Moving house with your cat

How to move house with your cat

Moving house is a stressful experience for everyone involved, but perhaps one family member that often gets overlooked in all of the moving house palaver is your cat.

Cats are creatures that like routine and control, two things which go out of the window during a house move. First of all you will be packing, then there is all of the hustle and bustle on the day of the move and finally you will have to get your cat settled in a new home.

All of this is as worrying for you as it is your cat. Here at FLEXiSPACE we deal with a lot of people moving house, so we thought we’d put together this guide to help make sure the experience is as painless and safe as possible for your cat.

We give you some ideas to help before, during and even after the move. This includes how best to travel with your pet if they are going long distances, how to make them feel comfortable in their new home, when to let them outside again and how to get your cats used to smaller homes.

We hope this piece makes your, and your cat’s move, as stress-free as possible.
