On moving day, have all the cats you're taking with you confined to one room with their carrier(s)---not the room you're moving stuff out of. Cats can get upset or run out a door during moving furniture etc. This keeps them quiet and settled in one room so they don't see and get involved in all the activity. Check out your apartment thoroughly for any holes or small spaces a cat can get through.....in cupboards, etc. in every room before you move stuff in---it's a lot easier in an empty apt. If you're moving within the same town or city, move all the stuff out first and arrange it, except for boxes and other stuff to be unpacked. Set up their food, litter trays (use their soiled litter) in the place you want them to be, so their scent is in the tray. The cats should be the last thing you move. Cats may go off their food a little when moved, but in a few days should be comfortable, and I'm sure you'll have some little helpers to help you unpack. Good luck!
