As exasperating as moving can be, no one in the household feels this more intensely than our feline friends. As creatures of habit, the noise of moving and adjusting to a new environment can make them anxious.
Here are a few tips to help reduce the stress your cat feels during a move.
Before the move:
Taking out their crate/carrier a few days prior helps them get used to it and be more comfortable with the idea of getting into it.
On the Day of:
Before you start loading up your truck clear out a room as far from the noise as possible and set up their things (litter, food, toys, etc.). If possible, its best to set them up in a room where one of these things is usually housed, the idea is to be surrounded by as many familiar things as possible.
Once you’ve got your stuff all loaded and its time to ready the cat, I find it best to get their stuff packed up (in an easily accessible box) and then get them into their crate.
During the drive to your new home leave them in their crate, this prevents them from dashing out of the car when you stop and keeps them in a familiar/safe space.
Once you have arrived at your new home, set your furry friend up in a room of their own with a door that closes, let them get used to their new surroundings slowly. Make sure to set up the litter, food and water, even put a few toys.
I hope this is helpful when you plan your next move!

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
