Moving with cats

Cats can have a very difficult time with the process of moving, both in terms of the traveling and getting used to a new home. When their daily schedule is disrupted, cats can become nervous and may behave strangely. A new environment can also be a major source of anxiety for a cat, and it may take some time before your cat gets readjusted.

Make a trip to the veterinarian to have your cat checked prior to the move. Additionally, request health records to take with you to your new destination, and have immunizations updated where necessary. The vet can also prescribe anti-nausea and other medications to make your cat’s trip more comfortable.

Try to make everything as normal as possible in the days leading to your move, feeding and playing with your cat as usual. Try to keep the schedule uninterrupted despite all of the arrangements you’re making for the move itself.

If your cat is known to be especially prone to nervousness and anxiety, you may want to ask a friend to care for your cat during the time surrounding your move. This could help cut down on the stress for your cat.

If you are traveling by air with your cat, ensure that your carrier is approved for airline transport. Contact your airline to determine the necessary requirements for traveling with a cat.

If you are traveling by car with your cat, purchase a proper carrier that is large enough for your cat’s comfort. Your cat will be less nervous if you place it in a carrier, and it is unsafe to allow the animal to freely roam throughout the car when you are driving.

When you arrive at the new home, be prepared to give special attention to your cat. Examine the house and its outdoor areas to ensure that nothing presents a potential hazard for your cat. Close doors and windows so that your cat can’t get out; nervous cats are especially prone to taking off out of fear.

Be present when the cat is released from its travel carrier for the first time, and speak to the cat in soothing, gentle tones. Encourage your cat to investigate its new home, but don’t allow it to go outside immediately. Once your cat is better familiarized with the inside of its home, you can begin taking it outside on a few supervised excursions. Eventually, your cat will be comfortable enough with its surroundings that it will be able to come and go on its own again.
