We all know cats are easily stressed by changes in their environment, making moving an especially difficult time. Here are a few tips to help make moving less stressful for your cat.

#1 – Think about Boarding
If you are doing repairs before you move or have a large house to pack with many movers coming in and out, you may want to consider boarding your cat. If your cat has stayed somewhere before (a friend’s or a facility) your cat may be less stressed there. (This would not be a good time to try somewhere new!)
#2 – Streamline
The less fuss you can make while moving, the better. Organize the packing so it doesn’t stretch on for days and try to move in as short of a time span as possible.
#3 – Save Kitty Things for Last
Keep out a number of your cat’s items until the last possible moment, so your cat still feels at “home.” His cat tree is a great thing to keep around, so he can get up out of the way and “hide” if he feels like it.
