Cheap Removalists Melbourne Tips for moving with little ball of fur (Cat)
As a cat lover, I thought of writing an article about moving with cats. The cat is a special animal. It’s a wonder of nature. OK, you may hate cats, but it’s one of the most common pet in houses across the world. They are not like our best friend, the dog. The cat is a proud animal, and they get used to a daily routine quickly. So, if you forget to feed just once, it might upset your little ball of fur. Moving house with cats is another topic to discuss in details.
You hired Cheap Removalists Melbourne, so on the move day; your house is filled with strangers. Strange faces and loud noises would definitely make your cat get scary feelings. How can you make it feel safe? Just as for your kids, some actions are there to take for assuring the cat on the move day.
1) Getting your cat used to the new paradise:
Take this action a week before the Cheap Removalists Melbourne arrives. Choose a quiet place in your home (a bedroom or the bathroom) as the new paradise for your cat. Keep its food, water, bed, toys, and litter tray in that chosen place. You must feed your cat at usual times, but in the new paradise. Within a day or two, it will get used to the new environment. That room will be the safe spot of the cat When Cheap Removalists Melbourne load your other items in the trucks. You can keep that room locked or put a warning sign on the door, so the movers would not go in and disturb the cat. When the movers are done with packing/loading items in other areas of the house, now the time to go and gently put the cat in a safe carrier.
2) Calming your cat throughout the journey:
Your four-leg friend may have previous experience in going with you in a car. Anyway, this time is a bit different. Your cat is stressed, so better not to take it out of the carrier in the car until you reach your new home. A stressed cat can give you some painful scratches (all the animals are like that.) Always take your cat with you, don’t let the Cheap Removalists Melbourne transport it for you in the back of the truck in pitch black darkness. Don’t let your kids touch/assure it as it’s under stress (an angry cat is a scary small ball of fur.)
3) Introducing cat the new home:
Place it in a quiet/familiar place (environment/room.) Ask the Cheap Removalists Melbourne staff to set up that room first, so you can arrange the space for your cat. Keep all its belongings to give that “this is my home” feeling. Wait until the Cheap Removalists Melbourne staff leave to introduce it the rest of the house. With time, it will get used to that new environment (it might take a few days, though.)
Slowly, but steadily introduce your cat the garden. Cats are not like the dogs, they are demanding animals. They think “I am the boss.” Be with your cat until it fully explores the surroundings. Cats don’t usually stay at one place, they go everywhere exploring the neighborhood. If it starts exploring, then it’s a good sign. It shows your cat is settled with the new neighborhood. You can be happy so.
