Top Tips For Moving Home With Your Cat In Worthing, Sussex
People experience stress when they move. There are several ways that it could be distressing for your cat. Your kitty friend won't have to deal with solicitors or pack boxes, they will have to deal with the shock of leaving their familiar environment.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to ease your cat's anxiety during the move to help it be a little less stressful.
The Metro recently provided some guidance on how to approach transferring your pet into a new house. If your cat is very anxious, you might want to think about checking it into a Worthing cattery in Sussex.
This can help keep them out of the way on the moving day and give you time to unpack and decorate your new place before introducing your cat to their new environment in Worthing.
One of the most crucial steps if you want to make the transition as stress-free as possible for your kitty friend is getting them comfortable. The newspaper suggests setting up a place where your cat may begin to get acquainted to their new home and unpacking their basics first.
One of the best methods to assist your cat in settling in is to maintain a consistent feeding schedule. If you decide to use a Worthing Cattery you can ask the owner to keep to your own feeding schedule.
It's also a good idea to initially keep your cat from going outside. According to the newspaper, it may be wise to let them adjust to your new home for the first two weeks to reduce the likelihood that they'll try to move back to their old home.
Make sure your cat is microchipped and that you have updated its information with your new Worthing address before letting it out.
The Express published an appeal from the animal protection organisation Blue Cross earlier this year asking for all cats to be microchipped. According to the charity, 80% of the cats that came through its adoption centres were not microchipped, making it difficult to readily reunite them with their owners if they were lost rather than stray cats.
