do not drive while holding him) he's pretty good. He just looks out the window and sits on the seat. He also seems to enjoy the experience. He's not too fond of being in the back cargo area of the truck, and the cat on the tailgate.

The only dog I know that can drive in the truck is a Belgian Malinois. I have a big old truck that has a bench seat, and the dog can sit on the bench with his head between the seats. This may be the only option if you need to drive with a dog.

My last comment, I have a small dachshund, and he absolutely hates it when I take him on a trip. If I go to the grocery store with him he will run up and down the aisles. If I go to the vet he will bark and try to get in the door. When we go to the store, he likes to ride on the top of the shopping cart. He likes the trip better when I let him run free. He will not get in the back of the truck if I'm driving. I'll put him in the front passenger seat, and let him sit on the dash. He likes it when I stop and let him walk around.

I have been driving all my dogs (with their head in between the front seats) for as long as they have been alive, it has worked well for us. However, we have a border collie that needs a little bit of training on getting into the cargo area if we do not have an automatic transmission, we have only the manual transmission. Also, if your dog is young, I think that they will grow into it over time, if not, you might need to have to spend some time at a doggie daycare when you take the pup to get used to the idea of being in the car.

Dogs get in trouble a lot more than cats.

I would think a cat wouldn't jump in.

If you are driving a minivan or other small vehicle, and it has a sliding passenger seat, and there's room for the cat to sit there, then there's no problem. Otherwise, if you are driving a small car (say, a Jeep Wrangler), a minivan or other large vehicle with a cargo area, and your cat wants to go on a ride, you might not want him to go.
