Pets Guide: Small Creatures

Most small animals and mammals can be moved in their cages. These include guinea pigs, gerbils and mice. Do not place in a drafty location in the car however as adequate ventilation is necessary. Remove any water bottles so they do not spill and line the bottom of the cage with newspapers.

At rest stops you may can feed and water your pet as usual. Do not park in direct sunlight and do not let the car become too hot or cold .Generally small critters like the same temperatures as humans so what is hot or cold for you is hot or cold for your pet.
