Moving with Cats Tips and Guide
Moving with cats can be especially difficult. Cats tend to
become more attached to their environment rather than to people.
When relocating with a cat, it is necessary to prepare in
advance. Show your cat plenty of attention and constantly
reassure it with familiar items and scents so the move does
not come as a shock.
Cats may not be as familiar traveling in cars as dogs are.
Several weeks prior to the move, it is recommended that you
take your cat on short trips in the car around the neighborhood
and then slowly increase the distance.
On moving day, confine your cat in its favorite room along
with its favorite bed and toys. This is to make sure that
it won't run away. Seeing everything packed and empty may
make the cat feel unstable. Pack a travel case for your cat
and count on numerous rest stops.
As you settle into your new home, spend some more time with
your cat. Sit down with it and provide your cat with a comfortable
living space. Keep it in and around the house for as long
as it takes them to become acclimated. Limit the cats' explorations
to just the new house and then gradually accompany it on tours
Confining the cat may seem a bit cruel, but cats are more
likely to run back to the old house, no matter the distance.
This process could last up to a month before the cat becomes
completely familiar with the new house, the scents, and noises
it makes on the new carpet and floors.
If you are moving to an area with a different climate, for
example, from Florida to Minnesota, it is advisable for you
to consult with your veterinarian on your cats move.
