Moving Your Pet
The response is different from different species of pets in case of a move. Depending on the kind of species you need to have different precautionary measure to move your pet from one place to another. You need to ensure the comfort level at different levels in case of dog, cat or bird.
For instance, cats are prone to stress if proper arrangements are not made to move them. Cats are very much bound to their routine hence they do not like it to be broken. And moving is something that disturbs all their routines.
Cats also like to control. For instance, if you remove her litter box from its original place, she will react hard to this action of yours. If anything in her surrounding changes the cat reacts firmly by displaying uncharacteristic personality changes or they become sick. In some cases, your cat's health may be seriously affected by such withdrawals of her surrounding as her immune system might go weak and weaker.
Now think of moving entirely from one place to another and if you are having a pet as cat. But there are solutions also. You must maintain your cat's routine as much as possible in case of a move. During the preparation for moving you are suggested to have your cat in one room with all her favorite toys, litter box, food and water. Let no one disturb that room at all. Make arrangements for this.
When you are moving on the road you must place your cat in a spacious carrier that enables her to stretch her body and have her food. Place a water and a small litter pan in the carrier. Once arriving at your destination you must arrange for the same environment that your cat had before. Give her a room and don't disturb her by forcing her to come out. Let her come out when she likes.
The same technique should be used to make her acclimatized to the new surroundings. Gently open the door and let her come out to explore her readiness for the new surroundings. If she does not seem willing to move out, it conveys her not being acclimatised yet. Shut the door and try again tomorrow.
Eventually, when she comes out at the door, it indicates her acceptance of the new surroundings.
