Post We are moving! How do we prepare the stinks?

For weeks now Ray has been asking if I started a thread about how to move the cats asking advice. I thought we'd start them in the bathroom with the bathroom litter for like a half hour and then let them loose in the house, because there aren't anydoors all downstairs to seclude them slower. Anybody have any advice or want to tell ray to simmer down?

LOL @ telling Ray to simmer down... Cats are very easily freaked to change, more so than Dogs, but any cat I have ever had adjusted just fine, once their litter box, food dish, and especially the furniture got moved into the new place.... Your idea sounds just fine, but I've never had to do that..... Wishing you the best of luck on your move

I think maybe move the cats middle to last...after the furniture so they have something familar. And of course, you can tell Ray to simmer down too

I agree with Becki get some furniture in the house and move the cats in the middle of the move or twards the end.

Hey, good question! Alec and I are moving into our new house next month, and I was wondering how the cats would take it. Good idea to get some familiar furniture in there first. That way, they won't be underfoot when you're moving the big stuff around and will be able to explore without feeling locked up....

When we moved we moved everything else and the animals were last.


Tell Ray to Simmer down!

Ray said he'd simmer but he is not the insane one...

Cool

Both of you simmer down.

We did it backwards when we moved to FL - we left the cats all alone in the house without a stick of furniture in it the night before our furniture got here! Part of that was because we had a company moving us and they couldn't be here; the other part was because Bub had been living in a one-bedroom apartment and we didn't want to risk the cats spraying it by being there one night!

I've moved a couple of times with cats. Twice in KY - once was easy 'cause I was working at a vet clinic and I took them in to board and when I took them home it was to a new house.

I never confined mine, although just about everything you read suggests that you do that.

Good luck!

I agree with Sassy, they should be moved last. Not only will all of your furniture be in place in the new house, you also won't have to worry about them escaping from the new house when trying to move in more stuff.
