Hi everyone, there are two former farm/barn cats living outside my summer residence. I was feeding them from May-August in the hopes of taming them enough to be captured. One is quite tame and allows me to pick her up. The other is still pretty jumpy, but has on a few occasions allowed me to pet her while feeding. The two main issues/questions that I have are:

(1) My permanent residence is almost 10 hours away from where they are - could this long-distance transportation be too stressful for them??

(2) I live in an apartment at the moment. Realistically, would they be able to adjust? Particularly the jumpy one?

One idea I came up with for the long drive was to break it up by taking them to a vet somewhere in between and perhaps sedate them? I really know nothing at the moment, but I will contact the Humane Society before proceeding.

Thanks in advance.
