Even if you are just moving across town or to a nearby city, the task of packing up all of your belongings, loading them into a truck, and taking them somewhere new can be more than a little stressful. Here you will find a list of tips to follow in order to make your move as stress-free as possible for both you and your cat:
- Gather all of your cat’s documentation, including veterinary records and a health certificate – this is especially important if you are traveling to a new state. When you find a new veterinarian, they will ask for your pet’s records, so keep them handy.
- Do not forget to update your cat’s identification tag and microchip information. Your best bet is to prepare a new identification tag for your pet before you move. That way, if your cat happens to get loose during the move or shortly thereafter, whoever finds them will be able to contact you. If your cat has a microchip, make sure to update that information as well.
