Default 45 Minute Drive?

Hello All!

I am taking my hedgie, Quillow, to my parents house this weekend and it is about a 45 minute to an hour drive. I am planning on taking my cage with me. Should I keep her in the cage during transport or should I put her in a carrier?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

A hard sided cat carrier strapped into the middle rear seat is the most ideal option. Being in a cage gives too much room for her to fly around in the event of an accident or sudden stop.

Quillow is a cute name.

Also if there is an accident, first-aid attendants are trained to look for pet carriers, so some things like a box or covered cage might be overlooked
