|Well, the first thing to know is that a kitty new to cars should NEVER be allowed to roam around the car! It's dangerous for several reasons. First, a kitty stomping on the gas pedal is baaaaad...and second, if there's a wreck, loose cat = out the window! Always stay on your leash. Make sure the collar is too tight to squeeze out of, though not so tight as to be choking.
Make sure there's newspaper on all the seats and floor space to minimize accident-clean-up. If you have a favorite snuggly toy, blanket or pillow, make sure your mommy or daddy takes it with you. It's nice to have familiar things around.
When Mommy or Daddy are first training you, they should take you for short drives to safe places, like a friend's house, a local pet-friendly park, or just an empty parking lot. Let your mommy or daddy show you around wherever they take you on your leash, to get you used to it. As you get used to short car trips, make them longer and longer.
