There kittens about 5 weeks old and meow a lot when I walk…

Customer Question
There kittens about 5...

There kittens about 5 weeks old and meow a lot when I walk away or put them in their carrier. I'm training them to be service cats and be a lot calmer. How do I reduce their separation anxiety? How do I reduce their travel fears? They were rescued out 20 degree weather in a box which has something to do with their anxiety. I also wanna keep em quiet cuz I live in dorms and don't want people spasming out on me.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the kitten?

Nothing they are healthy, rambunctious kitties. But me

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the kitten seem to hurt?

Work n how do I calm them when we travel or I put them in a carrier

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

There is nothing wrong physically with either kitten.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is the kitten eating normally?

Yes

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No appetite problems. Is the kitten having trouble peeing or pooing?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious problems there. How is the kitten behaving differently?

They were rescue kittens that have separation anxiety and anxiety when traveling how do I calm them?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the kitten's name?

Spock Zelda and Kirk Pippen. They were both rescued together and I won't keep them separate they share everything with each other nicely.
