Question QUESTION- Cat in a cupboard

Well we have just moved house and one of my cats are freaking out a lot. He has been sleeping in the cupboard everyday all day, and can't get him out unless it is for food.We have been living there now for 2 months and it is still going on. Recently another cat has been around the house, he might be scareing him. My other cat was scared at the start but now he is okay. WHAT CAN I DO FOR OCCY TO HELP HIM TO BE LESS SCARED.

Bean stayed in a plastic toy box for the longest time after we moved into our house. It took some time for her to get comfortable.h

He is probably stressed from the move.He will eventually get used to everything in his new enviroment.

Cats are curious creatures and eventually he'll come around and look around the house and get back into the groove of things

Do you have anything from your old place that you could put in the cupboard with your kitty to make it smell like "home"? Like, does your kitty have a kitty bed, or blanket, or anything like that? That may make him feel more secure. You could also place some of YOUR worn clothing in there with him.

Most articles I've read suggest setting up a "safe" room; a quiet, small, out-of-the way room to keep kitty secure after moving. It sounds like kitty has made the cupboard his safe room. Adding some articles with familiar smells might help him relax a bit.
