Message:Jen, not sure if it is the smartest way, but when I brought Jack home 2 months ago I couldn't handle him so I put the whole cage in the car, half covered it, belted it in and talked and sang to him for the 2 hour drive. We both made it and I think he got used to my voice during the trip. Good luck--and you are right, the people on this board are very knowledgeable and helpful! Lisa M.
