Moving with cats can be challenging because these tiny hunters are ruled by their need to preserve their territory and resources. For your indoor cat, your house is the entirety of his world. So when you pack all your belongings and move to a place with new smells and resources, your cat’s entire world changes.
Taking the time to prepare your cat for the move ahead will reduce his overall stress (and the chance that he’ll reject using his litter box). Calmatives, pheromone collars, and preserving his cat tree and cat beds between moves will make the change easier.
But even if you follow all the tips on this infographic, be prepared for your cat to need an adjustment period before he’s secure in his new space.***
