Soft fabric carriers also do not ventilate well, which could cause your cat to become overheated. Plastic carriers not only have doors that let plenty of air in, they also have side vents, and they are not insulated by foam which traps your cat's body heat. The more ventilation and visibility a soft carrier has, the less rigid it is so that it is more like you are carrying your cat in a semi-rigid bag. Since a road-trip is already a stressful time, adding improper ventilation into the mix may not be a good idea.

In approximately 10% of infections, a cat mounts an immune response that is sufficient to eliminate the virus from the bloodstream, but not robust enough to completely eliminate FeLV DNA from the body. Cats with these regressive infections carry FeLV DNA in their bone marrow, and although they are not infective for other cats during this stage of infection, the virus may be reactivated at some time in the future, at which point they may begin to show clinical signs and become a source of infection for other cats.
