Can I leave my cat in my car?

No - you should never leave pets inside a car alone. There is pretty much nothing you can do to make it safe unless you leave the car on with the air conditioning going, which would make it easy to steal. Cats can easily die of overheating if left alone in a vehicle. Leaving open the windows or parking in the shade will not stop this risk. Cars will trap heat inside them, and cats can dehydrate very easily in these conditions. You should plan any trips so that your cat will not have to be left alone while you run errands - do anything like that before you put your cat in the car or after you drop it off at its destination.
