Moving - suggestions?

So I'm going to be moving - hubby and I are separating. And I need tips on how to make a move less stressful for Mr. Tuffy?

Satin will be staying behind as I can only have one cat in the apartment.

I'm not sure they will miss each other - they've been getting more and more evil about getting along together. Satin will go up and bite Tuffy for no reason and Tuffy simply trys to stay out of her way as much as possible.

But I am worried about moving Tuffy - any ideas about keeping it as stress free as possible?

Keep his routine---feed him at the same time he usually gets fed. Keep him confined to one room, while everything is being moved elsewhere. When it's time to move stuff out of that room, confine him in a carrier and place r in a quiet area until you are ready to leave. At your new apt. keep him confined to the carrier until everything as been moved in (many a cat has taken off and got lost at this point) in the quietest room (bathroom?). Hope your move goes smoothly. I doubt Mr. Tuffy will miss Satin too much. He'll be busy readjusting to the new digs, and will likely really enjoy having you all to himself.

Jan Rebecca,

So sorry to hear about your separation. I know this is a tough time for everyone. I went through this about 2 years ago. It will be tough for the first few months, but hang in there, time does heal all wounds, and you will be OK. The main thing is to take care of you. Mr. Tuffy will adapt to his new home and he will also be OK...don't worry. I also think he will welcome having you all to himself again, particularly when the emotional roller coaster takes off *hugz*

The tips catloverami posted are great.

Good luck to you and Mr. Tuffy!
