Taking a cat to different house for the weekend?
New poster here, so hello everyone.
OK, we have an indoor kitten about 8 months old. Up until about a month ago she lived in a different location for a bout three months where she had limited access to the outdoors. We will occasionally go to the old location to spend the weekend (usually only one night). My wife thinks it would be better for the cat if she comes with us rather that stay in our apartment alone. This would require transporting her in the carrier for a half hour drive.
I feel that now that the cat is getting habituated to being indoors and to this locale that it would be traumatic and confusing to move her for just one night. Also, at the other house she will probably want to go outside. My wife thinks that because she lived there before that it will be familiar to her and she will be fine.
I don't know. I would think that after more than a month here she wouldn't remember the old locale and would have to get re-acquainted just to be moved again the next day. In addition, if she gets outside--who knows how she might react.
Any insight on this matter is greatly appreciated.
