Cats: Dealing With Them While Moving

Like dogs, a lot of people take care of cats and consider them as pets. However it must be noted that most if not a lot of these feline fellow experience stress when moving from one place to another. In some cases, a perfectly healthy and outdoorsy cat would turn into a home-buddy cat, there are also those who become very territorial as they are too scared to leave a particular room in the new house.

This is the very reason why as a responsible pet owner, you need to be very particular of the things that you need to do in order to make your cat feel comfortable prior, on and after the move. The best way of dealing with territory problems of your cat would be to set up a room that is easy to tear down and put up. While the movers are going to and fro, put your cat n that room. Instruct the people that you are working with to leave that room unopened while the carrying, fixing and such is still taking place.

After that, put your cat in a bag or a cage and take him with you in your own car as you drive to the other place that you are moving into. Set up the very room first where the cat stayed last in your old house that way you can open the cage and let the cat loose in that area. This is a good way of tricking your cat into thinking that no switch of place happened thus no territorial issues will arise.
