How can you help your cat adjust to moving?
It’s time to take Mr.Whiskers to your new home. Take a deep breath. You can do this. All you need is a little time to consider how to make this move as easy as possible for your cat. Moving is a stressful time and we can’t forget about how that may affect our furry friends. Let’s take a look at how you can simplify your moving process for your cat.
Prepare your cat for the moving experience.
There is a lot of time that your cat is going to have to spend some time in their carrier during the moving process. For some cats, this can spell disaster. Try to spend some time getting your cat more comfortable with their carrier in the weeks leading up to the move. Let it be a safe place for your cat to rest and find some peace. If you’re open to it, clicker training is a nice way to help your cat get comfortable without overtreating them.
Find a way to make your new space comfortable for your cat.
Cats act out when they feel stressed. This can include scratching up furniture, biting, or even spraying if they’re male. You should be ready to give your cat some time to adjust to their new surroundings so that they don’t develop new ways of acting out in the new house. Make sure that they have access to stress-relieving things like scratching posts and toys when they get to the new space. Put out blankets that smell like you and try to make the new house as familiar as possible. Then, give your cat some time to explore safely. Soon, they’ll feel right at home again.
