Are you a cat owner who will be moving home soon?

Cats may be just as attached to their home as you are, or sometimes even more. Moving homes can be unsettling for your cat, so here are some tips on how to make them feel secure, relaxed, and comfortable during the move.

1- Before moving

Take some time to think about your cat’s personality. How open are they to new experiences? Do they handle changes well? Are they easily affected by the presence of strangers? Has your cat been unsettled in previous house removals? All these questions are important before planning a move. But also learning how to label boxes like a pro. If packing is not your thing and you need further assistance with packing your items, don’t hesitate to request our packing services.

2- During the move

As much as possible, keep your cat away from the noise and non-stop activity that come with house removals. Find a room where they already feel comfortable, prepare a comfy bed, give them their favourite toys, arrange a litter box, and ensure they have all the treats, food and water they need. Let family members and your house removals company know about it and make sure the door stays closed during the move.

If your cat is not used to travelling, even going a short distance can make them feel dizzy, stressed, or disoriented. You may want to consider transporting them in a good quality cat carrier. To do this, you will need to train them in advance.

3- At your new home

Find a quiet room that will become your cat’s home for the first few days, just like you did during the move. Although cats love their independence and coming and going as they please, keeping them indoors for a short period will help them become familiar with their new surroundings at their own pace. Once they have settled, you can let them explore the rest of the house. And when they are familiar with the new house, let them go outdoors -but don’t rush the process to stop them from going missing.
