Moving can be stressful because you’re leaving a familiar place and setting up your home in an unfamiliar area. To make matters more stressful, you may need to move a cat and get your cat accustomed to a new place as well.
First, moving a cat will likely involve putting the cat in a kennel of some type to hold it while you move it. Second, you’ll likely need to move the cat in a car, plane, or train. In other words, you will need to place your cat in an unfamiliar place with strange noises and people.
Since every move is different and every pet behaves in different ways, consider all possible options from driving, flying, taking a train, or even hiring a professional pet mover. You may only need to move once in your pet’s life, so do what you can to make the move as less stressful as possible.
