Cats are not always a big fan of change. If you ask them, they would prefer staying where they’ve already settled and are comfortable. Much of this is because they tend to develop a strong bond with their present environment.
But as ‘change is the only constant’; at some point; you have to move over to a new location with your dearie Garfield. As much traumatic the move proves for your feline friend, what you can do at best is to make the relocation less stressful.
Step 1:- Prior To Your Relocation
If you are moving across town or interstate, then the best way is to plan ahead of time to reduce your friend’s stress level. The reason being; cats can sense a change from afoot even before the moving day comes.
What you should do is maintain its routine and also look to pack the bedding, litter trays and bowls last to reduce their anxiety.
Furthermore, if your Garfield is suffering from medical conditions, then speak to the concerning vet and find out whether the relocation may trigger off some health complications in them. Furthermore; you should update the cat’s collar with the new address if they try to run away.
Step 2:- At The Time Of Relocation
If you think that the chaos of relocating to a new locale may traumatise your Garfield, then you are right! To make them relaxed, arrange for them to stay somewhere safe till you have settled at your new residence.

Step 3:-When Moving With Your Garfield To Your New Residence
One key aspect to check is ensuring you have clear access to a cat carrier. Not only does it put them at risk of sickness, but also helps reduce your feline friend’s fear, stress and anxiety.
As your cat is properly tucked inside the carrier, you can put a towel atop it to keep it safe and sound. However, do keep the carrier with you when moving from point A-B and remember to amp up the air-conditioner. Cats are always sensitive to heat and excessive stress.
Step 4:- Setting Up Garfield’s Settling Place First At The New Residence
If you do not want your cat to run away, be it in stress or being freaked out from the new location, then before anything, arrange for their resting place first. Put down their bed, their litter tray, their food and water bowls and also their favourite toys.
This will present them some semblance of similarity and will make them freak out more. The most important aspect of all is that you should always select a safe spot for keeping them. The last thing you want is to make them scared when the movers bring in all your stuff and start to unpack them one-by-one.
