When moving day arrives, no one wants to leave a loved one behind, right? However, if your pet has become clingy, standoffish, or even excited at the sight of the suitcase, you know how sensitive they can be to changes in the environment.
As a result, expect the same reaction when moving, especially if long-distance travel is involved. It can be difficult to know what to bring and what your furry companion actually requires.
TIPS: Introducing Your Pet to their New Home

SAFETY CHECK:
Before releasing your pet into his new backyard, take a quick safety check. Is the fence in good shape no spaces for your pet to wiggle through, or under? Can your pet reach the neighbor's pet through the fence, and if so, is he/she friendly? Are there any sharp objects that could pose a hazard to your pet? What about plants are there any that could be harmful to your pet if she decided to devour them? Is there any garbage lying around for your pet to get into? Is there shade available for your pet? After running through all of these checks, be sure to leave a large, cool, bowl of water for your pet, and spend some time just sitting in the backyard with him.

It is recommended that cats remain indoors. One study reported that cats who are allowed to roam free outside have an average life span of only 3 years, while indoor cats can be expected to live for an average of 13 years. If your cat has been allowed to roam in the past, now is the ideal time to break him of this habit. If you keep your cat indoors from day one in the new house, he will not have had time to establish his own turf outside and will view the indoors as his sole territory.

TRANSITION ROOM:

Select a room with a door for your cat to use as her "transition room".Place an extra litter box, food and water dishes, toys, and bedding inside with your cat. After a couple of days, when most of the boxes have been unpacked, the furniture placed, and things have generally calmed down open the door and allow your cat to venture out. Before moving her belongings to where you want to keep them, allow your cat the use of the room for another 2 or 3 days while she becomes more confident in her new surroundings.
Conclusion
Buying a home with a pet is difficult. Even if you are eager to relocate, your pet will require time to adjust to a new environment.

We hope that these moving tips will make the transition easier for you and your pet.
